Banana Bundt Cake Recipe

Banana bread or banana muffins are things I make almost weekly. As I’ve said before, I think my kids leave bananas to get ripe just so I will have to make it. They know I hate to waste things. One thing I like to do is read a bunch of different recipes, read the comments and then start coming up with my own recipe by combining some of the ideas from like six or seven other recipes and comments. Sometimes it works out OK and sometimes it doesn’t. Today was one of those days that it worked out perfectly! This banana bundt cake recipe is amazing.

Recipe Notes

If you prefer to use regular flour over gluten free flour, then use it! The measurements are the same!

In this recipe, as I do with pretty much ALL recipes requiring flour, I used gluten free flourbanana bundt cake. If you would prefer to make banana bundt cake recipe with regular flour, then by all means, do so! Not only is banana bundt cake recipe super moist, but the hint of cinnamon is perfect. And, believe me, that’s coming from someone that truly hates cinnamon.

I can’t tell you how good my house smelled when this banana bundt cake was baking! The kids were dying to cut into it as I was pulling it out of the oven. Now I chose not to top this banana bundt cake with anything, but you could totally do so, if you wanted. You could go simple with powered sugar or you could make a cream cheese frosting glaze. Whatever you choose to do, this will be a banana bread recipe that you will want to make over and over again!

Oatmeal Banana Cinnamon Crunch Bread

My kids are notorious for leaving bananas on the counter so they get too ripe to eat, but are perfect for banana bread. I think…no…I know…they do it on purpose. In fact, just the other day my son asked me when I was planning on making banana bread. The bananas were NOT over-ripe just yet! He was planning ahead! Well, he’s in luck! Today I made a gluten free oatmeal banana cinnamon crunch bread. Not just one layer of crunch, but two yummy layers!

Chocolate Peppermint Chip Cookies

Don’t these cookies sound amazing? They are the perfect amount of chocolate and peppermint. My son would prefer MORE white chocolate peppermint chips, while my daughter would prefer less. One thing you could do is sprinkle extra chips on the cookies when they come out of the oven. However, it’s definitely not necessary (well…unless you are like my son)…the cookies are delicious just the way they are.

Gluten Free or Not!

I made these chocolate peppermint chip cookies with Namaste Foods Gluten Free Fourchocolate peppermint chip cookies. However, if you don’t have to or want to make them gluten free, then don’t! Simply use the same amount of flour that is not gluten free! They turn out perfectly with either flour you choose to use!

You have plenty of time to make these for Christmas. If you are having a hard time finding the white chocolate peppermint chips, check your local grocery store. I found my at Kroger. If you have a Christmas celebration that is after Christmas (like I do), order them on Amazon!
