½ cup Miracle Whip

WARNING: Geoff has never had a reaction to Miracle Whip, but we have heard from readers that Kraft does not guarantee that it is completely gluten free. Please see Kraft’s statement on gluten labeling here.

3 ripe bananas, mashed

TIP: To ripen bananas, leave in your freezer overnight.

1 teaspoon xanthan gum

¼ cup coconut flour

3/4  cup rice flour

¼ cup four flour blend or other all purpose gf flour

TIP: Or you can use a full cup of rice flour and omit the all purpose. It’s here really just to lighten the blend a bit.

  3. I remember this one. 🙂 This was the recipe that was next on my list of things to make before we did the allergy testing and found the coconut allergy. I still think it sounds so fascinating…using Miracle Whip. Is it kind of the same results as using mayo in chocolate cake?
