1 teaspoon cinnamon

V teaspoon nutmeg

V cup butter

1 cup mashed banana (2 to 3 ripe bananas)

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a loaf pan.

Sift together the garbanzo bean and sorghum flours, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar. To the butter and sugar mixture, add the eggs one at a time, beating after each egg is added. Add the dry ingredients, mixing well. Add the mashed banana, mixing well.

Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake 55 minutes. Test for doneness using a toothpick. If it comes out clean, the bread is done. Cool bread in the pan before removing.
