Gluten-Free Banana Bread with Dairy-Free Avocado Ice Cream

I don't eat many desserts. For one, I have an autoimmune disease and excess sugar is the perfect way to bring about some negative symptoms. And two, I don't tolerate dairy or gluten, so that cuts out most pre-packaged desserts. If I want a treat, I generally have to make it from scratch. Every now and then when I have time, I'll get in the kitchen and experiment. One of those days happened yesterday and it was heavenly! Here is the most wonderful dessert, especially if you have dietary restrictions.

I had a bunch of very ripe bananas, so it was either cut them up to freeze for smoothies, or put them to use in a delicious bread. I made my own banana bread recipe and have to say it turned out fantastically! This bread is NOT sweet, so if you prefer a more sweet version, this is not the one for you. It's only slightly sweet, so this is where the avocado icecream comes in!
