G-Free Banana Bread With Sunflower Seeds

OOOooo yummy y'all!!  My first attempt at baking gluten free turned out great!  I borrowed the recipe from this great blog a friend suggested, A Girl Takes on The World - she has the best sounding recipes!  Since I'm new to the g-free life, I wanted to try this simple recipe out for starters.  AND in true Stephanie style, I had to toss in my own little twist.
Here is my yummy banana bread...
   1/4 cup Crisco
   1 Egg
   1 tsp. Baking soda
   3-4 Brown Bananas
   1 cup Brown Sugar
   1/2 cup Rice flour
   1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
   1 tsp Salt
   1/2 cup Sunflower Seeds (unsalted)

1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the Crisco and  brown sugar and beat together until smooth.
2) Add in the egg, flour, salt, baking soda, & xanthan gum.
3) In separate bowl, mash up the bananas with mixer or a fork and then add them to dough mixture.
4) Combine all the ingredients until well mixed.  Add sunflower seeds.  The dough is not going to be completely smooth as the banana will still be chunky.  Pour into a greased loaf pan. 
5) Bake for 1 hour and ENJOY!
