Banana Bread - Gluten Free

I’m a sweet lover and this banana bread is decadent and gluten-free allowing us to enjoy the health benefits and feel like we’re breaking the rules at the same time! Enjoy!

I combined a few recipes for this delicious treat. Main recipe is modified from this moist (gimmedelicious.com) GF recipe to substitute the butter and milk to plant-based sources and remove chocolate chips (which sometimes give me headaches). The cinnamon swirl recipe is taken from the recipe from www.glutenfreeonashoestring.com

  • Prep Time 15 Minutes
  • Cook Time 50 Minutes
  • Total Time 65 Minutes
  • Serves 4 People

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour
  • 4-5 ripe bananas mashed - can microwave for 1 minute to help release juices and sweetness (and allow to cool)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs (I have not tried to substitute flax eggs yet)

  • 1/2 cup virgin coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

  • Cinnamon Swirl - 2 tbsp coconut oil melted, 1/3 cup sugar, 2 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Lightly grease loaf pan. I usually line it with aluminum foil and spray the inside foil to make serving of the loaf easier.
  3. Combine all dry ingredients
  4. Combine all wet ingredients
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients
  6. Pour 1/2 of the batter into loaf pan
  7. Layer 1/2 of the cinnamon swirl mixture
  8. Pour the other 1/2 of the batter on top
  9. Layer other 1/2 of the cinnamon swirl on top
  10. Bake in oven for 50-55 minutes
  11. Check if cooked with fork or toothpick - should come out clean.
  12. Let cool for 15-30 minutes before cutting and serving.
  13. Enjoy this delicious gluten-free treat!
