Gluten Free Banana Bread Recipe

Hey! I am really excited about this recipe that I made a few days ago. Those of you that have have read my previous post, “The Lesson of the Flummery,” know that I don’t always have the best cooking skills. Well then you’ll be surprised to hear that this recipe was a great success! It’s gluten and sugar free…really healthy! You will need:

  • 1 1/2 cups gluten free flour (rice flour)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • Image1 tsp Baking soda
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 heaping tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3-4 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 cup apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix together all dry ingredients (flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, sea salt and cinnamon)
  3. In a separate bowl mix together the remaining ingredients until thoroughly mixed
  4. Mix the wet into the dry
  5. Mix until well blended
  6. Grease a 9-inch Pyrex with coconut oil and dust with a little flour
  7. Pour batter into the pan and distribute evenly with a spatula
  8. Place in the middle of the oven and bake for 40 minute or until lightly brown on top, firm to the touch and a toothpick comes out clean
  9. Option: Chocolate chips! Add about a 1/2 cup once batter is mixed. That turns this from banana bread into banana cake.
Why don’t you try it and let me know what you think. I hope you enjoy it!
