The most delicious gluten free banana bread recipe – here it is!
When I became a wife (10 years ago!) I did what all new wives do and I decided to start using my brand new KitchenAid mixer to bake things. and make things. With all of my brand spankin’ new cookbooks and cooking utensils! One of the recipes that I absolutely loved was a healthy version of banana bread.
This gluten free banana bread recipe is husband approved!
We are currently on week 2 of the 3 week yoga retreat (check out week 1’s review here!) and our nutrition is very heavily plant based and doesn’t leave room for that many treats. The hubby grumbling started around Day 6 when he was craving a treat. He said “remember when you used to make banana bread all of the time??” So I decided to break out some of the baking tools, get my big girl helper to lend some assistance and we decided to make some banana bread for Daddy, this time will a few tweaks to make it a little less indulgent, but still super yummy! Enjoy!

Gluten Free Banana Bread Recipe
2 cups gluten free flour (make your own, or make it easy! I use Aldi’s LiveGFree)
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar (you can use coconut sugar, I used Trader Joe organic sugar, but am going to swap coconut sugar next time)
1/4 cup butter (I used Kerrygold)
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup vanilla yogurt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
optional: mini chocolate chips (check your brand if you are making gluten free. Enjoy Life makes good ones!)
Preheat oven to 350°.
Measure flower into measuring cups and level with a knife. I like to sift my ingredients together, but its not necessary. You can also mix the flour, baking soda, and salt with a whisk.
Put sugar and butter in a large bowl and beat until well blended. Add eggs one at a time and beat well. Add in the bananas, yogurt and vanilla and beat until blended. Then you add the dry ingredients, in 3 parts, until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips or other add-ins if you are using. Coat a loaf pan with cooking spray (I used Trader Joe’s coconut oil spray) and spoon the batter in.
Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for a bit in the pan then let bread cool on a baking rack.
