Gluten-Free Banana Bread

Gluten-Free Banana Bread

A simple bake requiring 15 minutes to make (and the rest of the time to bake!), this gluten-free banana bread is perfect with tea or coffee. It’s even great for the lunch box if you’re looking for a sweet bite on the go. This banana bread stores in the fridge for over a week, for long-lasting deliciousness.

Gluten-Free Goodness

This recipe is a completely gluten-free bread recipe, so everyone can enjoy this delicious banana bread. To achieve this, I replaced the traditional flours used to make bread and used almond flour mixed with coconut flour instead.

This recipe is also suitable for vegans – simply ditch the eggs and use 2 tbsp flaxseeds with 2 tbsp chia seeds pre-soaked in 1/4 cup water. This will serve as an alternative for your eggs. Make sure to follow the vegan method if you decide to go eggless for this recipe – this means you will have to use 1 tsp of baking soda rather than ¾ tsp to keep your recipe balanced.
