This Healthy Gluten Free Banana Bread is a tried and true banana bread! It’s soft, moist, healthy and refined sugar free! I guarantee you’ll love this!
It’s been quite the week for me in the kitchen. I caught the cooking bug and can’t seem to stop cooking! One of the things I haven’t done in a while was baking, and I made this banana bread not once, not twice, but three times ladies & gentlemen! Having a 3 year background in a baking business and catering, I have always found that while cooking is a lot more free form, baking is precise.
This is exactly why I made sure that I had to perfect this healthy banana bread recipe before sharing it with you, and then the baking monster in me made it three times because it is just that good. This bread is the answer to your prayers!
I have had a lot of readers request an easy gluten free banana bread from me, because, who doesn’t want to have their banana bread (cake) and eat it too? Although I am now suitably comfortable with gluten free cooking and baking, it’s always a challenge when using an old recipe and turning it into a gluten free recipe. You don’t want it to “taste gluten free” and you want it to be able to compete with a regular banana bread. This definitely competes with my regular banana bread, which is the recipe I based this off of.
This bread bakes up absolutely beautiful. I love how fluffy it is. It has an excellent crust, and if you’re like my dad, you love a great crust on a banana bread. In fact, he was one of my original recipe testers for this dish, and I think his actions definitely proved his love for it, those actions being absolutely devouring his slice and proceeding unto a second slice immediately. My husband, the anti-dessert eater, thoroughly enjoyed this too, going for a second slice. I’m pretty sure I’ve converted him by now, since he also devoured my gluten free doughnuts If these aren’t compliments and proof, what is?!
The test of a great banana bread is the moist test. Yes, we all hate the word moist, but this bread is moist which is my favourite part. This is definitely thanks to the coconut oil and the greek yogurt. The banana flavour shines through despite the fact that there are two coconut ingredients in here, and all the unrefined ingredients simply compliment the banana. The walnuts and oats add a great soft crunch factor and the chocolate chips add even more creaminess. This healthy gluten free banana bread is definitely a winner in my books.
