Healthy, Gluten-Free Banana Bread Recipe

So in the midst of this pandemic that we are all currently going through, there seems to be a new craze for cooking banana bread whilst we all endure lockdown at home and I couldn’t resist jumping on the bandwaggon after a few yummy, drool-worthy, Instagram photos of my friends banana bread efforts popped up!

As a long-term IBS sufferer, gluten-intolerant, I needed to find a recipe that would not upset my stomach!  So after digging around on the web, and then realising that I only had part of the ingredients for one recipe and half the ingredients for another I decided to improvise and throw together my own mix!

This healthy gluten-free banana bread recipe is free from refined sugars, contains no additives and is practically one of your five-a-day!

How to make my gluten-free Banana Bread

Ingredients:

  • 3 ripe bananas 2 mashed, 1 sliced for toppings
  • 85g almond flour
  • 10g coconut flakes
  • 15g gluten-free oats
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 71g organic maple syrup, maple syrup or honey

Optional extra:

  • 43g pecans or walnuts

Cooking Method:

Cooking my gluten-free banana bread is as easy as 1,2,3 with this quick, throw in a bowl, the recipe I have created from adapting other recipes to suit what I had in the house!

1. Mashup 2 bananas in a bowl & line a baking tin with greaseproof paper
2. Add all other ingredients to the bowl and stir well until you have a smooth batter consistency (I left my food processor churning round for around 5-10mins)
3. Pour batter into the lined tray, top with thinly sliced bananas (using your third banana) and cook for 30-35 mins at 180ºC Fan Oven in the centre of the oven.

Topping ideas:

  • Drizzled dark chocolate
  • Peanut butter
  • Sugar-free coffee icing, drizzled
