This week's Recipe Feature: Gluten Free Banana Bread

Gluten Free Banana Bread

Just look at how beautiful that loaf of Gluten Free Banana Bread is! As you can see, it looks just like your momma's Banana Bread and even has some tasty little chocolate chips in it, but it is made with unrefined grains (i.e. Gluten Free Oatmeal) and natural sweeteners (i.e. bananas) with Dark Chocolate Chips (optional for those with a sweeter tooth, like me)!

How to make Gluten Free Banana Bread

Ingredients: (makes 12 servings)

  • 4 small over-ripe bananas (with lots of brown spots)
  • 2 cups Gluten Free Rolled Oats
  • 3 tbsp. Natural / Pure Honey
  • 2 tbsp. Organic / Unrefined Coconut Oil (melted in microwave)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup Dark Chocolate Chips (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 deg. F and grease a loaf pan liberally with non-stick coconut oil.
  2. Blend rolled oats in a high speed blender until an oat flour forms. In a mixing bowl, mix all dry ingredients together (oat flour, cinnamon, baking powder) and set aside.
  3. In another mixing bowl, mash bananas and add honey, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract - mix thoroughly.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well. Fold in the chocolate chips (if using, which I highly recommend!).
  5. Pour batter into greased loaf pan and bake for 45-55 minutes (until center is cooked well - test by piercing the bread with a fork and if the tongs come out clean, then the bread is done).
  6. Let cool in pan for about 10-15 minutes. Remove from the pan and devour!
The batter, mixed and ready to be poured into the loaf pan and baked!
