Banana Bread (Vegan and Gluten Free)

IMG_0380I had a stash of bananas on my counter that were the perfect “banana bread” brown. I was originally going to make muffins, and would have gotten a much larger batch to last a longer time, but it has been a while since we’ve had banana bread in this house and it was just time to bring it back. So I made this  Vegan recipe that I dug up from our BC Days when I was off dairy and turned it gluten free. It is safe to say that the boys liked it, as it only survived a few short hours. The bread doesn’t rise as high as it does when made with regular flour, but don’t be fooled by the short loaf- it is still crazy good, and very moist!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 bananas
  • 1/4 cup honey/maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 4 TBSP water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups gluten free all-purpose flour** (or regular wheat flour if you prefer it)
  • ½ cup of finely ground walnuts
  • 2 TBSP ground flax seed
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda **I was low on all purpose so I mixed ¼ of Bob’s Red Mill GFAP with 1 cup oat flour, ¼ cup coconut flour, ¼ cup buckwheat flour, ¼ cup quinoa flour.

METHOD:

  1. Mix wet ingredients together in a bowl. Add in dry ingredients and mix until just wet. (Too much mixing will make the bread really crumbly so you don’t want to overdo it).
  2. Place in a greased loaf pan and place in preheated oven set to 350F for 50-60 minutes, until top is well browned.
  3. Allow to cool slightly before slicing.
