Recipe: Gluten free Banana Bread

I was searching for a Banana Bread recipe that was gluten free and found this recipe which is also sugar free and dairy free, which suits me just fine! I have adapted this recipe from a book I recently downloaded by Alexx Stuart called real treats, 68 Gluten, Grain and Dairy free sweets.  I have changed it to suit the ingredients I had in my pantry.

The taste is very ‘bananery’, but it still has a spongey softness to it. Now, I wrote that it is sugar free but don’t let that fool you, it’s still sweet, it just doesn’t use conventional, refined sugar ( which is referred to as addictive poison by various groups). This is a whole food banana cake.  If you try it, let me know what you think. I like it.

What you need

  • 3 eggs 
  • 100ml coconut oil, melted
  • 90 ml maple syrup (the real stuff)
  • 1 tsp baking powder (gluten free)
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 1tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 medium bananas
  • 90g gluten free self raising flour (I used the ‘has no…’ Brand  from Aldi)
  • 20g almond meal  

What you do

  1. Preheat oven to 180c and grease a loaf tin
  2. Beat eggs, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon until combined
  3. Add mashed banana. Mix till combined
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients (all the dry) and mix till combined
  5. Pour mixture into tin and bake for 30-40 minutes or u till a skewer comes out clean. 
  6. Cool on a rack or start eating. 
Notes: 
  • Lessen bananas to 2 for a drier loaf, which is good for toasting. 
  • Add walnuts at the last stage if u want
  • Substitute banana for 1.5 cups grated carrot for a carrot cake loaf
  • Use a muffin tin to make muffins
  • This recipe freezes well
