Gluten Free Banana Bread

I am loving this banana bread! It tastes amazing and as well as being gluten free it is also cane sugar free. I have played around with the amount of banana the bread has. Two will give you a drier type of bread, three is incredibly moist and two and a half seems just about right. It will very much depend on the size of your bananas though, so keep that in mind.

Gluten Free Banana Bread

Ingredients:

  • 2 ½ large bananas
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut cream
  • 3 tbsp macadamia oil
  • 1 ½ cup almond meal
  • 2 tbsp desiccated coconut
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¾ tsp gluten free baking powder
  • 3 tbsp walnuts

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius.

2. Break up banana into chunks in a large bowl. Mash bananas with a masher or use a stick blender. The riper the bananas the better!

7. Pour into a loaf tin, lined with baking paper. The bread mixture is more runny than what you are probably used to, but go with it as it does firm up.

8. Bake for 40 minutes. If the skewer comes out clean it is ready.

9. Let the bread sit in the tin for about 10 minutes before removing.

It tastes incredibly delicious toasted lightly under a grill and then buttered!
