Another Gluten Free Banana Bread Recipe

I know what you are thinking. You don’t need another banana bread recipe but I assure you, you do! There’s never enough banana bread recipes if you ask me. I always strive for perfection so I like to take my old recipes and revamp them so they not only taste better but healthier too! This recipe is different than some of my previous recipes because it’s simple. It’s just classic banana bread without toppings, flavors or add ins–just banana bread!


Here’s what you will need to make this classic gluten free banana bread in under one hour!
  • overly ripe bananas (ya know, the spotted ones!)
  • unsweetened applesauce
  • egg whites
  • egg (can use all egg whites if needed)
  • coconut sugar
  • gluten free baking flour
  • coconut oil
  • vanilla extract, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon

You can make this classic gluten free banana bread in one bowl by placing the mashed bananas, egg, egg whites, applesauce, coconut oil, coconut sugar and vanilla into a mixing bowl and whisking until thick or by using a hand held mixer and beating until thick. Add in the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir just until combined. Transfer to a baking pan and bake until thoroughly cooked. THAT’S IT!
