Easy Gluten Free Banana Bread Recipe (Vegan, Dairy-Free)


Description

Easy Gluten Free Banana Bread Recipe: learn how to make gluten free banana bread that’s deliciously moist with a soft crumb & beautiful rise. Vegan, Dairy-Free, Plant-Based.


Ingredients

Scale

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons mashed, very ripe bananas (about 3 medium bananas)
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon golden ground flaxseed + 3 tablespoons water, whisk together, set for 15 mins)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cups + 2 tablespoons gluten free oat flour – if using homemade oat flour, make sure it’s very finely ground (not coarse)*
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Add-ins

  • 1 cup add-ins of your choice – use nut-free if necessary (walnuts, chocolate chips, chopped dried fruit)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside.
  2. Peel bananas and add to a large mixing bowl. Using a dough blender (recommended) or sturdy whisk or fork, mash bananas until smooth. Add the coconut oil, maple syrup, flax egg and vanilla. Whisk until well incorporated.
  3. Add oat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk together until just incorporated, making sure no flour patches remain. Fold in add-ins.
  4. Pour batter evenly into prepared loaf pan. Using a rubber spatula, smooth batter into an even layer, with the shape of a rise down the center—just like a loaf. Using a butter knife, cut a slit slightly off center down the loaf.
  5. Bake for 60-70 minutes. Mine took 65 minutes. Test for doneness by sticking a toothpick into the center of the loaf. The toothpick will come out clean when the loaf is done. Cool in pan placed on a cooling rack for 1 hour. Pinch parchment paper & lift paper + banana bread onto cooling rack to complete cooling, about 1-2 additional hours. Slice and enjoy.

  1. Easy and delish! Banana bread has become my favorite guilty pleasure lately and your recipe makes me feel not so guilty LOL. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This is my go to recipe now for banana bread. I have food intolerances and it has been such a challenge to find a good recipe that has 100% ingredients I can have. My whole family likes this banana bread especially my son who is vegan. Thank you!

  3. Love this banana bread. We spread no sugar peanut butter over the slices, so good!

  4. You can’t go wrong with a loaf of banana bread, can you? 🙂 Do you think I can substitute the flax egg with normal egg?
