Banana Bread

Here’s a super simple, GLUTEN-FREE, low sugar banana bread recipe that your family is going to L❤️VE.  With a few modifications, this can easily be modified into a VEGAN recipe as well.
 
First, mash 3-4 ripe bananas in large mixing bowl with a fork.  Next, add the following ingredients:
  • 1 whole egg (or substitute VEGAN equivalent)
  • 3T softened coconut oil.  If you don’t have coconut oil, use 2T of a a polyunsaturated oil such as grapeseed, avocado, or EVOO.  MCT oil would also be an option.
  • 2T maple syrup, or agave
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 well-rounded tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4c brown sugar, or 1/3 cup molasses
  • 1/4c sugar, or equal parts low-sugar alternate like stevia or monkfruit
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
Fold above together loosely, then add 3/4 cup non-dairy milk (we used almond) and mix together once more.
 
Next, add 2 and 1/2 cups of a gluten-free flour.  Personally, I used equal parts almond flour and a gluten-free all-purpose flour, which provided a nice nutty and smooth balance.
 
Lastly, fold in 1 and 1/4 unrolled oats.
 
Bake in a 9×5 in loaf pan for 1 hour, or until done throughout.
