This gluten-free banana bread is cooked to be moist and filled with that rich banana flavor that we all know and love.

When you take this banana bread out of the oven, you will be greeted with the delicious aromas of the baked banana. The bread itself will be moist, fluffy, and will have a nice crispiness outside.

The flavors of this bread are everything you expect from good quality banana bread. There's a slight hint of cinnamon, good banana flavors, and it's sweet but not overly sweet.

This bread is an excellent all-rounder and is perfect for breakfast, dessert or even as a snack. Personally, I love having it for breakfast as it is easy to cut and eat.

You'll be glad to see that this recipe is fairly easy to prepare quickly. It is perfect if you just want a delicious snack sooner rather than later.

What to eat with this banana bread

You can eat the bread as it is, or you can toast it and eat it with a little butter. Both options are excellent and taste delicious.

If you want to take this banana bread to the next level, caramelize some sliced ​​bananas in a buttered skillet. Slice the banana bread and add the caramelized bananas on top of each piece. Sprinkle a little maple syrup or honey on top to complete the dish.

To turn this into a meal, you can use this banana bread as a replacement for normal bread in a bread pudding. It is a delicious twist that I recommend trying. I love doing it as it can easily feed quite a few people from a single batch.

Adjust recipe

You can add some chocolate chips to the bread mix to get some chocolate. I recommend adding about half a cup of chocolate chips. If you love chocolate, then you will probably be happier with a full cup.

For a little extra crunch, you can add some chopped nuts to the banana bread mix and on top of the loaf. I recommend using walnuts or almonds. I think walnuts would be the best option.

This banana bread will stay fresh for a couple of days as long as you store it in a sealed container or wrapped in plastic wrap. After a couple of days, you may want to toast the bread before eating it.

You can also freeze bread if you know you're not going to eat it fast enough. It should last up to six months in the freezer.

Recipe tips

  • Honey can be omitted if you don't have any or don't want to add it. Alternatively, you can use regular sugar as a replacement.
  • Overripe bananas are best for this recipe, as they are easier to mash and taste much stronger.
  • Lining the bread pan is crucial as it will prevent the gluten-free banana bread from sticking to the sides.
  • If you want to add some more flavors to the banana bread then you can try adding some chocolate chips or nuts. Both ingredients are great with bananas, so I recommend adding them if you want to experiment a little.
  • If your banana bread starts to burn on top, then cover it with aluminum foil. This method will slow down browning, allowing the bread to cook completely.
