Banana Bread (Gluten and Dairy Free)
Looking for a healthier banana bread? This recipe contains ingredients such as coconut sugar, almond flour, oat flour, and flaxseed meal.
Servings: 1 loaf bread
- 1 tbsp coconut oil for oiling pan
- 3 ripe bananas
- 4 large eggs
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar substitute brown or white sugar
- 1/2 cup coconut oil substitute canola or light olive oil
- 2 cups oat flour
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit and grease the inside of a 9"x 5" loaf pan with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil.
Take 3 ripe bananas (the browner the better) and mash in a large mixing bowl using a fork. Add liquid coconut oil to bananas (if your coconut oil is solid, melt in microwave first). Add eggs and sugar and blend with a whisk or mixer to combine the wet ingredients.
In a separate bowl, use a spoon to mix all dried ingredients together: oat flour, almond flour, flaxseed meal, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon. Add the dried ingredients slowly into the wet ingredients and mix well. Add walnuts or other mix-ins to the final dough, if using.
Pour the mixture into the loaf pan. This bread will rise, so if you are worried about spillage put a sheet pan underneath the loaf pan. Bake for 30 minutes and check on doneness by inserting a toothpick in the largest part of the bread. If it is dry you can remove from the oven, otherwise cook for another 5 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes and then serve.
