Dessi and Rose made this easy banana bread recipe on Facebook a while back. This week, Rose and I made the recipe into muffins and they were epic. The banana bread is gluten free and refined sugar free, and comes out even better than the one you grew up with.

We also swapped out sugar for coconut sugar and you can either use coconut oil or ghee. This really is the best banana bread recipe I have ever had.

How To Make Banana Bread

Start by combining the almond flour, tapioca starch, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl and mix well. In another bowl, mash the rip bananas and set aside.

Mix the coconut sugar and egg until light and fluffy in another bowl. Add the melted ghee or butter, vanilla, and apple cider vinegar.

Add the mashed banana to the wet ingredients and then add to the dry ingredients. Mix well, add the walnuts, and transfer the banana bread batter to a prepared loaf tin and bake at 350F for 50 minutes.

Allow the banana bread to cool for 20-30 minutes until you slice it.

  1. Oh this looks delicious. I am going to try this out this weekend. My hubbie is a big fan of delicious banana bread, and me too 🙂

      1. Hi Bobby! Ok, now that I’ve been in quarantine for the last few weeks, I finally pulled out this recipe (that’s been sitting on my kitchen counter for over a YEAR!). It turned out delicious and moist. I did have to get creative because I did not have any tapioca flour (substituted with regular white flour), no white rice flour (substituted with the brown rice flour), no coconut butter (substituted pasture raised butter) and added about 1/2 cup of water, and about 2 tbs of raw honey (to help ensure it was going to be moist)…so I know my version is not gluten free and dairy free, but it turned out delicious. I ordered the missing ingredients on Amazon, so I plan on trying this recipe again. Thank You 🙂

        1. I tried this recipe again with all of the recipes noted. Wow – really DELICIOUS and moist. My husband really enjoyed it too. This will be my go to banana bread recipe for sure moving forward. I shared this recipe with family and friends. Thank you!

  2. Hello Bobby!
    My whole family and I are in GF,DF diet and We all love banana bread. I was wondering if we can substitute the bunch of different flours for just one mix of GF flour?
    I want to make this jummy looking bread but I do not want to try and error and waste all this ingredients and money in case doesn’t work.
    I want to know if it’s possible and works first with the GF mix flour.
    Thanks .

    1. You can use your favorite GF flour mix. My personal favorite is the GF flour mix from Trader Joe’s called “Namaste”.
