Anyone else baking more often these past few months? Maybe the baking will slow down around here now that summer is beginning. But we’ve actually enjoyed cooking and baking more than ever. Last week I shared The Best Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies. Today I wanted to share my recipe for gluten-free banana bread! I’ve been making this banana bread for years, but ever since I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s I started making it gluten-free simply by substituting the flour. It’s just as delicious either way!
This is the flour I’ve been using, but if you make it grain-free or with any other flour I’d love to hear how it turns out!
I’ve always been a big believer in making every day life lovely and finding joy in the simple things. Being home so often lately could easily make us feel stir-crazy, but I’ve been using this season to be more intentional in creating an environment and daily rituals that inspire us. The comforting smell of banana bread baking in the oven definitely brought more joy to our home that day!
Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe
1 cup white sugar (I’ve also made this with applesauce instead of sugar!)
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 ripe bananas (they must be very brown and ripe!), mashed
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 cup flour (I use this gluten free flour, Bobs Red Mill 1:1)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
Chopped walnuts and dark chocolate chips, if desired.
Mix ingredients as listed, mixing in chopped walnuts if you’d like, and turn into a loaf pan.
Sprinkle chocolate chips over the top if you are a chocolate lover!
Bake at 325 degrees, 50-60 minutes.
As I wrote in my book Dwelling, there are so many simple ways we can nourish our home, body, and soul!
Have you made something yummy lately?
I hope you enjoy this recipe, let me know if you try it!
