It is so easy to make gluten-free banana bread from scratch! This incredibly moist bread is wonderful fresh out of the oven and served with a pat of butter.
Don’t you just love the smell of fresh-baked bread? There is nothing better on a cold winter morning than a warm slice of moist gluten-free banana bread. It is delicious alongside a plate of fluffy scrambled eggs. This mouth-watering quick bread is also a great afternoon snack with a cup of hot tea or coffee.
I wait until my banana skins are almost all black on the outside to make this recipe from scratch.The extra ripe banana adds so much flavor.
I like to make two smaller loaves and pop one in the freezer to serve when company unexpectedly drops by. I heat it up in the oven and before long the house fills with a tantalizing aroma. It takes no time at all for you to make this easy homemade banana bread.
I don’t think there is anything better than a homemade gift from the kitchen! Gluten-free banana bread is a perfect gift idea for a birthday or “welcome to the neighborhood”. Try tucking a loaf in a basket lined with a pretty dish towel and a jar of your favorite homemade preserves are super cute! Or cut it into slices and place on a pretty plate. The possibilities are endless!!!
Incredibly moist. Nothing says homemade more than a fresh loaf of banana bread. Serve this delicious bread hot or cold, with a pat of butter.
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 2 large eggs
- 3 to 4 medium bananas, mashed
- 1/3 cup of water
- 1 2/3 cup gluten-free almond blend flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 1/2 cup nuts, chopped (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease bottom only of a large loaf pan (9x5x3 inches).
- In a large mixing bowl, beat the sugar and butter together until creamy. Mix in eggs, one at a time. Add bananas and water. Beat until just blended.
- Sift together dry ingredients. Stir in dry ingredients until just moistened. Stir in nuts, if desired. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
- Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 50 to 60 minutes. Remove from oven and cool 5 minutes. Remove loaf from pan and allow to cool on a wire rack.
For maximum flavor use very ripe bananas.
I add the bananas directly to the batter and mix in. If you prefer, you can mash them before adding to the batter.
