BEST Ever Banana Bread (Gluten Free!)

This is…just delicious!! I couldn’t get over how deliciously moist and flavorful this turned out.  The first time I made it my boyfriend and I shared a small bowl of it with spoons and it was reminiscent of a banana bread pudding! The next time I baked it for longer and it had a much more solid bread texture.

**I updated this recipe on 11/17/18 to remove brown sugar and add Blackstrap Molasses, which has nutrients such as magnesium, selenium, vitamin B6, calcium and iron-yay!

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 cup gluten free flour recipe
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Optional: 1/2 cup chocolate chips (mix into batter after all other ingredients have been combined into a homogeneous mixture)
  • Optional: 1/4-1/2 cup walnuts (sprinkle on top right before putting it in the oven)

Moist Ingredients:

  • 4 SUPER-ripe bananas (small-medium)
  • 2-3 eggs (if you use my flour recipe you want to use 3-1 extra for the coconut flour portion)
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 Blackstrap Molasses
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp real vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Grease a bread pan with coconut oil
  3. Add all dry ingredients into medium bowl and whisk together and set aside
  4. Crack the eggs into a large bowl and beat with a fork until well-mixed and fluffy
  5. Peel ripened bananas onto the eggs and carefully smash with the fork until the desired texture, I like mine on the chunky side
  6. Add the rest of the wet ingredients into the large bowl with the beaten eggs and smashed bananas and mix with the fork
  7. Slowly pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix carefully with a large wooden spoon
  8. Pour mixture into greased bread pan and bake for 55-60 minutes
  9. Remove from oven and allow the banana bread to cool for about 10-15 minutes before removing from the pan
