Secretly Healthy Banana Bread (Gluten Free)


Description

This Secretly Healthy Banana Bread tastes just like classic banana bread, but it’s gluten-free, oil-free, & refined sugar-free! It’s made with oat flour for a texture very similar to the original.


Ingredients

Scale
  • ½ cup honey or maple syrup
  • ¾ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups gluten-free oat flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1½ cups mashed ripe bananas
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips, optional but encouraged

Instructions

  1. Grease one 9″x5″ loaf pan and preheat the oven to 350º F.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the eggs, honey, applesauce, mashed banana and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, and cinnamon and add to the wet ingredients. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  3. Spoon batter into the prepared pan and bake about one hour or until a toothpick comes out clean or with a few crumbs attached. Let cool, and enjoy!

Notes

Make your own oat flour by grinding oats in a blender or food processor until they’re a fine powder!
