My latest banana bread addiction is my homemade loaf using Simple Mills‘ gluten-free banana bread mix. The gluten-free mix contains almond meal which gives the banana bread a crumbly texture. But wait, it gets better after toasting, and being made into a triple decker sandwich with fresh banana, nut butter and yogurt.

What are you waiting for? Grab a slice of banana bread and get creative in the kitchen.

How To Freeze Banana Bread

This banana bread bread freezes well! Simply wrap in plastic, then tightly in foil and finally place in a reusable bag or freezer friendly bag for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature once you are ready to eat. You can also feel free to freeze individual slices for a quick on the go treat!

What Makes This Banana Bread Nourishing & Healthy

Theres a reason why I call this banana bread nourishing and it isnt just because I love that word rather its because this bread is a delicious nutrient-dense option to enjoy for breakfast, snacks and even a treat. Heres what makes this banana bread healthy & wonderful:

  • Almond flour is high in protein, vitamin E, fiber, healthy fats and low carb. Its great for those who want to incorporate a more nutrient dense flour into their diet. Feel free to check out more of my recipes using almond flour here.
  • Flaxseed meal is a staple ingredients in my diet. I love putting it in smoothies, using it as an egg replacement in vegan recipes, and additionally, it happens to be high in fiber, protein and omega 3 fatty acids. You can read more about flaxseeds here.
  • Naturally sweetened: this almond flour banana bread is naturally sweetened with only bananas, which helps to keep it fairly low sugar.

The first time I baked this up, Tony and I couldnt stop going back for a second very thick slice. Its especially good when topped with butter and a sprinkle of sea salt. I also do highly recommend using chocolate chips because it sweetens up the banana bread perfectly.

How Long Should Gluten Free Banana Bread Cool

Let your banana bread cool in the pan for at least ten minutes. Remember, most cakes, cupcakes, and quick breads continue to cook some after being removed from the oven.

Allowing it time to cool will help it set up, and help keep it from falling apart in a steamy mess when you remove it from the pan.

So the past few weeks have been all about cookies. Plus, tomorrow I and over 500 food bloggers will be sharing cookie swap recipes be sure to keep an eye out for that!

But back to the holiday at hand I wanted to make a classic holiday bread but with a unique spin, something interesting and out-of-the-box to contribute to such a special occasion. Im a sucker for banana bread so I couldnt resist making it. I decided to make a gluten-free version of my favorite banana bread recipe. Lately, a few of my family members have switched over to a gluten-free diet so its been kind of hard adjusting.

At first, I didnt know if I had to replace every ingredient when baking for them but Ive found a much easier way to make my own recipes. All you do is use Bobs Red Mill Wheat Free, Gluten-free, Dairy-Free, 1 to 1 baking flour. I love it because you basically replace all-purpose flour with Bobs Red Mill gluten-free flour. Simply follow your favorite baking recipe, replacing the wheat flour with this extraordinary blend. It is perfectly formulated for baked goods with terrific taste and texture no additional specialty ingredients or custom recipes required so you can turn any recipe into a gluten-free recipe with ease!

Ingredients For Almond Flour Banana Bread

  • Ripe bananas: 3 very ripe bananas deep yellow colour with plenty of black spots on the outside. This makes or breaks the banana bread recipe with almond flour. Just like in my healthy banana pancakes recipe.

How can you tell if a banana has spoiled? While a banana with dark spots is preferred as it produces a sweeter almond flour banana bread, if there are white spots on the inside after you peel it and the banana is runny- this means the banana has spoiled.

  • Almond flour: Almond flour tastes different from any other flour. It is basically finely ground raw blanched almonds. It adds a moist, melt in your mouth texture, almost like cotton candy . It produces the most amazing real desserts like in my almond flour brownie recipe so much fudge is going on!
  • Eggs: Provides lift and structure to this bread. Need an egg-free + gluten free banana bread? I have had success using a chia egg!
  • Sweetener: Use any liquid sweetener like maple syrup, honey, agave etc. I also tested this recipe with same amount of Lakanto monkfruit sweetener . Taste was great!

Because almond flour already has a sweeter, nuttier taste you are able to use less sugar in almond flour bakes!

While there are some grain free baking powders on the market, they can be a bit pricey and hard to find. Luckily, its easy to make your own at home using 2 parts cream of tartar to 1 part baking soda. Tapioca starch or arrowroot powder can be added to prevent clumping.

Tips From The Pillsbury Kitchens

HOW TO MAKE Simple Mills Artisan Bread Loaf | Krysten’s Kitchen
  • tip 1 Its important to grease just the bottom of the loaf pan, so the batter can climb evenly up the pan’s sides to create a nicely rounded top crust. And remember to mix up the batter until the dry ingredients are moisteneda few streaks of flour are okay. Overmixing will cause the loaf to be dense, with tunnels running through it.
  • tip 2 To ripen bananas quickly, place them in a brown paper bag at room temperature for 1 to 2 days.
  • tip 3 When the loaf is fully baked, the top should crackthats a hallmark of moist-crumbed quick bread.
  • tip 4 Use this base recipe as a starting point for other snack loaves. For Applesauce Bread: substitute 1 cup applesauce for the mashed bananas and stir ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon into the flour mixture. Berry-Banana Bread: stir in ½ cup sweetened dried cranberries into the flour mixture. Banana-Chocolate Chunk Bread: Stir ½ cup mini semi-sweet chocolate bar into the flour mixture, skipping the nuts.

Bananas– For this recipe you need 3 large bananas that are overripe. For the best banana bread, I like to use bananas that are at least halfway brown on the outside.

Oil – For moisture, you can use either melted butter or an oil of your choosing. Vegetable, canola, avocado, and coconut oil all work well.

Yogurt – For additional moisture without added fat, plain yogurt is added. You have options with this ingredient too. Use regular or dairy free yogurt, Greek or not. You can also use applesauce, another fruit puree, or more oil.

Sugar – regular granulated sugar gives the best texture and the perfect amount of sweetness.

Eggs – Eggs hold everything together and aid in helping this quick bread rise and brown up nicely.

Vanilla Extract – a good quality, gluten-free vanilla extract adds a deep, warm flavor to banana bread.

Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour – You can use your favorite blend. I used Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 baking blend.

Baking Powder and Baking Soda – these are the workhorses of most quick breads. They replace yeast as a leavener, and help the bread to rise in the oven.

Salt – a pinch of salt in baked goods enhances the sweetness.

Making This Recipe In Advance

Storing: First 24 hours, we store banana bread on a counter right in the loaf pan covered with towel. After, I transfer any leftovers to resealable plastic bag to prevent it from drying. Bread stays fresh on a counter for up to 3 days making it great for meal prep. After you can refrigerate for another 3 days.

Freezing: Bake banana bread and cool completely. I recommend you do not slice bread before placing in the freezer. It retains its moisture better this way. Place in a gallon size Ziploc container, let out as much air as possible and seal. Freeze for up to 3 months.

Thawing and reheating: Defrost on a counter. Takes about 3-4 hours. Bread will taste just like freshly baked. Pop it into a toaster for a minute for that freshly baked bread warmth and aromas.

Enjoy this almond flour banana bread!

Add Fresh Berries To The Mix

This will help you get that antioxidant boostbut don’t forget about your nut butter. This especially works great if your banana bread is on the sweeter side, as the acidity from the berries cut through the richness of the banana bread, so you can eat more of it without feeling stuffed.
