Baking a gluten-free banana bread is much easier than you think. The secret is the all-purpose gluten-free flour mix. I have a fantastic gluten-free flour mix recipe that you can make and store in your pantry. This recipe is free of refined sugar and there’s an option to go egg free too. It’s a healthy morning breakfast, lunch box treat, afternoon snack or late-night dessert that both kids and adults will love.
My family is addicted to this Gluten Free Banana Bread Recipe. I get requests to make it every weekend. I prefer to bake the banana bread in mini pans. I find that the ingredients hold up better – and there’s the perfect mix of a moist center with firmness on the edges.
Where to Get Kitchen Pantry Essentials
I get my other kitchen pantry supplies like sea salt, black pepper, spices, coconut oil, and other essentials either on Amazon or my local health food store usually. But then I got a Thrive membership. If you don’t already have one – it’s awesome! It’s like Whole Foods meets Costco. Bob’s Red Mill baking soda, for instance, is about $3 at my local health food store and $6 on Amazon. But it’s only $2.03 (YES!) on Thrive Market. Great deal right? And the raw honey?! Don’t even get me started how much that costs at the health food store. But on Thrive Market it’s just $5.45 for a 10.5 oz jar of raw honey.
