Author Notes: A delightful banana bread that is moist and gluten-free with a secret ingredient: olive oil. Healthier alternative to the usual banana bread with granulated sugar and wheat flour. Sweetened with maple syrup or honey. —Adrienne
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 25 min
cup mashed bananas (does not have to be ripe, but don't use green)
cup olive oil
eggs (if vegan, egg alternative)
tablespoons maple syrup
cups all purpose flour (I used ½ c. almond flour, ½ c. cashew flour, ¼ c. sprouted brown rice four and ¼ c. coconut flour)
teaspoon baking soda
pinches sea salt
- Preheat oven and bake at 350ºF. Stir flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl to incorporate. Can sift flour, but it is not a must.
- In a larger bowl, add wet ingredients (I recommend mashing the bananas first, measuring bananas until 1 cup, and then adding other wet ingredients), and whisk ingredients together.
- Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients stirring well to combine. Put a little oil at bottom of bread loaf pan so as to prevent sticking and pour batter into pan. Smooth top of batter before putting in oven.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes (check for your preference of bread consistency). Let cool in pan once removed from oven for about five minutes.
