Author Notes

Not diabetic friendly, this is GF loaf that I use with a variety of fillings. I've most often done lemon-fruit (raspberry, blueberry), but this one goes classic with banana, oats, and chocolate chunks. My experience with bananas is "why wait?" If it is banana taste you want, a reasonably well past green but still yellow banana works fine. Cooking with those sugar-filled black ones is not worth waiting for. Although I make this in a loaf pan, these are (je ne sais quoi?) 8 "dessert blocks" rather than 8 slices. —Brian Coppola

What You'll Need
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1.5 cups Gluten free flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 ripe but not overripe bananas
  • 1.5 cups dark chocolate chunks
  1. Break eggs into a mixing bowl, add the sugar, vanilla, and sour cream, blend with an electric mixer.
  2. Add the butter while mixing.
  3. Add the broken-up bananas and mix to mostly smooth.
  4. Add the flour and baking powder. Finish mixing.
  5. Fold in the oats and chocolate.
  6. Pour into to a 9 x 5 bread pan decked out with parchment.
  7. Bake covered (leave enough parchment to fold over) at 350F for 50-60 minutes (uncovering for the last 10-15 minutes)
  8. Remove and let cool on a rack, after lifting from the pan
  9. After it is cooled, use a good knife and cut into 8 large cubes instead of 8 slices. This is more of a cake than a bread.
