Gluten-Free Banana Bread (Using Coconut Oil & Maple Syrup)


August 12, 2017

Dear Readers,

This recipe was inspired by the ripe bananas sitting on our island countertops… just kidding! On a serious note, this recipe is my honest attempt at finding the perfect mix of healthy yet delicious banana bread. Typically, most banana breads are made with wheat flour, unsalted butter and brown sugar. In this recipe, I changed things up to be a little bit healthier and because of my step-dad’s celiac disease it also needed to be gluten-free. I used rice flour, coconut oil, and maple syrup instead of the other ingredients I previously mentioned. Meaning, this recipe is 100% gluten-free and a little bit more guilt-free than most!

FACT: glutinous rice flour DOES NOT HAVE GLUTEN. Read more: “Is glutinous rice flour gluten free?”
