There’s nothing like the smell of warm banana bread in the house.

Banana bread is heaven in a loaf pan! Seriously though, it’s great for breakfast, as a snack, for dessert… must I go on? I’m pretty sure I could eat banana bread all day long. Anyone want to hold me accountable to that challenge? Haha

This recipe is easy, moist and requires 9 ingredients (not counting the dash of salt). For those with intolerances, this banana bread is gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan (however, you may use real eggs if you want to) and refined-sugar free! PLUS, it’s a one bowl recipe! Don’t we all love a delicious recipe with minimal cleanup?

Seriously guys this shhh** is bananas and you need it in your life right now !!

  1. Hi! I want to make these ASAP, they look amazing!
    What brand of gluten-free flour do you use?

  2. I have not tested it other ways but you should be able to substitute maple syrup. πŸ™‚
