How has it taken me this long to finally come up with a CLASSIC BANANA BREAD recipe to call my own? I’ve had my account for two years, and this blog for almost one, and I have yet to share your basic, healthier banana bread recipe…but wait no more! We finally have the recipe ready to share!
This is my IDEAL banana bread – sweet, dense, banana-y, and you can’t even tell its gluten, dairy, and sugar free! Another plus, it’s nut free as well! I wanted anyone and everyone to be able to use this recipe – whether you want just a classic slice, or you’re using it as a base for a special flavor, this banana bread is sure to please!
All you need is 7 simple ingredients, one bowl, and about an hour to make this easy loaf!
My secret to the fluffiest, lightest and most delicious banana bread – YOGURT! I can’t believe I shared my top secret ingredient, but there you have it. I add yogurt to almost all of my bread and muffin recipes – you just can’t beat the texture it provides. Not to mention, if you use greek, it adds tons of protein without even noticing!
I made this bread nut and gluten free by using oat flour, a staple of mine in baking, but I think almond, cassava, or a gluten free 1:1 baking flour would work well as a substitute (PS – I haven’t tested any other flour yet)! I also used Monkfruit sweetener to keep this recipe sugar free, but again, I think coconut sugar would work well as a substitute if you don’t have Monkfruit (Again, not tested, but am pretty sure it would work)!
So, without further ado, I give you my CLASSIC BANANA BREAD!
