Moist, Gluten and Dairy Free Banana Bread

I'm going to be real honest. I've always hated banana bread. {gasp!}

But it's true; 1. I hate nuts in my bread (i love nuts, just not in my bread, ya know?). 2. I don't always like taste of bananas not it's natural form or blended into a smoothie.

But last night, I had 3 bananas that needed some loving and boy, did I give it to them. I made a pretty delicious, moist, nut free and healthy banana bread. And it was all around midnight. #GoMe
  • 3 bananas mashed
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup of applesauce
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  1. Preheat oven to 350-375.
  2. In a large bowl mix mashed banana, eggs, oil, honey, sugar, vanilla, and applesauce. Mix well. If you like your banana bread to have chunks of banana, don't mash as much, but if you want a thin consistency of your batter, you can use a blender or hand mixer.
  3. In a small bowl mix your flour, salt, and baking soda.
  4. Add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients and mix well.
  5. In a bread pan drizzle a little vegetable oil on the surface prevent from sticking.
  6. Bake bread in oven for 45-50 minutes, checking after the first 30 minutes and then every 10 minutes after that until a sharp knife or tooth pick comes out of the bread without any wet mixture on it.
  7. When bread is done, take out and cool. 
  8. Slice and eat alone or add pumpkin butter, regular butter, or even cream cheese (vegan of course). 
I brought this bread to my office and it was a hit among most people. One of my coworkers couldn't stop eating it while some really didn't believe me when I said they're healthy.

In any case, this is a great way to use up your bananas that you have sitting on your counter! Especially if you have an urge to bake at 11pm.

  1. Well, when I saw "dairy free" and "vegan", I thought Great. But alas, it has eggs, so it's not vegan, and I consider eggs as a dairy item, personally. I will try it with egg replacement.
    Can I leave out the coconut sugar, cause I don't have any, and there is honey as a sweetener?

    1. Hi B Bop. So sorry for not replying. You can use applesauce, mashed banana, or peanut butter to replace the egg.

    2. eggs are not dairy, they are poultry. they are also not vegan

  2. What type of all purpose flour did you use?


  4. I have a tree nut allergy could you substitute regular sugar for the coconut sugar ?

  5. Can you use coconut oil in place of the vegetable oil?

  6. I tried this today but it didn't rise in the oven :/ Tastes amazing, but I cooked it for double the amount of time and was still doughy in the middle. Any ideas on why it didn't rise?

  7. Just made this and it is so good Had really ripe bananas this was quick, tasty, and so good right out of the oven! My question is should it be in the fridge? Or can it be on the counter in a container?

  8. My kids and I made this last night. We omitted the coconut sugar, since we're out, but kept the rest of the recipe as-is. It rose beautifully and the texture was fabulous. I was going to share a photo on FB with a link back here, but my boys dug into it so quickly that I didn't get the chance! They smothered the leftovers with peanut butter for breakfast this morning. :)
