I was inspired to make this Gluten-Free Banana Bread because it’s one of my granddaughter’s favorite snacks and I can’t believe that I haven’t made it for her before now! Last week I had purchased a large bunch of banana’s because the kids were coming over (all 7) and when that happens you need to stock up on multiples of each item. Otherwise, you are going to hear someone say – I didn’t get one – and when that happens, there goes your fun time, right out the window! Really that can happen around here, well, sometimes. Anyway, I always try to stay stocked up on their favorite snacks of choice.

Midweek Autumn came over after school and we still had some bananas left from the weekend before and they were starting to turn that healthy ripe brown color. I personally like my bananas under ripe and she loves them when they turn brown so I usually save those for her to eat. While standing in the kitchen she noticed them and asked me if I’ve ever made Gluten-Free Banana Bread, and of course I told her that I had and she proceeded to tell me it was one of her favorites (some Grammie I am, I didn’t even know that). So we dug out the loaf pan and created this deliciously moist Gluten-Free Banana Bread together! You can’t get any better than that! I love it when my grandchildren want to cook and bake with me, it really warms my heart and soul.

This Gluten-Free Banana Bread is a show stopper around here! Everyone loved it and we’ve put this on our re-make list for the holidays. It will make a great gift to give to the teachers, coaches, family and friends, and anyone else you have on your list! It’s wonderful heated up with a little butter and cream cheese (my favorite way) or butter each side and heat it in a pan on each side for 3 minutes and you’ll get a slice of Gluten-Free Banana Bread with a slightly crunchy outside and a moist center. Autumn and I could eat this at every meal! Next we are off to create some delicious Pumpkin Bread, another of her favorites. Enjoy!

From my kitchen to yours,

  1. To be honest the recipe looks great but we don’t like banana bread here in our home… but I think I might make it for some gift giving this holiday season.. Thank you!

  2. I am not sensitive to gluten, but I am having my entire family over for Thanksgiving and having Gluten-Free options is important. I do a few different items and I label with a G/F so they can be easily identified. I will be making this bread.

  3. Oh this looks so good! I have not tried to make a gluten free banana bread since I was diagnosed over 10 years ago. I have to give this a try! I really miss banana bread!

  4. I have to pass this along to my sister to make for my nephew. It looks terrific and she will enjoy receiving this recipe. Thank You!
