Happy Wednesday friends! My all time favorite dessert is banana bread. I’ve never made a banana recipe that I didn’t love…chocolate chip, chocolate marble, plain banana, banana nut, anything, I love them all! It’s such a comforting dessert, perfect with a glass of milk, a scoop of ice cream, or a warm hot cocoa.

I also love that banana bread is a great way to use up extra bananas around your house that won’t get eaten before they go bad. For this recipe, you need 2 bananas. I like to use bananas that are about “halfway ripe” for banana bread. I look for bananas that have definite brown spots, but are still predominantly yellow.

This recipe only requires 11 ingredients and one bowl, so it’s great for a busy day/week. It’s also gluten free, dairy free, and sweetened with whole ingredients like bananas, maple syrup, and coconut sugar.

  • Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
  • Baking Powder
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
