Simple and Healthy Gluten Free Banana Bread Recipe

Banana Bread is probably one of the most beginner friendly healthy baking recipes to try. And guess what, it doesn't have to be a boring recipe!


Personally I hate eating bananas but love them in smoothies and in bread. Does that make me strange? I always buy a surplus of bananas because my family loves to eat them, but sometimes they become over ripe before anyone has a chance to eat them. Making banana bread is a good way to salvage them so you don't have to waste them. Here I want to share with you my famous gluten free banana oat blueberry bread recipe. You can substitute regular white flour, but using oat flour makes it healthier and gluten free as regular flour had gluten. Check out my post HERE about how to make your own oat flour. However if you don't have the time or patience to make your own, you can simply buy  in stores or even oat flour online.



Equipment you will need

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 - 2 cups oat flour
