This Breakfast Loaf has been sitting in my drafts since March. Quick to put together, with warm spices, Oat, rice, amaranth and almond flours, and a great snack as well. Add more nuts, other nuts and seeds, add cooked quinoa to the batter. Slice these up and carry everywhere. This loaf is gluten-free and refined sugar free. It can be easily made with gluten as well with any whole grain flour. For a regular wheat based banana bread, see this One Bowl Banana Apple Bread Loaf.For GF muffins see these gluten-free Banana chocolate chunk muffins.

Walnuts are a great source of fatty acids, they help lower bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol, vit E and B complex groups, manganese, copper, iron, potassium and have anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Bananas of course are a pretty much over all awesome food. The sweetness eliminates the need for added sugars, the bulk eliminates the need for oil, all the potassium,fiberand B6 and thisis one packed loaf.

Make this Gluten-free Banana Walnut Bread!

Why do I make smaller loafs you ask. Hubbs is allergic to Banana, and there is only so much snacking I can do. I prefer savory breakfast and snacks. The recipe can be doubled easily.

And someone please keep bugging me till I make gluten-free flour mix recipes for breads, cakes and bakes, so the recipe can say use a cup of my gf flour blend. 🙂

One of the rare sunny days from March. It is partly cloudy today. If you see me disappear from the blog this Summer, you will know it is Sunny that day 😉



All baked and ready and the house smells amazing!

Ingredients

Wet

  • 2 ripe medium Bananas
  • 1 Tbsp oil optional
  • ¼ cup (61 ml) non dairy milk
  • 2-3 Tbsp (2 - 3 Tbsp) maple syrup depends on the ripeness of the banana
  • tsp (0.13 tsp) salt
  • ½ tsp (0.5 tsp) vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Dry

  • ½ cup (60 g) Oat flour certified gluten-free
  • ¼ cup (28 g) almond flour
  • ¼ cup (40 g) white rice flour
  • ¼ cup (30 g) amaranth flour or sorghum or millet or use half flour and half starch for lighter loaf.
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot starch
  • ½ tsp (0.5 tsp) baking powder
  • ¼ tsp (0.25 tsp) baking soda
  • ½ tsp (0.5 tsp) cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp (0.25 tsp) cloves
  • ¼ tsp (0.25 tsp) ginger
  • cup (39 g) chopped walnuts

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 365 degrees F / 180ºc.

  • Mash the bananas well. then mix in all the wet ingredients.

  • In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients. Add to the wet and mix to combine.

  • Fold in the walnuts. Drop the batter in a greased pan.

  • Even it out and bake for 40 minutes.Check with a toothpick from the center. it should come out almost clean. Bake longer if needed.

  • I used very ripe bananas. Use stevia/sugar to preference if the bananas are not sweet enough for the loaf. Or if the loaf is already baked and not sweet enough, serve warm with light maple drizzle.

Notes

For variations: Add sunflower/hemp/other seeds to make nut-free(Use oat flour to sub almond flour). Add a ¼ cup cooked quinoa to the batter. Change up the spices.

For a with gluten version, use 1 ¼ cup flour (Spelt, white etc) instead of the oat, rice, almond, amaranth flour combination. Mix in with the baking powder,soda, spices and cornstarch. Add 1 cup of dry flour mix to the wet, then add more if needed and bake.

    Could I substitute the rice flour and amaranth/ sorghum/ millet flour with buckwheat flour or more almond or oat flour?

      sure – use just almond flour and oat flour for the total flour plus atleast 1/4 cup starch

    Hi
    I tried this recipe with just oats flour about 220 gms omitted the non dairy milk and added 1/4th cup oil and a lot of nuts and seeds and baked it for 45 mins.. It turned out very dry.
    Could you recommend what I could have done to make it moist.

      Oats are very drying. So you do need a combination of flour when making gluten-free loaf. Moist flours like almond help
