Moist Gluten Free Banana Bread is something that can be enjoyed by everyone. I mean Everyone!
I have been wanting to create some recipes using almond flour - just because. Because I love to bake and cook and almond flour taste so good.
To me, the plethora of new ingredients on the shelves in the supermarkets is like opening presents on Christmas morning - like going to Disneyland - like having a vacation in Hawaii.
Yeah, I like it.
So, out came the almond flour. Do you know almond flour can be switched with all-purpose flour as a 1 to 1 equal measure? How easy is that!
I am absolutely going to try substituting almond flour in some of my other favorite recipes. I mean, you can get two recipes from just switching one ingredient.
Not meaning that it falls apart more easily but it is lighter in texture.
In the video, the coconut oil is shown as being solid when it is added to the bowl but I have made it both ways. It can be liquid or solid. The photos here are from when the oil was liquid.
A slice of Moist Gluten-Free Banana Bread holds together very well and can be toasted for an extra taste pleasure.
I believe this is the first and only gluten-free quick bread I have ever made. I need to remedy that because it is so good.
Another quick bread I make is Blueberry Banana Bread and it’s not gluten-free but it is very special to me because it was the first banana bread I ever made. Period.
Not first for my blog but first in my life and it still stands as one of my favorites. Take a peek!
Now this Gluten-Free Banana Bread is another easy bread that I will keep in my recipe box.
You have got to try it even if it isn’t necessary for you to be gluten free.
Leave out the words gluten-free and just call it Miracle Banana Bread and you would be right.

How Do You Mix Chia Seed Egg Substitutes?
- An egg is actually made with chia seed meal/flour, not the bare seed. You can also use flaxseed meal in the same way.
- Lately, I have found ground chia seed in a package. That makes it all so easy but here are the instructions in case you don't find it.
- The way you make chia meal/flour is by grinding the chia seed in a processor such as one for your coffee beans or a spice grinder. I use mine to strictly grind seeds so that I do not mix flavors. Grind until it is a fine meal.
- I do about 4 ounces at a time and keep it in a little freezer safe canning jar - in the freezer.
- When I need a tablespoon or so it is all ready to go.
- So ... one egg equals 1 tablespoon chia meal and 3 tablespoons water. It is 2 'eggs' for this recipe so mix 2 tablespoons chia meal and 6 tablespoons water.
A loaf pan is a necessity. Don't go larger than a 9"x5" or the slices will be very short. So and 8"x4" loaf pan is fine too.
If you go the way of grinding your own chia seeds for your egg substitute a coffee grinder is perfect.
I'm in love with stainless steel for measuring spoons and measuring cups. They last forever. Lots of sizes with this set.
