Vegan Gluten-Free Banana Bread

I love to bake Vegan Gluten-Free Banana Bread on the weekends, its a childhood tradition that gives me that cozy comfort feeling. My family enjoys it too. I decided to share another version with you that’s different from the one in my cookbook.

How To Make Vegan Gluten-Free Banana Bread?

To make banana bread, combine almond milk, coconut oil, vanilla and ground flaxseeds in a bowl and set aside.

Mashed bananas and set aside. In a large bowl, mix gluten-free flour, almond flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Add almond mix mixture to the flours and mix until batter is well combined and smooth.

Fold in the mashed banana. Scoop batter in a prepared baking pan and bake at 375 degrees F. for 70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, remove from pan and allow to completely cool before slicing. This is the best vegan banana bread recipe.

    I have a question, i see that on a lot of your gluten free recipies you have brown rice flour or alomnd flour and then you use baking powder, but the baking powder that you use is it speacial for gluten free flours??? or does your flour have something else added to is to rise? so is normal baking powder make other flours that are not weat rise anyways??? thanks cheers

      Itzel, all the baking powders I use are gluten-free. There are several brands on the market that are gluten-free basically there are fewer brands that aren’t. Gluten-Free brands are Argo, Clabber Girl, Rumford, Davis, Hain Pure Food Featherweight, Hearth Club, Bakewell Cream. Yes and that’s all you need for it to rise.

    If you don’t have gluten-free flour can you use brown rice flour… or something else?

    I made the banana bread. I call it banana cake because it was soooo very delicious. I tweaked the recipe a bit, half the sugar (because bananas are already sweet), more flax and a few more changes. Very good base recipe and thanks for sharing Michelle.??
