Delicious, wholesome and healthy! What more could you want from an easy and fool-proof banana bread recipe that everyone can eat? Using gluten-free oat flour instead of the traditional wheat flour, and dairy-free milk makes this banana bread easier to digest, less allergenic for those of us wheat, gluten and dairy intolerant folks and it’s full of dietary fibre! Plus it tastes so healthy! I made this for my partner for the first time and he closed his eyes on the first bite and said OMG this is awesome!
Make sure your oats are gluten-free if you are wheat or gluten intolerant, and if you are one of the few coeliac people who cannot tolerate GF oats, please use gluten-free plain flour instead. You could also use gluten-free self-raising flour but you would need to omit the baking powder. I have made this recipe before with a mixture of flours- 1 ½ cups of oat flour and half a cup of GF plain flour which was nice too. If you don’t have milk on hand, you could probably add water instead. It’s not overly sweet as it is but you could omit the coconut sugar or honey for an even healthier sugar-free banana bread! You can serve it with butter if you can eat dairy which is to die for, drizzle with almond butter or a sugar-free jam. It’s also just as delicious by itself!
