Gluten free banana bread

Gluten free banana bread

This gluten free banana bread is super easy to make and can be amended to suit your diet. So if you are vegan, swap the eggs for soaked chia or psyllium husks.

Today when I made this banana bread, I had only half the rice flour left (yeah good planning), instead I made it the quantity required with gram (chickpea) flour.

Ingredients list

  • 280g rice flour
  • 1 tbsp raw honey / maple syrup / sweet freedom (can replace with Stevia or Xylitol for Candida free)
  • 71g white quinoa (soaked overnight, you can boil if you are pushed for time)
    1 pkt baking powder
    125g Olive oil margarine / olive oil / coconut oil / butter
    2 eggs*

2 very large ripe bananas – mashed (use Sweet potato for candida free)


1 egg = 1 tablespoon of flax meal or chia + 3 tablespoons water
1 egg = 3 tablespoons nut butter
1 egg = 1 teaspoon psyllium seed husk + 1/4 cup water (let it stand for 5 minutes; use = binding and moisture)
