Grain Free Banana Bread

This recipe for grain free banana bread is light, sweet and rich. It's also fruit-sweetened, GAPS adaptable and Paleo friendly!

I’ve made my fair share of banana bread recipes since going grain and dairy free, and, honestly, none of them have been anywhere close to as good as my grandmother’s old recipe using wheat flour. In fact most of them have been either soggy and dense or dry and bland.

Since winter has me indoors more and in the mood to bake, I decided it was high time to figure out how to make a grain free banana bread as light, sweet and rich as the one Grandma taught me how to make. And so I did…

The secret to good texture in grain free baked goods is choosing the right flour, or more often, the right combination of flours. This recipe uses three different flours to keep the bread from being too soggy, eggy or dense. It is also fruit-sweetened, GAPS adaptable and Paleo friendly!
