How to make THE BEST gluten free vegan banana bread?
This banana bread is almost ridiculously easy to make. Here’s how:
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a 9×5 inch loaf pan with non-stick spray or by lining it with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, mash three ripe bananas until they are mostly smooth. Stir in 1/3 cup almond butter, 1/4 cup coconut sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon until everything is well combined.
In a separate mixing bowl, stir together 1 cup almond flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon sea salt. Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet banana mixture until just combined – do not overmix. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool before slicing and serving.
Enjoy this moist, delicious gluten free vegan banana bread as is or topped with nut butter or your favorite fruit spread. It also makes for a great breakfast when toasted and topped with almond butter and sliced bananas.
Note: For a refined sugar-free option, feel free to swap the coconut sugar for maple syrup or your preferred alternative sweetener.

And feel free to add in some mix-ins like chocolate chips or nuts for added flavor and texture.
What’s the best oven temperature for gluten free vegan banana bread?

Can you make gluten free vegan banana bread without bananas?
No, bananas are an essential component of this recipe as they provide moisture and binding – without them, the bread will not hold together well. However, feel free to experiment with different types of fruit (such as applesauce or pumpkin puree) in place of the bananas. Just keep in mind that this may change the texture and flavor of the final product.

Why is my gluten free banana bread rubbery?
This can happen if the bread is overcooked or if there was too much moisture in the batter. Make sure to use ripe bananas and to not overmix the batter, as this can also contribute to a rubbery texture. Also, check on the bread a few minutes before the recommended baking time and go by how it looks and smells rather than strictly following the suggested baking time.
Can I substitute the gluten free flour blend in this recipe?
Yes, you can use any type of gluten free flour blend in this recipe, just make sure it is a 1:1 ratio substitute (meaning it has the same proportions of flours and starches as the blend listed in the recipe).
Why is my banana bread dense and not fluffy?
This can happen if the batter was overmixed, or if not enough leavening agents (such as baking powder and baking soda) were used. Make sure to follow the recipe instructions closely and mix just until the dry ingredients are incorporated into the wet ingredients. Also, check on the bread a few minutes before the recommended baking time and go by how it looks and smells rather than strictly following the suggested baking time.
Can I add mix-ins to this gluten free vegan banana bread?
Yes, feel free to add in your favorite mix-ins such as chocolate chips, nuts, or dried fruit. Just make sure to fold them into the batter gently so as not to overmix. Also, keep in mind that adding mix-ins may change the texture and baking time of the bread. Check on it a few minutes before the recommended baking time and go by how it looks and smells rather than strictly following the suggested baking time.
Can I use plain flour instead of all-purpose flour for banana bread?
No, plain flour and all-purpose flour are not interchangeable as they have different levels of protein (gluten) and will affect the texture and rise of the bread. If you do not need to make this recipe gluten free, feel free to use all-purpose flour instead. However, if you cannot consume gluten, it is best to stick with a gluten free flour blend.
Is it better to use bread flour or all-purpose flour for banana bread?
This really depends on personal preference and the desired texture of the bread. Bread flour has a higher protein (gluten) content, which can result in a denser and chewier texture. All-purpose flour will give a lighter and softer texture. Feel free to experiment with both to see which you prefer. If you cannot consume gluten, it is best to use a 1:1 ratio gluten free flour blend.
