Gluten-Free Banana Bread Recipe


Bananas in our house don’t often last long enough to become overripe, but when they do, we sure do love a good loaf of banana bread! This is our favorite gluten-free banana bread recipe – and one of our favorite gluten-free recipes in general!

When I first started baking gluten-free, it seemed like I couldn’t make a quick bread without it either being too tender to handle or falling in the middle. I often would resort to using spelt flour as in this homemade spelt bread recipe.

 I’m happy to say, though, that with a few recipe adjustments, that problem was eventually overcome. As you can see in the pictures, this bread has neither of those problems. It rose beautifully in the oven, and is firm but not dry. Totally a win!

Making food that tastes good but is inexpensive is very important to me, and this recipe, which uses a simple rice flour mix, successfully satisfies both of these needs.

  1. I think there might be a typo on this…I baked my banana bread for 30 minutes and it was definitely not done. It took 70 minutes to test done with a toothpick. Thanks for the recipe!

      1. Mine took 75 min. to bake as well. I checked it at 35 min. and it was still jiggly. Did you use smaller pans to get it done in 30 min? I put all the batter in one regular sized bread pan. My kids liked it though and it’s the first gluten free banana bread that we were able to eat the whole loaf of 🙂
