Gluten free vegan banana bread is a simple easy recipe that comes out well every time. It is gluten free, vegan, and can be made soy free too. It is perfect for breakfast or a lazy afternoon snack. It fills up the house with a wonderful smell that will get the whole family gathered in the kitchen waiting for it to be done.
Do you have a few old bananas laying around?
Then you can get a loaf in the oven in minutes. It can be made with regular flour or any gluten free flour mix. I have tried it with most of the major brands of gluten free flour and it has come out well every time. If the mix doesn’t have xanthan gum in it already, I usually add a teaspoon to the recipe. This helps it to hold together better. It will be a thick sticky batter when it’s ready.
What if I want vegan banana muffins instead?
These can also be poured into muffin tins and made into muffins by reducing the cooking time a bit. (Banana muffins are a great grab and go breakfast on those busy mornings). My family prefers the bread because they like to slice it and put my homemade vegan butter on it. (You will get the recipe emailed to you when you subscribe). It keeps well for a few days, but it almost never makes it to fully cooling off before my family eat a whole loaf. It is one of those recipes that you may want to double so you have some for the next day.
