Here is an easy recipe for Gluten-Free/Dairy-Free Banana bread that I tweaked from Pinterest (I added my own ingredients as a substitute!) I was nervous about doing this at first, but it came out perfect! It does NOT need to rise before being put into the oven (the baking soda in the recipe will help this as it heats up)
-1 cup Bananas
-2 eggs (room temperature)
-2/3 cup Almond Milk (or any non-dairy milk of your choice)
-1/3 cup Coconut Oil
-2 Cups Gluten-Free Flour (if your Gluten-Free flour doesn’t have Xanthan Gum in it, then add 3/4 tsp of Xanthan Gum to this recipe)
-1/2 cup of Cane Sugar
-1/2 tsp Sea Salt
-1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
-1 tsp Baking Powder
Add 1/2 cup of your preferred nut to make the banana bread nutty!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix together your sugar, baking powder, baking soda, Gluten-Free Flour, Sea Salt, nuts (optional), and Xanthan Gum (add this only if your flour does not include this ingredient) together in one bowl.
Get out a second bowl. Add your eggs, vanilla extract, coconut oil, non-dairy milk, and mashed bananas into this bowl. make sure to mix the ingredients together well.
Now, mix both bowls of ingredients in the same bowl together.
Once your ingredients are all mixed together, pre-grease a bread loaf pan and fill it with the batter.
Put the bread loaf in the oven for 45-55 minutes (this depends on the oven, mine took 45 minutes to bake) Check it with a toothpick to be sure it is fully cooked.
Once your banana bread is cooked, take it out of the oven and place it where it can cool down for 15 minutes.
Cut, eat, and enjoy! Be sure to wrap it tightly once you are done to help keep it fresh for a couple of days. Feel free to freeze whatever you do not use!
