As it is made with almond flour, the consistency is slightly different from that of normal banana bread. It is not fluffy bread; it is denser and takes longer in the oven. But it is 100% worth doing it; it is so good.

With this gluten-free banana bread recipe, we get all the benefits of almonds (affiliate link) and eat a good banana bread without any concern if we have gluten sensitivities or allergies.

Ingredients for your banana bread

  • Almond flour. You can use homemade, store-bought, or almond meal flour. The almond meal is made from almond pulp or sliced almonds (affiliate link); it looks darker in color.
  • Bananas. This is the perfect recipe for you to use all the super ripe bananas. When I have very ripe bananas or freeze them to make smoothies, I make normal banana bread or make this bread without gluten.
  • Ground flax. In vegan cuisine, the ground flaxseed does the same function as the egg; it is the binder. To work, you have to let it soak in water for about 10 minutes before putting it in the mixture.
  • Coconut oil. You can substitute it for another vegetable oil.
  • Sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and vanilla.

This bread takes longer in the oven than a normal bread, it will be ready when the top is completely browned and you touch it and it is firm to the touch.

It is important that you let it cool before cutting and tasting. As the bread cools, it becomes firmer.
