The Best Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

The Best Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Happpppy Friday my friends! Today I’m so excited to be sharing the very best gluten free chocolate chip banana bread ever. Seriously guys, I’m not just saying that. This stuff is AMMMMMMMAAAAZZZZING. This is the most delicious banana bread I’ve ever had and it’s super easy to throw together. Everyone in our family absolutely loves it, even my kiddos go crazy for it. None of us are allergic to gluten, but my husband and I do try to eat gluten free when we can–we just feel better overall when we avoid it. But I will say we are super picky about gluten free food. It has to actually taste good for us to eat it more than once. I found this recipe years ago and I’ve adapted it over time, tweaking it here and there until it was perfect for our tastes. I’ve made this over and over and over again, it’s just that good. It’s super moist, sweet but not too sweet and perfect with a cup of hot coffee!

The Best Gluten Free Banana Bread

Ingredients:

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups almond flour (I recommend Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup chocolate chips, depending on how sweet you want it.

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9×5 loaf pan.
  2. Combine the bananas, eggs, vanilla, honey and melted butter. Mix on low for 2-3 minutes.
  3. In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients: almond flour, salt, and baking soda. Once combined, slowly add into wet ingredients until well blended. Once blended pour in chocolate chips.
  4. Bake for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean–sometimes this may take up to 70 minutes or so depending on your elevation. Then let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing.

I absolutely love baking and this is by far one of my favorite recipes. Plus I figure since I’m using almond flour instead of regular flour it’s at least somewhat healthy, right? And that means I can have two slices instead of just one. Maybe even a little smattering of butter on top. I think that sounds reasonable.

Well friends, I hope you give this recipe a try and let me know how you like it! It’s really so easy to throw together. Gluten free or not, I have a good feeling you are going to LOVE it.

Pin for later!

  2. This sounds super yummy! I have some bananas that are just crying to be made into bread. Have you ever tried the recipe with regular flour? Wondering if it would be the same amount.

      I haven’t tried it with regular flour, but I’m sure it would work if you could figure out the conversion. It’s really so good though and you’d never guess it’s GF!

    My pin it for later button didn’t work on my iPhone for some reason, but I guess I will print it out 🙂 I just made my own almond flour yesterday with sliced blanched almonds in my blender and it turned out so good! Used it in a brownie recipe. Almond flour is sooo expensive!

    I MUST HAVE DONE SOMETHING WRONG! I feel as if there’s a missing liquid. It was very crumbly but I put it in the pan and baked it anyway…it was a hot mess! Any ideas about what might have happened? I did use coconut flour instead of almond but can’t imagine that would have made a difference.

      Oh no! I’m sorry. My only guess would be that the coconut flour didn’t jive well with the recipe. I’ve never made it with coconut flour so I’m not sure how that would mix in. This banana bread is always super most when I make it, so I’ve never had that problem before!

    I’ve got this in the oven as we speak and my daiughter abd I can’t wait for it to be ready.

    Had to add some soft brown sugar and milk to the raw mixture as it was flaky and tasted awful (I swopped the flour for a gf dove farm mix) so I can only think that was the reason. Smells delicious cooking tho!

    This sounds delicious and I will definitely try it. Like you, I will opt for gluten-free when possible as long as it tastes good, and I love that this recipe has no added sugar! Thanks, Sarah.

  • Happy Friday!! 🙋‍♀️ I’m talking about one of my favorite things on the blog today: SKINCARE!! You guys, for the first time ever this week I got on stories with NO makeup. Not one drop of foundation or concealer on my face & no filter. I know that may not sound like a big deal to some of you, but as someone who’s seriously struggled with skin issues throughout her entire life, it’s a HUGE step for me. I’ve always felt SO self-conscious of my skin & it’s been a struggle since I was in high school. But my skin has improved so much & I owe that to @tula. I’ve been religiously using their products for close to two years now & I’ve seen major improvements through that time. 🙏🙏 I shared all about their holiday gift kits on the blog today, so hop over there if you want to check it out. They’re offering some amazing kits, so now is a great time to stock up on your favorites & of course they make great gifts too. AND the kind folks at @tula gave me a new coupon code for you guys—you can use SARAHJOY for 20% off your order 🎉🎉 #partner #tula
