Emory loves homemade bread. Given her food allergies, homemade bread is the only bread she can eat. When we have bananas on the verge of spoiling, I usually make this quick and easy vegan gluten-free banana bread for her.  This vegan banana bread is very easy to make. It takes roughly 5 minutes to prep and 45 to 50 minutes in the oven. Miss Emory could have eaten this entire loaf herself if we’d let her. Seeing her munching away on something I’d made for her felt so good; knowing that it was safe to consume and a little healthy (because, bananas), we let her eat three little slices as soon as the bread came out of the oven.

This recipe calls for only nine ingredients, and the result is the best moist and fluffy vegan banana bread ever!  Read on for the full recipe!

How to ensure your gluten-free banana bread is moist?

Moisture is key when it comes to banana bread, and the ratio of flour to banana makes all the difference. If you use too much flour, you’ll end up with dry bread. If you don’t use enough, your bread will be too wet. The secret is actually in how you measure the flour.

How do I know if my bananas are ripe enough?

I highly suggest using bananas that have brown skin.  Super ripe bananas that you possibly wouldn’t eat are best.  Not only do they act as the binder in your bread, but they also add sweetness and flavor.

What’s The key to making gluten-free bread that’s not dense?

A good-quality gluten-free all-purpose flour blend made of lighter flours/starches (such as rice flour, tapioca starch, corn starch, or potato starch) ensures a fluffier and lighter final texture. The gluten-free flour we use isn’t anything super fancy, but it does consist of lighter flours, as mentioned above. Here, you can find what I prefer to use for my gluten-free baked goods.
