I'm always looking for delicious ways to eat gluten and dairy free, and this flourless banana bread is SO good, and SO easy, I had to share!
In a world where there are so many terrible food choices hiding under extremely misleading labels, it's nice to have an all natural recipe that you can whip up right in the blender! How great is that?
For you moms out there looking for something yummy to give your kids after school, or to put inside the lunchbox, this no-nut banana bread is a great choice!
This recipe originated from chocolatecoveredkatie.com, but I gave it my own tweaks (including less sugar). Any recipe that tastes this good, where you can throw all of the ingredients right in the blender, is a recipe I like!
Here's what to do:
2 1/2 C gluten free oats
3 very ripe medium bananas
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp sea salt
1 Tbl. vinegar
1/3 C coconut oil
1/3 C date syrup (YUM for *date syrup, but if you don't have this you can substitute maple syrup, agave, or honey)
1/2 C **mini chocolate chips (optional)
*I ordered a big container of date syrup from ilovedatelady.com. It's a great measure-for-measure substitute for regular sugar. Although it's sweet, you are receiving a ton of the great benefits of dates!!
**I used vegan, non GMO, and gluten free dark chocolate chips sweetened with stevia made by lilyssweets.com. The taste is excellent and this brand cuts out the added sugar for the win!
Preheat oven to 350 F. Use coconut oil to grease a 9" loaf pan.
Put the oats in blender until powdery. Add the rest of the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips. Blend until smooth. Now stir in chocolate chips, if you wish to add them.
Bake 35 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes in pan. Remove from pan, slice and ENJOY! :)
Please let me know if you try this recipe. I'm waiting until after dinner for my next piece... and I'm planning on popping a yummy slice in my 8 year old's lunchbox tomorrow! I'll let you know if it lasts that long...
