Banana Bread

Banana bread from my childhood, but this time it is gluten free. This is a recipe I have totally missed for the last few years and I had been experimenting with numerous gluten free flours, such as sorghum and a starch blend … it was way too crumbly. I much prefer this almond flour mix, with no gums or starches and it is vey bananary and very tasty. Definitely the opposite of a dry crumbly bread. The almond flour used was found at Costco and it is labelled with – certified gluten free.

Banana Bread

Banana bread from my childhood, but this time it is gluten free.


  • 100 g butter room temp
  • 100 g sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 mashed over ripe bananas
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 130 g almond flour
  • 60 g oat flour
  • 30 g cassava flour or sweet white rice flour or tapioca flour
  • 1 tbsp psyllium husk soaked in 1 tbsp water (don't leave this very long because it will go lumpy and will not mix in well)


  • Preheat oven to 180°C (350 F)
  • Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and in a large bowl add the flours, salt and the baking powder.
  • Cream butter and sugar, add eggs, mashed bananas, yoghurt, psyllium, then bicarbonate soda dissolved in boiling milk (add the baking soda to the milk last and quickly mix into the batter)
  • Pour the batter into the loaf pan and add granola, an extra banana or walnuts on top.
  • Bake for 60 – 65 minutes.

    When do you add baking powder? Or do you mix it with the baking soda in boiling milk?

    When does the psyllium go in?
