Gluten-Free Banana Bread

Hey y’all!

I LOVE to bake lots of goodies during the holidays. Cookies, cakes, loaves of bread, pastries, lunched, dinners, you name it. Now that I don’t eat gluten, it can be a lot harder to make my favorite holiday recipes. Even using gluten-free flour, sometimes it just doesn’t turn out the way I’d like. That’s why I was SO HAPPY to find this recipe from A Latte Food! It is so yummy, and works beautifully with gluten-free flour! (I use King Arthur All Purpose gluten-free flour). This banana bread turns out so soft and I looove the crumble topping! It’s sweet, easy, and packed with banana yumminess. This is a perfect recipe for when you have no clue what to do with those overly ripe bananas on your countertop, and it only takes about an hour to make!

I switched up a few things from the original recipe to make it gluten-free. I also like to mash the bananas with a fork, so you get a few little banana chunks in the bread, but if you don’t like the pieces, feel free to puree them! I also added oats to the crumble as you can see in the picture above, but feel free to leave them out if you prefer. I love to serve it with butter on top and coffee or hot chocolate. So cozy! Happy baking!

“Brothers and sisters: Rejoice in the Lord always. I shall say it again: rejoice! Your kindness should be known to all. The Lord is near. Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,  make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding  will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” -PHIL 4:4-7
