Thankfully, I was quick to realize that banana breads are one of the easiest gluten-free breads to make! Woo-hoo! For months I was on a banana-bread-making spree – and it was a wonderful thing.

  1. This was delicious! I used half buckwheat flour (since I didn't have any brown rice flour) and half an all-purpose gluten-free flour mix, and it was very tasty. Very, very moist. Thank you for the recipe!

  2. I absolutely loved this recipe! I used half of brown rice flour and half of all-purpose GF flour,(I ran out of brown rice flour!) and instead of arrowroot, I used tapioca starch. It still turned out wonderful! Fantastic recipe! Thank you! 🙂

  3. Thank you Olivia! I'm so glad that it turned out well for you and that you enjoyed it! Thanks for letting me know! It's always encouraging to hear updates like this. : )

  6. Great recipe! I love banana bread as well. I didn’t think to put applesauce in it before, even though I use it in my pumpkin bread….but in my banana bread I use greek yogurt. I may have to switch it up just for fun 🙂

    Thanks for joining us at From The Archives Friday!!
