Skinny gluten free banana bread (sugar free, vegan, clean eats)

June 27, 2014

It’s fiesta friday again and this time I come bearing another guilt free gluten free treat! I’ve mentioned it before a while ago but I recently found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten and of course, I’m not going to let that stop me from having pastries of sorts! Lately, I have been trying to figure out how I can have a gluten free version of my favorite treats.

Instead of using whole wheat/all purpose flour, I decided to use oats and since I’m trying to go sugar free, I decided to let my ripe bananas do their job and do the sweetening for me (: If your bananas aren’t ripe enough for banana bread, try baking them in the oven at 350F for 15 – 20 minutes and the heat will ripen them right up for you!

  1. Welcome to Fiesta Friday, Cynthia!! What a great treat to bring to our table today!! There are so many people who have sensitivity to gluten today, and it makes me wonder why we have such an explosion of people with that…or has it been around all along, and we’re just now figuring it out? Either way..I’m glad to know that you can still enjoy wonderful delicious foods without gluten…like this banana bread. It’s fabulous! Thank you so much for sharing.. <3

    1. I think a lot of the time we just get confused and aren’t in tuned with our bodies enough to realize when something is wrong because we’re just used to feeling the way we feel!

  2. One of my kids needs sugar n dairy free food…another needs egg n soy free…I am trying to reduce gluten intake too..so this recipe works just nice for our family. Thanks!!!

    1. You need to add 2 tablespoons of ground flax seed for the recipe. The additional 1 tablespoon ground flax + 3 tablespoons water is for a VEGAN egg substitute. You can use an egg instead if you like πŸ™‚
