Healthy Gluten-Free Banana Bread

Ingredients

  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1 egg
  • 1tbsp (15ml) of pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) of pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) of melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 (120ml) cup of plain yogurt
  • 1 cup of brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup of corn starch
  • 1tsp of baking powder
  • 1tsp of baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • large handful of chopped walnuts
  • large handful of 70% chocolate chopped (the chocolate is optional but helps add a little sweetness – if you don’t add the chocolate, you may want to increase the maple syrup to 1/2 cup – 120ml).

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C);
  2. Mash the bananas in a large bowl;
  3. Add the egg (1), pure vanilla extract (1tbsp – 15ml), maple syrup (1/4 cup – 60ml), melted coconut oil (1/4 cup – 60ml) and yogurt (1/3 cup – 80ml) and blend together well;
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the brown rice flour (1 cup – g), corn starch (1/2 cup – g), baking powder (1tsp), baking soda (1tsp) and salt. Whisk together to sift and combine;
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and blend together;
  6. Stir in walnuts and chocolate pieces;
  7. Coat a loaf pan with some of the melted coconut oil to prevent sticking;
  8. Pour in the batter and cook until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (about 50 minutes);
  9. Cool and enjoy! – can be frozen to enjoy later.
