Gluten Free Banana Bread with Toasted Walnuts and Cinnamon

The best banana bread you'll ever make! This exceptionally moist and delicious banana bread is full of toasted nuts with the wonderful flavor of cinnamon. It's a welcome addition to any morning. It makes great muffins too. [Gluten Free]

Ingredients

  • 3 bananas, ripe
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 Eggland's Best egg
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon (+ extra for topping)
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose gluten free flour
  • 1 1/4 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup walnuts (+ extra for topping), toasted
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mash bananas and add vanilla, egg, coconut oil, coconut sugar, brown sugar, syrup, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and milk. Stir until blended.
  3. Add almond flour, all purpose gluten free flour, and oats to the banana mixture. Stir until wet and dry ingredients are combined. Be careful not to over mix.
  4. Fold in walnuts.
  5. Pour into a loaf pan, top with walnuts and cinnamon and bake for about 1 hour or until golden brown and until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  6. Allow to cool completely before cutting.

It’s amazing as is, but for a yummy twist, try adding, coconut or chocolate chips. Maybe a different type of nut. And if you’re like me, a little extra cinnamon never hurts.

This recipe also works great as muffins and mini loaves.

MEAL PREP TIP: Make an extra loaf, slice and freeze in a freezer-safe zip top plastic bag or container. Pop frozen bread slices in the microwave for a few seconds and you’ll have a quick breakfast or snack ready for when you’re on the go.

  1. I love banana and walnuts together. Such a classic combination

  2. I love banana bread. This recipe sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing.

  3. We LOVE making banana bread in my house, so we can always use new ways of making this. Your banana bread looks so tender and moist, and I love that it is gluten free! My husband is allergic to walnuts so I’d probably just leave those out and keep the rest – looks fantastic!

  4. Yum, looking at those photos makes me want to try a slice of that bread! Looks absolutely delicious!

  5. I’m constantly looking for how to use up my bananas because they ripe too quickly. This recipe looks yummy.

  6. This looks so delicious.Me and my friend were thinking to make it with strawberries….Do you think this very same recipe could work out with strawberries?

  7. Can I use all gluten free flour? I don’t have an almond flour. Thanks!

  9. Lisa Simpson says:

    I just made this and it is very good! I do have a question…why so much Baking Powder? 3 1/2 T sounded like a lot but I did put it in. I can tell there is that much in there. If I would cut back would I get the same results? Thanks for sharing the recipe! I have noticed that a lot of gluten free recipes always call for a good amount of Baking Powder.

    1. Oh no! That’s a typo. The recipe calls for 3 teaspoons of baking powder. My apologies.

      1. Lisa Simpson says:

        No Problems….I will have to try it again with the proper amount!! Thanks!
