Easiest Wheat Free Banana Bread

Hello my friends!

I hope you are having a wonderful week!  So far things have been great around here…the kids are back to school and are enjoying it so much.  My youngest is off to preschool, and I’m back to a regular blogging schedule which is a relief for me.  Summer was a challenge with trying to keep my blog going while at the same time taking time to enjoy the summer with my kids.  But now that everyone is back to their scheduled activities, I am back at it!  So things are moving along quite swimmingly.  Feeling blessed.

And feeling bake-y.  Is that even a word?  I think not.  But I’ve got my bake on and I’m loving that!  With the kids back at school, I like to be able to send homemade goodies in their lunches…it makes me feel good to do that for them, and I know that they are enjoying it too!  So it’s the perfect excuse to get in the kitchen and get baking!


One of our staple goodies around here is banana bread.  Like it is for many of you I’m sure, banana bread is a family favourite.  So when we decided to try to eat wheat free 80% of the time I had to find a recipe that worked (and this has been a challenge let me tell you…wheat free baking is hard).  You may remember the Wheat Free Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Banana Bread I made previously…while it is delicious, it is a bit more work than this recipe.

This banana bread recipe is very, very simple, and has the taste and texture of regular banana bread. (I actually just tweaked my regular banana bread recipe and it worked!).  Whew.  I can’t even tell you how happy this makes all of us feel!  😉

And if you aren’t concerned about the wheat (you will still enjoy this recipe) I do have divine regular banana bread and muffin recipes for you to try too.



Easiest Wheat Free Banana Bread


  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/3 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup mashed bananas (about 2)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl whisk together the flours, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.
  4. Then beat the flour mix into the butter mix, until it has the consistency of brown sugar.
  5. Beat in the eggs one at a time.
  6. Fold in the mashed banana.
  7. Bake for about 45 – 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the loaf comes out clean.


I hope you enjoy the rest of your week!  Now go make some banana bread!  🙂

    I’m feeling “bake-y” too, my friend. After a long blogging break, I’m back in the kitchen as well. 🙂 The boys are in school, well, Monkey only 3 hours, but he LOVES to bake.

    Keep these wheat and GF coming!

    Also: try my trifecta blend: 1/2 cup sorghum, 1/2 c tapioca, and 1/2 c sweet rice. It’s no fail.

    Enjoy the quiet blogging time,

      Thank you for the flour blend tip! I’m going to try this…I still struggle with the flours. I’m trying to make a zucchini bread with GF flour, and I just can’t seem to make it happen, but I’m going to try it with this blend! This week I’m going to try a pumpkin spice version of your GF donuts too! Yummm

    Last week, I found and made your easy wheat-free banana bread recipe (I added walnuts). I just wanted to say it was the best banana bread I have ever made, wheat-free or not! It was so delicious! I had given up hope that I would ever be able to bake anything this delicious without wheat flour. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
