Thank you for this recipe! My mother and I are both gluten intolerant and I have 2 friends that have Celiac - I'm very excited to share this with them! Now I just need to go to the store for some bananas ;)

My daughter and I made this as an after school project today. It was easy and delicious! It's just us, so I cut it in half and brought the other half to my neighbor!

I made this yesterday and there is only one small piece left! No one in my family needs food to be gluten free, but I liked that the recipe used apple sauce and olive oil instead of a stick of butter. As someone who has not had great success with baking in the past, I was very excited that this bread turned out SO well! The texture was just right and it was so flavorful, especially with chocolate chips (even if they sank to the bottom). I used Bob's Red Mill gluten free flour, so I'll give it a vote of confidence. I also used a light flavored olive oil since that's what I have. And I guess my third "note" is that I live in Colorado and I didn't make any adjustments for the altitude.

@TXEdie Using OVERripe--but not rotten--bananas will give the banana bread a much darker color AND more banana flavor.

@Barbara Thank you for your question. The reason the post is vague about which Gluten-free flour to use is thankfully because there are many options. Many Whole Foods Markets carry the Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Flour as well as the King Arthur Gluten-Free Flour. If a flour is Gluten-free, more often than not, that will be advertised on the packaging. However, if you'd like to discuss your options for Gluten-free Flour at your community Whole Foods Market, I encourage you to reach out to them directly. A Team Member there will be happy to share all the options with you. The link below will help identify the contact information for your store. Happy baking! http://wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/

Thanks so much for this recipe ... I just made this - and it was really wonderful - I doubled the recipe - used 2 sticks of butter (instead of olive oil) - 3 eggs (instead of 1 plus 2 egg whites) - and added pecans ... and the recipe still turned out great. I used a handmixer to mash the bananas. Thanks again.

Love your blog!!!! I have been trying so hard to make gluten &amp; dairy free recipes for 19 month old and it is limited. I came up with a lunch dinner recipe maybe you might like or see if it works for others. PS i tried your green juice and we love it! Thank you. Ok so I put a pot of water about 6 cups to boil. 1 1/2 Brown rice, 1 1/2 cups of mixed veggies (usually broccoli,cauliflower and carrots), 1 cup of sliced into tiny cubes of chicken breast 1 tsp of sea salt and margarine Add all ingredients and boil. ( I put in 7 cups of water because brown rice takes a long time to get tender)en all the water is evaporated I mix and then serve. It's goes for a couple days of food so I place the rest in tupperware. Enjoy! or write your comment

I make my daughter gluten free pancakes from the "Red Mill" package but I only use chocolate or vanilla soy milk to mix. Then I buy the pear and blueberry baby purees just as a sauce and she gobbles it up. I also buy the "Annies gluten free cookies" and mix a little soy milk and add craisins, little apple bits, and little bits of peaches. Then I mix the mushy stuff together and make little loaf. I put it in the fridge in a tupperware and serve as cookie crumbly treat. Maybe for the holidays a cranberry gluten free bread yummy!!! I'll try it and see what happens....

@Donna There should be GF bread available at your community Whole Foods Market. Also, we have a recipe index for GF dishes. I've copied the link below. http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/search-results.php?specialDietTypeId=1

My son has gluten issues and we have had to change the way we prepare foods. We are also incorporating a gluten free nutrition plan into our fitness business. This looks like a great recipe that we are going to try!! Thank you for posting it! Have a great day!

Yum! Just made this bread with the Bob's GF mix and half the sugar (just the light brown sugar), and it is delicious!

LandOlakes has an excellent whole grain gluten free all purpose flour recipe. I LOVE it!! I am a GF mom of two boys ages 2 and 4. I hope this helps. You can buy the flours then mix up your own, which is way way cheaper!

Hey everyone, I was recently diagnosed as gluten intolerant and want to start baking again. I would like to make my own mixes for breads and cookies ect, does anyone have any ideas. Everything is so expensive and I'm just a college kid. I've tried a few pre-packaged mixes in my bread maker and am really discouraged. I don't know any people that are gluten intolerant so any help would be AMAZING!

Can you use Agave or Stevia instead of the two sugars above? I would love to try this but am worried about the sugar content

@KAY - I was able to get in touch with Christine for her opinion on replacing the sugars. She thought it would be better to substitute with the Stevia option as the consistency would mimic that of the other sugars in the recipe as opposed to the liquid agave. Let us know how it turns out!

My son and I made the Gluten-free Banana Bread for the first time last night. Not only was it GOOD, it was FUN! I had never made bread of any sort before and although it took a lot of ingredients, I found that even my Husband and I LOVED it! It is nice to find something that the whole family can eat, so the GLUTEN FREE Child doesn't always feel left out and alone in regards to food choices. I will be using this site again and I think we will try to make our own WHITE BREAD this time. Now I am not SCARED, I am HAPPY and EXCITED! THANK YOU! Seeing my son enjoy EVERY BITE of his Banana Bread was a real TREAT for us! :-)

Yum. We are going through bananas at a huge rate as I make a similar recipe, but use almond flour instead of GF flour. I like coconut oil instead of olive oil, for the flavor and date sugar instead of brown/white. My one tip is to have bananas at room temp. This makes them easier to whiz up in the processor and starts the batter on the right foot. Good luck!
