Gluten-Free Banana Bread

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 55 minutes
Yields: 2 loaves



2 cups gluten-free all-purpose baking flour
1 teaspoon aluminum free baking soda
1/4 teaspoon celtic sea salt
4 eggs
4 mashed organic bananas
1 cup lakanto or xylitol (both amazing sugar substitutes for baking)
2 medium apples
½ tablespoon cinnamon
1/3 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts


 Mix all dry ingredients into a bowl: flour, baking soda, salt, and lakanto or xylitol.

 Mash bananas in a separate bowl for wet ingredients. Add eggs, olive oil, and vanilla and whisk.

 Blend two apples (cored) and cinnamon in a blender. Skin on the apple is ok!

 Combine everything together and mix in walnuts.

 Coat loaf pans with organic butter, pour in batter and cook at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. The last 5 minutes I moved the pans to a lower shelf in the oven so the top wouldn’t burn.

Let sit for 10 minutes, slice and serve!
*I have been trying out gluten-free recipes for some time and finally figured out the perfect recipe for me. Not too dry or sweet and tastes like real banana bread. Enjoy!

Love & brussels sprouts,


  1. Hi Brenna,

    I stumbled upon your webiste/blog while doing a search on bone broth. I must say… I am thrilled to have found you!!! Love all the great information you share with us, along with sharing your own story and journey. Add me to your list of fans 🙂

    Quick question: Instead of xylitol or laknato, I prefer to sticking with coconut nectar for my ‘sugar’ sweetener. Any advise on how to use in your baking recipes?

    Thanks so much!

    Blessings and ligt to you~

      Hi Kim,

      Thank you so much! I, too, like to switch up my sweeteners. Coconut sugar or nectar can be substituted 1 to 1 for xylitol or lakanto. 🙂

    Hi Brenna — I’d love to make this recipe. Thanks for sharing it. My question is what size loaf pans did you use? It says the recipe makes two loaves; are these small loaves?
