Gluten and Dairy Free Coconut/banana bread // stephanieorefice.net

Okay. So on my 101 in 1001 days list (AFTER I POST THIS I AM LINKING IT TO THE FRONT OF MY BLOG I PROMISE), #38 is “perfect a signature gluten-free banana bread recipe.”

Because I LOVE ME SOME BANANA BREAD. I used to buy a piece of banana bread every time I went to Starbucks. Then I discovered that gluten was making me itchy and cranky and tired and headachy. For nearly two years I have been trying to figure out THE BEST gluten free banana bread recipe. I’ve tried like fifteen gazillion recipes. And finally…. I nailed it. I found a recipe and adapted it and it is seriously the most delicious banana bread I’ve ever tasted in my entire life.

FOR THE RECORD. I am not a food blogger.
I will never be a food blogger.
But listen. This gluten and dairy free coconut banana bread is the song of my heart right now. It’s so perfect. If I could somehow frame this banana bread in my room I would because it is just that good.

PLEASE TRY IT! and tell me how you like it.

Recipe adapted from The Baker Chick.

INGREDIENTS
3 medium bananas, mashed

1/2 cup melted coconut oil

2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon coconut extract

1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sweetened, shredded coconut (there’s no real limit to this if you love coconut as much as I do… I just keep pouring until I remember that not everybody loves coconut and wonder if they’d like it with all the coconut I’ve added)
