For all the mommas who hate to cook... You'll LOVE this banana bread recipe. It's gluten-free, delicious, and only takes 3 steps. What could be better!?
I actually found this recipe on The Minimalist Baker--a great food blog I love to follow. It was originally just for the loaf of bread but since it's almost Halloween, Brooksie and I broke out our skull baking pan to add a little festive flair. Even though this recipe is easy, it looks like it took a ton of effort. It's all about the pan, people.
He also insisted on wearing his PJ Masks costume while being my sous-chef. I mean--pick your battles, right?
3-Step Banana Bread:
- 3 medium ripe bananas
- 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 3 tbsp. grapeseed or coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup organic cane sugar
- 1/4 cup organic brown sugar
- 2-3 tbsp. honey
- 3.5 tsp. baking powder
- 3/4 tsp. sea salt (or Pink Himalayan salt)
- 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 3/4 cup unsweetened milk
- 1 1/4 cup almond or flaxseed meal
- 1 1/4 cup gluten free flour bread (I used brown rice flour!)
- 1 1/4 cup gluten free oats
- 1 large mixing bowl
- Skull or fun Halloween shaped pan
STEP 1: Mash banana in a large mixing bowl. Add all ingredients except the almond milk, meal, flour, and oats. Whisk to combine. Once mixed, add the almond meal, gluten free flour, and oats. Stir.
STEP 2: Scoop the mixture into the shaped pan.
STEP 3: Bake at 350 F. My oven gets pretty hot--so mine only needed 35 minutes.
How easy is this recipe!? And it's delicious. Serve with almond butter, honey, or just as is.
