Healthy no-fuss Banana Bread

My kids love when they come home to the smell of banana bread in the kitchen. This loaf was gone in a day!

Banana bread is one of my favorite comfort foods in the fall. But, finding a gluten free, sugar free* recipe was next to impossible (or was just WAY too complicated). So, I found a few recipes I liked and adapted them to what I wanted. And, the result? A super easy, fuss-free banana bread that doesn’t taste like you’re missing A THING.

*the gluten free baking flour I use has a small amount of sugar in it. But, it’s so minimal I don’t mind.


3 ripe bananas

1/3 cup melted butter (or substitute with 1/3 cup coconut oil)

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1/2 cup Agave (or 1/2 cup pure maple syrup)

1 egg, beaten

1 tsp vanilla

2 tsp cinnamon (more if desired)

1 1/2 cups gluten free flour baking mix (I use the Aldi gluten free pancake mix)


Preheat oven to 350 and prepare a 4×8 loaf pan with nonstick spray or butter.

  1. In a large bowl, mash the bananas until almost smooth, but still a bit lumpy. Stir in melted butter.
  2. Mix in baking soda and salt.
  3. Add Agave, egg, vanilla and cinnamon. Stir in the flour and mix until combined.
  4. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake 50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  5. Allow bread to cool and serve!
