Gluten-free Banana Bread Recipe

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

One of my fondest memories growing up was my mom’s delicious banana bread. Man. It was wonderful. Here is a gluten-free recipe for you to try.

  • vegetable oil spray for misting the loaf pan
  • Rice flour, or Gluten-free Bisquick for dusting the pan
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups Gluten-free Bisquick
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium-sized)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mist a 9 X 5 inch loaf pan with vegetable oil spray and dust with rice flour.

Place the oil, brown sugar, eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla in a medium-size bowl and beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined. About 45 seconds.

Place the Bisquick and cinnamon in a small mixing bowl and stir to combine.

Place a third of the dry ingredients in the bowl with the egg mixture and beat on low speed until just combined.

Add 1/2 cup of the mashed bananas and beat until combined.

Add another third of the dry ingredients and beat, then add the remaining 1/2 cup of bananas, followed by the remaining dry ingredients and beat to combine.

Spoon the batter into the prepared loaf pan.

Bake until lightly golden brown, 40-45 minutes.

Transfer to a wire rack and let cool for about an hour before slicing.
