Gluten free Banana Bread Recipe

It’s been a hot summer here so I have been avoiding using the oven. I’ve missed baking too much though! This week we decided to go to town with some baking goods as the weather cooled down a little bit. First up, Gluten Free Banana Bread with added Zucchini! My younger son loves his bread and I needed a healthier option while sneaking some veggies in. A friend recently gave me some beautiful large zucchinis from her garden so I have been adding it to different recipes. Now, it was time to add these beauties to my Gluten Free Banana Bread!

I had to search for a new gluten-free flour that I really liked. This one on Amazon was a hit! Warning, it’s a little pricy. You can click on the link to find where to buy it. I enjoyed trying baking with this flour. If you’re not going for gluten free, you can use regular all-purpose flour as well.

Serving size: One Loaf, Many Mouths
