Gluten-Free Banana Bread

Easy-to-Make Gluten-Free Banana Bread (That's Also Dairy-Free)

If you're avoiding gluten but crave a slice of home-baked banana bread straight from the oven, here's the perfect recipe. It's easy to make because you don't have to buy or mix unique gluten-free flours together. As long as you have gluten-free rolled oats in your kitchen, this bread is as good as made.

Grinding rolled oats into oat flour not only boosts the nutrition, but adds a delicious, chewy texture that makes it even heartier and more filling than traditional recipes. At 218 calories per slice and offering 4 grams each of fibre and protein, and fewer than 20 grams of sugar, it's just begging to be smeared with peanut butter for tomorrow's breakfast.

No need for soy milk because the water, mashed banana, applesauce, and oil add enough moisture.
