Wheat Free Banana Bread


I have three kiddos and we go through a lot of bananas. Of course,  there are always some weeks we let a few get a little over ripe.  It’s never really a problem because we love Banana Bread.  Quick cooking oats and oat flour have been a God send at our house to make sure we can continue to enjoy these goodies.  This is a moist delicious bread that is super quick to mix up. Everything gets thrown into one bowl which means less clean up for me! On days I have extra time for baking I throw the batter into a loaf pan.  If we have a morning I’m short on time,  I put the same batter into muffin tins and they make a great breakfast or snack.


  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 3/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 mashed bananas
  • 2 eggs

Mash the bananas with a fork.  Add oil and sugar and stir.  Add the eggs one at a time and mix.  Add vanilla, oats, flour, baking soda, and xanthan gum.  Mix well. Pour into a loaf pan or muffin tins and bake at 350 degrees.  For 1 loaf bake for 1 hour.  Bake muffins for 17-20 minutes.  Makes 1 dozen muffins.
