Classic Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Banana bread is truly how I started experimenting with baking! I just love it so much, and honestly I will never get sick of it!  This recipe is my original, classic gluten free banana bread that I have honestly been making for years! 

Ok, short story time:

Did you know that a big part of how I started my business was selling baked goods in my apartment complex on Thursday mornings? I would work for days to prepare 50+ baked goods and sit in the lobby hoping to sell a few healthy treats to people on their way to work. Even though I basically lost money doing this, I still enjoyed every minute of it. I was getting my brand, my name and passion out there. It was worth it to me! Everyone has to start somewhere and for me, that was it! Eventually, I started sharing my recipes through social media and the blog instead of selling to people in real life. It was for the best, but I always look back on that time with a warm heart. It was a huge turning point for me. I knew nothing and had no idea what would come of all of this. Today, I am grateful to be sharing my recipes are creations with thousands, impacting people's lives and doing what I love. Just writing this post makes me proud. I truly hope you enjoy this recipe, and all the other ones I put out there. Thank you for your ongoing support of Eat Well With Sari. It would not be the same without you. 

And back to the recipe... Here is what you need:

  • Ripe, Spotty Bananas
  • Eggs
  • Unsweetened Apple Sauce
  • Coconut Oil
  • Pure Vanilla Extract
  • Oat Flour 
  • Flaxmeal
  • Coconut Sugar

  • Baking Soda

I love making these into muffins (circle or square, pictured here), big loaves or mini loaves. All the cook times are included below! If you make this creation and share, do not forget to tag me on Instagram @eatwellwithsari - I love seeing all of your creations.
