The BEST Banana Bread – Vegan // Gluten Free

October 5, 2013

I wanted to share my The BEST Banana Bread. You’ll notice it is egg and dairy free (a-hem! VEGAN) but I swear that you will not notice the difference.  The two versions of the recipe also avoids using refined sugars and although it recommends whole wheat flour (which is great!) I prefer to use low-gluten or gluten-free flours.  Rice flour may not be the best pick but any alternative flour should do such Kamut, Quinoa, Buckwheat, Chickpea or a combo.

Enjoy!
