Recipe Tips

  • This banana bread is mildly sweet. It’s baked with chocolate chips sweetened with stevia and ripe bananas. To make it even healthier, use crushed nuts or blueberries instead. If you would like it sweeter, add 1/2 cup of coconut sugar.
  • This recipe uses gluten-free oat flour. If you can’t find any, you can make it yourself using gluten-free rolled oats and a high-speed blender or food processor.
  • Salted butter in this recipe balances out the sweetness. Kerrygold butter kind has only a touch of salt.
  • Variations. Feel free to add extra spice to your liking: vanilla or cinnamon
  • Bake completely; check with a toothpick. Insert in the center; if it comes out clean, it’s baked.
  • The baking time will depend on the baking pan and the oven.
  • Cool before enjoying, so the bread will hold shape better when slicing.
