I have a very nice Gluten Free Banana Bread recipe here on cozebakes which is made using only ground almonds. I wanted to make one which used Gluten Free flour and to include dates and walnuts for extra flavour and crunch.
I’ve adapted this great basic banana bread recipe and it’s worked really well. Banana Bread can sometimes can bad press but it’s a great stand by recipe and this one uses no added sugar so it’s a healthier option to bake. Using very ripe bananas adds a natural sweetness which removes the need to add processed sugar to this recipe.
When I hear a recipe has peanut butter in it, I tend to leave it as I feel it might taste too strong. Don’t get me wrong, I get a hankering for peanut butter on toast every now and then but maybe it’s those Reese Bites that have turned me off.
I saw this one on a US site and decided to give it a try as it’s gluten free too and a friend had given me a good few very ripe bananas and I just wanted to try something a bit different. I’m glad to say it was a hit and really nice. It freezes well and is perfect with tea or coffee when you want something just a little bit nice 😉
