Gluten and Sugar Free Banana Bread


Gluten and sugar free banana bread is baked with buckwheat flour and it’s also vegan. All the sweetness of this delicious bread comes from bananas.

I really like banana bread, both eating and baking. Regular banana bread recipes include at least one cup of farin sugar. Bananas are pretty sweet already as they are so sugar free banana bread is still a sweet cake, not a savory bread. Obviously this is also a matter of how use to sugar and sweet flavours are you. You could add like 0,5 dl of maple syrup to the bread batter for extra sweet and still have the banana bread completely guilt free.

I love to eat this banana bread with a generous spread of peanut butter.

  3. Hi .. I’m from Australia and would like to make your banana bread. However we Aussies are not familiar with your measurement “dl” . What does it equate to in cups / grams / mls please ?? Thank you

    1. For some reason there weren’t any cup measurements, I’m sorry for that!
