Gluten Free Buckwheat Banana Bread


My good friend Nancy, a health coach residing in Alexandria, Minnesota, once made this banana bread for me. I immediately asked for the recipe. It’s soooo delicious! The other night, I had a guest at my home, and we decided to bake this banana bread (at eleven p.m. haha!). I was reminded of how great it was, and asked Nancy if I could share the recipe. So, here it is… A glorious, soft, simple, vegan and gluten-free banana bread.


  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup sunflower oil
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup buckwheat flour
  • 3/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 2 Tbsp arrowroot
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt


Preheat oven to 325.

In food processor or blender place the bananas, oil and maple syrup and blend, then pour mix in bowl. If you don’t have a blender, then mash the bananas with a fork and blend in a bowl.

Add the rest of the ingredients to banana mixture and mix well. Place mixture into a greased bread pan and bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick poked into the center comes out clean.

Let cool, then serve and enjoy!
