This Moist Banana Bread is gluten-free dairy-free and tastes exactly like your classic banana bread. This loaf is soft, sweet, tasty, and like the title suggests, very moist. Although many gluten-free dairy-free baked goods are hit or miss, I can assure you this banana bread is a hit! Make sure to follow every step the recipe and use the suggested ingredients.


Which gluten-free flour do use for this gluten-free dairy-free banana bread?

I used Bob Red Mill’s Gluten-Free 1:1 Baking Flour and oat flour in this recipe (not sponsored). This is my go-to flour because it seems resemble regular all purpose flour very well.

What makes this moist banana bread “moist”?

Step 5 of the recipe calls for letting the batter rest for 45 minutes. This step allows the flours to absorb moisture and leads to the bread retaining moisture throughout baking. In addition, this recipe calls for oat flour which by default, absorbs more moisture than regular flour which contributes to the moisture levels in the final product.

How do I make oat flour?

Simply add approximately 3/4 cup gluten-free rolled oats to a blender and pulse until the oats break down into particles and resembles flour. Scoop out 1/2 cup of this flour and add to batter. Either save the remaining oat flour for future recipes or add it back to your rolled oats.
