Sometimes developing a gluten free recipes can be a bit of a challenge but I reckon I have aced this Almond banana bread recipe.
There are so many gluten free recipes on the internet but I wanted to come up with something new with nutty flavours. After experimenting with different flour blends I have finally settled on this Almond banana bread recipe.
It has almond flour and my own homemade gluten free flour. This quick bread is moist, spongy and delicious with nutty flavour.
I am not a sweet tooth neither is my husband so you will find less sugar in my recipes. Should you think it’s less for your liking perhaps you can adjust the sugar according to your taste.
