For our fourth recipe in the series on festive desserts, we bring to you a gluten-free and vegan recipe for an all-time favorite, banana bread. An indulgent treat, yet healthy too!
Banana bread is a cake-like dessert that’s great for tea-time (or anytime you feel like having dessert). Course : Dessert Time : 1 hr Servings : 10 -12 slices Author : Jeeva Anna George
The recipe below is gluten-free and soy-free. It can be made nut-free by avoiding the walnuts. The vegan alternatives are italicized and followed by *.
Rice flour (20 gm)
Sorghum/Jowar flour (140 gm)
Tapioca/corn/potato starch (60 gm)
Xanthan/guar gum or flax seed powder (1 tsp)
Baking powder (2 tsp)
Eggs (2 nos., beaten) or vegan egg replacer*
Butter (125 gm, melted) or oil*
Chocolate chips dark (80 gm)
Vanilla essence (1/2 tsp)
Coconut sugar or raw cane sugar (200 gm)
Bananas (3 ripe robusta)
Walnuts (60 gm, chopped) – optional
Preheat the oven to 180° Celsius and grease a loaf pan.
Sieve the flours and mix in the gum and baking powder.
In a separate bowl, combine the egg, butter, walnuts, chocolate, essence, sugar, and mashed bananas. Mix thoroughly.
Give the dry ingredients a good stir, and then slowly add in the wet mixture while stirring. You can do this either in a stand mixer or a handheld one.
Once the batter is thoroughly mixed, scoop the mixture into the greased pan and bake for 40-50 minutes. Keep checking it to avoid burning the top.
When it has risen and turned golden, pierce with a toothpick to check if it’s done. Once the toothpick comes out clear, wait for 5 minutes and then turn it over onto a cooling rack.
After it has cooled down, slice the banana bread and serve.
