Gluten-Free Banana Bread

Posted on: 18/09/2016


Prep time: 15 min

Inactive prep time: 2 hr

Cook time: 1 hr

Yield: 10 to 12 servings

Level: Easy


1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted, plus more for greasing the loaf pan

3/4 cup brown rice flour

1/2 cup tapioca flour

2/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon fine salt

2 large eggs, separated

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

3 very ripe bananas, mashed


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom of a 9- by 5-inch loaf pan with parchment, and butter the bottom and sides.

Whisk together the rice and tapioca flours, 2/3 cup of the sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl.

Whisk together the butter, egg yolks and vanilla in a large bowl. Fold in the mashed bananas.

Whip the egg whites with an electric mixer on medium-high speed in another large bowl until foamy. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar, and continue to beat on medium-high until soft peaks form.

Fold the flour mixture into the banana mixture until just combined (it’s OK if there are some lumps). Stir in 1/3 of the egg whites until combined, then gently fold in the rest. Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan, and bake until the bread is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 55 minutes to 1 hour. Run a knife around the edges, and let cool completely in the pan on a rack. The bread can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
