We love this Gluten Free Pumpkin Banana Bread as a delicious sweet treat that doesn’t hurt our diets. This time of year pumpkin is everywhere, and I especially love breads and muffins. Since gluten is a real issue, substituting a mix of almond flour and coconut flour into this recipe is a must. I am also trying to cut out extra sugar, so instead of going for traditional sweeteners, this recipe includes fruit and a bit of molasses which is a healthier option for those with blood sugar issues.
Gluten Free Pumpkin Banana Bread
Since this gluten free pumpkin banana bread uses ripe bananas, I find that using my hand mixture to get them well incorporated works best. Mixing by hand tends to end up with a few too many lumps for my taste since the banana may need a bit more work to blend in with the pumpkin, egg and coconut milk.
This is a very moist cake, but delicious and a great choice for breakfast, snacks or even dessert!

This gluten free pumpkin banana bread is fairly easy to throw together and is seriously delicious. While this recipe has no oil in it, the pumpkin puree and banana make this super moist. The addition of molasses sweetness it nicely without having the addition of refined sugars which many find to be unpleasant or detrimental to their health. Adding just a bit of rolled oats provides a bit of texture that is needed, and helps to bring this recipe together to create a delicious fall friendly bread everyone will love. We hope you enjoy this gluten free treat for fall.
