Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Banana Bread {gluten-free}

My husband and I have a bad habit of buying bananas and letting them go bad before we can eat them. I could be wrong, but I think it might be because we love banana bread so much.

I hope you enjoy this recipe. I found it on Simply Recipe but made a few tweaks to make it gluten-free and a little more unhealthy (and by unhealthy, I mean delicious).

For this recipe, you’ll need a cup-for-cup gluten-free flour blend. I’ve found that baking with one type of gluten-free flour (like rice or almond) doesn’t give you the same result that a blend gives you. You can find several different options at your local grocery store or make one yourself. Make sure that your blend has xanthum gum in it. If it doesn’t, you’ll need to add some to this recipe to hold the bread together.

I use Andrea’s Gluten-Free flour blend. Everything I have made with it has turned out amazing. Gluten eaters don’t even notice a difference. Andrea’s Gluten-Free is a local company, so you might not have this option, but find a blend that you love and you’ll be set!

  • 1/3 cup melted butter
