Banana Nut Bread with Maple Cinnamon Glaze

As many of you know, I am officially launching the NOBREAD Bread series where each week I will be making a new NOBREAD Bread! I’ve listened to your requests, and I’m so excited to create some delicious gluten-free breads based off of your suggestions!! First up is my classic Banana Bread with a little twist! I grew up on Banana NUT bread, but given my sweet tooth I often make my banana breads with chocolate chips instead of nuts. Well it’s time to give the nut some time to shine. With an extra kick of cinnamon, chopped nuts, and coconut oil/sugar used in place of brown sugar and dairy-free butter, this variation of Banana Nut Bread is a total win! Enjoy!


What You Will Need:
2 Cups All-Purpose GLUTEN FREE Flour
¾ Cup Coconut Sugar
3 RIPE Bananas
2 Eggs
¼ tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Soda
4T Coconut Oil
1 Cup chopped nuts (I did 3/4 Walnuts, 1/4 Pecan)


Maple Cinnamon Glaze

2 T Coconut Oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon

What You Will Do:
**This recipe is a variation of our classic gluten-free banana bread, found here!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine gluten-free flour, baking soda, and salt.
In a separate bowl, melt coconut oil and combine with coconut sugar.

Add oil/sugar to the large bowl of dry ingredients and mix.
Mash 3 bananas and whisk two eggs. Combine the two.
Add this combination to the large bowl and mix until smooth.



Now’s the time to add your nuts!
Pour batter into a 9.5 in x 5.5 in. bread pan.

Place in the oven for ~40 minutes, or until the top of your bread is nice and brown. If you stick a toothpick or knife into the bread, it should come out nice and clean! Otherwise, let it cook a bit longer!

Let bread cool for ~10 minutes.

Maple Cinnamon Glaze:

In a heated skillet, add your maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla, and cinnamon. Whisk together.
Once combined, remove from the heat, and whisk in the powdered sugar. Immediately pour onto the loaf, and let it harden.

Slice and serve!
