a carefully crafted blend of gluten-free all-purpose flour, tapioca flour (or cornstarch), almond flour, and flax meal forms the base of the recipe.
this unique combination may sound unconventional, but trust the process—it yields a moist, tender bread with just the right amount of crumb.
the fudge factor:
one of the hallmarks of this recipe is its fudgy texture.
achieving the perfect balance of moisture and density, this bread melts in your mouth with each bite. and the best part?
it’s fully baked through, so you’ll never encounter that raw or undercooked sensation often associated with gluten-free and vegan baked goods.
feel free to get creative with substitutions to suit your dietary preferences or pantry staples.
if you don’t have overripe bananas on hand, pumpkin puree makes an excellent alternative. i don’t know about you, but i definitely have a few cans leftover from the holidays!
likewise, almond butter can replace peanut butter for a different flavor profile.
for those with nut allergies, sunflower seed butter is a fantastic option.
you would also have to replace the almond flour with sunflower seed flour, which i know isn’t very mainstream!
experiment with different types of dairy-free milk, such as almond, soy, or oat, to find your perfect match.
beyond its irresistible taste, vegan and gluten-free peanut butter chocolate banana bread offers nutritional benefits as well.
packed with fiber, protein, and healthy fats from ingredients like almond flour, flax meal, and nut butter, this bread is a satisfying treat that won’t leave you feeling guilty.
plus, the natural sweetness of bananas and coconut sugar provides a delicious alternative to refined sugars.
to prolong the enjoyment of your peanut butter chocolate banana bread, store it in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days.
for longer storage, wrap individual slices tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and freeze for up to a couple of months.
simply thaw slices as needed and enjoy them straight from the freezer or warmed up for an extra special treat.
