However, not all gluten-free banana bread is created equal. This rich and moist gluten-free banana bread is made with ripe bananas, yogurt, orange juice and fresh juicy blueberries. And the only flour used in this recipe is the sweet sorghum. Keeping this banana bread extra healthy and flavourful.

The ripe bananas add most of the sweetness, and by adding yogurt and orange juice, the texture is moist and light but at the same time satisfying. I have also added a super seed called chia and heart-healthy olive oil. For added flavour, a splash of delicious vanilla and orange zest.

Did you know that the riper the banana, the higher the antioxidants? Hence the riper the banana, the better the anti-cancer quality as per Health Impact News. The best part, even though the ripe banana is sweeter, the calories remain the same 🙂

Start your day with this healthy gluten-free blueberry banana bread, or enjoy it as a snack when you need a boost of lasting energy. This quick bread recipe is easy to make, and what a great way to use up ripe bananas!
