This Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Banana Quick Bread has become my go-to quick, banana bread recipe! The banana bread is moist, light, and chocolaty, with a hint of banana flavor and extra chocolate chips throughout. So GOOD!

Simplifying with Gluten-Free Ingredients

Today, I focused on baking something super simple. To do this, I used an all-purpose gluten-free flour blend. Sometimes keeping things simple is the way to go, especially when your pantry is getting low on supplies.

Utilizing Ripe Bananas for Flavor

I had ripe bananas that were going to waste, so I used them as flavor and extra sweetener.

Doubling the Chocolate for Extra Deliciousness

However, I wanted this quickbread to be extra delicious, so I used double the chocolate by using pure cocoa powder and chocolate chips. In my home, you can never have enough chocolate snacks.

The Simplicity of Basic Ingredients

What makes this recipe easy is the basic ingredients that probably most gluten-free pantries stock. I used only one flour, bananas, chocolate, eggs, cocoa powder, olive oil, yogurt and a sweeter. Things that I stock at all times.

The best part, the banana loaf, turned out amazing,  moist, chocolaty and light. You will love it!

Key Points About Gluten-Free Quick Bread

What is quick bread?

Quick breads are called”quick” because they have to be baked or cooked immediately after being mixed. The batter was leavened without the use of yeast, for example baking powder or baking soda

What keeps the quick bread moist?

Liquids, sweeteners and fats that are used in the recipe will help keep quick bread moist. The sweeteners keep the bread moist after baking by attracting moistness from the atmosphere.

Why do some quick breads crack on top?

This is caused when the top of the loaf sets before the loaf is finished rising. The loaf tastes the same, but the top surface has a crack. Reduce the oven temperature slightly to avoid this. For me, I prefer the crack, makes the loaf look rustic πŸ™‚

Can you freeze gluten-free quick bread?

Yes, this is the best part. The quick bread freezes beautifully. I often double this recipe for that reason. So, if you have extra bananas double the recipe and freeze a loaf.

How long does gluten-free quick bread keep?

Whether you are making a Dutch Apple Quick Bread or a Gluten-Free Seeded Quick Bread, store it in an airtight container at room temperature. The bread will keep up to three days at room temperature, or five days when refrigerated.
