Raspberry Banana Bread – Gluten Free & Dairy Free!


I’ve been battling crazy allergies the past few days, which makes my eyes super drowsy, but my brain is still in normal mode. Every time I hopped on the computer to check emails or write, my eyes started watering, and I decided to give up on it. Instead, I decided to get creative in the kitchen, and I needed to because I had two bundles of bananas browning on the countertops. I chopped most of them up for the freezer, but put a few aside to make a delicious gluten-free raspberry banana bread! Ohhhhh & it’s decadent!

Last night, I made a cup of lemon tea and enjoyed this banana bread while watching the trainwreck Bachelor finale. If you all watch, can we talk about Peter’s mom for a second? Omg, I’d be mortified if my mom acted like that. If I were Madi, I’d be running for the hills. I know this post is about banana bread, but I had to put this out there 😆

okkk no more Bachelor talk, I promise! Back to the banana bread.

If banana bread isn’t your thing, this recipe works for muffins as well. I’m usually a muffin over bread type of gal because they are easier for on-the-go, but sometimes you just have to go for the loaf! 💜 I have my mom coming over today to help me with some flower stuff, so I’m excited for her to try this recipe out. Raspberries and bananas are two of her favorite things. It’s a surprising combo I didn’t realize I needed in my life.

If you don’t plan on making the recipe gluten-free, you can sub the gluten-free flour for regular all-purpose flour and omit the tapioca flour.

I love that this recipe is so easy and quick to make! You don’t need an electric mixer, only a few mixing bowls.

Not a raspberry fan? Just leave them out, or sub them for chocolate chips or walnuts! 
I mean, how perfect does that look? It was hard waiting on this angel to cool down. I wanted to dive right in! healthy banana bread, gluten free, raspberry, gluten free light banana bread, gluten free breakfast, dessert, dairy free
Preheat oven to 350

In a large mixing bowl, add the all-purpose gluten-free flour (I always use Bob’s Red Mill), tapioca flour, sea salt, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and set aside.

In a separate bowl, add the peel bananas and smash with a fork until it’s lump-free. healthy banana bread, gluten free, raspberry, gluten free light banana bread, gluten free breakfast, dessert, dairy free
You could always use the blender if you wanted a smoother consistency. healthy banana bread, gluten free, raspberry, gluten free light banana bread, gluten free breakfast, dessert, dairy freeAdd the egg, brown sugar, vanilla, and honey to the mashed bananas and mix well. healthy banana bread, gluten free, raspberry, gluten free light banana bread, gluten free breakfast, dessert, dairy free

Add mixture to a greased 9×5 loaf pan. Drizzle honey on top for a sweet glazed texture!

Bake 45-50-minutes, or until your toothpick comes out clean. If the outsides cook faster than the middle, add tinfoil to the sides to prevent burning. healthy banana bread, gluten free, raspberry, gluten free light banana bread, gluten free breakfast, dessert, dairy free
Allow the bread to cool down for an hour before slicing. And enjoy!

It’s moist (sorry for those of you who hate that word) yet fluffy! I can’t wait to have a slice with my eggs for breakfast this morning. Even Kyle, who isn’t a huge fruit for dessert kind of guy, LOVED this bread. He asked me to give it away so he’d stop eating it 😂

    Just wanted to stop by and show some love! I really enjoy reading your blog. I made your raspberry banana bread for a weekend brunch with my neighbor friends and it was a hit! Everything about this recipe was great. It was super easy to make. I love that it didn’t require using a hand mixer and I also loved that I had all the ingredients already in my pantry. The bread came out moist and delish! Thanks for sharing this!

    I agree, bachelor was a TRAIN WRECK! I feel like the fact that Peter did no media rounds today shows how ready ABC was to be done with it!

    I made a chocolate chip banana bread this weekend, so good! I often forget how much I love banana bread! My son won’t eat it in bread form but i’ll put the same stuff in as muffins and he’s a fan!

      TOTALLY! but that’s what I’m here for! haha I think the show realized what a wreck it was and even CH couldn’t save it. Barb is what made the show a huge hit last night.

      Banana bread is so good! I think it’s so funny he won’t eat the bread 😆 but will eat the muffin. Kids are hilarious!

    Hi Taralynn!

    Do you think it would be okay to sub blackberries in this recipe? Also, what about coconut sugar for brown sugar??
    ALSO- are their any good subs for tapioca flour? I’m just checking-in for some future recipes that I am making! I’m super excited to bake this with my daughter <3

    Omg yay! I have bad bananas and was thinking I need to make banana bread… and I have raspberries… good timing! Lol I’m making this today.

    I love either!

    I love nuts in banana bread. Specifically, I’m obsessed with the banana muffin recipe you posted a few years ago with the candied walnuts in the middle and on top. I I that recipe all the time!

    I definitely like cold, light, and usually fruity recipes for spring! I’m done with the hot food for winter lol

      Ohhhh yay! 😊

      Let me know what you think!! Ohhh candied walnuts are my favorite to add. Maybe I’ll do that to the top next time! Those are MY FAVE muffins!!

      I’m right there with you! Bring on the fruity spring recipes!
