Gluten-Free Nutty Banana Bread

loaf1 loaf2

This is my first time trying a gluten free banana bread, and with great success! Using buckwheat flour and hazelnut meal allows the loaf to be completely gluten free. If you like a strong banana flavour I recommend 3 mashed bananas but if you prefer it mild, two will be perfect! This loaf doesn’t use a lot of sweetener because I believe that bananas are already sweet enough. Hope you enjoy 🙂

1 + ½ cups Buckwheat Flour
