Bakery Style Banana Bread (Gluten Free & Refined Sugar Free)

  • Author: Maria
  • Total Time: 60 minutes
  • Yield: 1 loaf / 10-12 slices 1x


This bakery style banana bread is moist, perfectly sweet, full of banana flavor, and easy to make!


  • 2 1/2 cups gluten free flour
  • 1 1/4 cups finely mashed ripe bananas (about 3 bananas)
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/3 cup greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup nonfat milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 yellow banana for decorating (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F and spray a 9×5 loaf pan. If necessary, line with parchment. Allow the parchment paper to hang over the two long sides, so it’s easier to lift once baked.
  2. Mash your ripe bananas (see notes above on how to ripen yellow or green bananas), and measure 1 1/4 cups. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the softened butter and sugar. Once smooth, add eggs, mashed bananas, milk, greek yogurt, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix until well combined and smooth.
  4. Fold in gluten free flour.
  5. Pour the batter into prepped loaf pan.
  6. Optional: peel and slice your extra yellow banana lengthwise. Place each half facing upward on top of the batter.
  7. Bake for 40 – 45 minutes. The bread is ready when the top is golden and puffed up, and a toothpick comes out clean with a few moist crumbs.
  8. Allow the bread to completely cool before slicing.


To ripen bananas fast – lay bananas on a lined baking sheet and bake at 300 F for 15 minutes. Let them cool, then peel and mash.
