Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

  • Whisk gluten-free flour blend, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.

  • Beat butter (or coconut oil) and sugar in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high until well combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add banana, buttermilk, lemon zest and vanilla; beat until combined. Add the flour mixture and beat until just combined. Fold in walnuts (or chocolate chips), if using. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan.

  • Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
