What is your ideal banana eating ripeness? Personally, I am a fan of the 2-5 range.  My friend Brooke loves the 6-7 window.

I am a hopeful banana buyer.  You know how it goes, fresh-faced and full of vigor when I'm grocery shopping.  I am going to cook and prepare all my meals this week!  I'm going to make all my sauces from scratch and create elaborate tasting dishes every day after work.  I won't once stop at Starbucks (I know…) or go for sushi or Indian food. The day I go grocery shopping I cook, even a couple days after, but then I end up working late, I don't pack enough food, or I have a poor sleep and I'm craving caffeine and sugar.  By the end of the week all that beautiful produce I invested in is starting to look sad and neglected.  The giant bunch of bananas is slightly bruised and browning – too far on the chart for my eating enjoyment.

Once you get too far… what do you do with those sad bananas?  Smoothies are great' I like to peel and freeze those bananas for pancakes sometimes, but my personal fave is banana bread.  It's something my mom made often, as she too was a hopeful banana buyer.  We have made a variety of banana breads the past few years, even a savory banana garlic loaf!  We have even gotten creative with a dynamite banana scrambled eggs!!

It can be tricky to find cassava flour so that you can also make this nut-free worlds best gluten-free banana bread, we order ours here.  I suggest you find a good local honey producer, raw honey is the secret weapon in this bad boy!

World's Best Gluten-Free Banana Bread is as good as the old tried and true recipe.  Well, in my opinion, this recipe can't be beaten!

    Would you use the same amount of almond flour in place of cassava flour?

      Hi Ruth! Cassava flour substitutes into recipes 1:1 You may need to blend the almond flour with tapioca, or arrowroot, and I’m not sure the exact measurements for that.

    Can I use tapioca flour instead of cassava flour? What is the difference?

      Tapioca flour likely will give you a different texture, It may work, it may be too soft, I’m not sure as I haven’t tried this recipe with Tapioca.

    Made this today with some variations. I used almond flour. I substituted dried cranberries and walnuts for the chocolate chips. Very moist and tasty. Thank you, Holley!

      I am so glad it worked with the almond flour! It is by far my new favorite banana bread!
