This Gluten-Free Sunflower Butter Banana Bread could not be more simple to make! You only need one bowl and 3 ingredients to create a delicious and healthy gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free bread that slices well and tastes positively delicious!
As you may have guessed by now, I’m quite fond of ‘flourless’ recipes. Baking with nut and seed butter will never cease to amaze me. And, this bread is no exception. My popular Magic Tahini Bread was the inspiration for this loaf; and while the tahini bread makes a wonderful savory loaf, this sunflower seed butter makes a great healthy treat with a touch of natural sweetness from the bananas!

Tips for making Sunflower Seed Butter Bread:
- I like to make this bread with homemade sunflower seed butter, but store-bought will work as well! Just be certain to note that if you use a sunbutter that has added sugar or salt, the outcome will be slightly different in flavor, but should still be similar in texture. As far as purchasing Sunflower Butter goes, I prefer this one.
- Just not a fan of Sunflower Seed Butter or do not have it on hand? This recipe will work in a pinch with any nut or seed butter of your choice without any adjustments to the original recipe.
- Not a fan of bananas or banana bread? You can replace the mashed banana with applesauce or yogurt without any adjustments. Just try to think about what flavors may complement sunbutter, when you do.
- This is a versatile recipe. You can add in a handful of chocolate chips, walnuts, dried fruit or seeds, or any variety of spices you would like.
- This bread stores well in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
