The combination of tapioca and buckwheat flour lends itself to some wonderfully springy and fluffy textures in gluten-free baked goods! It also provides some lovely binding power and slices beautifully, without the use of xanthan gum or the like. It is certainly one of my favorite gluten-free flour mixes, and when it comes to this vegan gluten-free banana bread, it works like a dream!

Tips for making this Healthy Gluten-Free + Vegan Banana Bread:

  • I do not recommend replacing the flours with any other flours. Buckwheat and tapioca flours have unique properties that work well together when combined!

  • The riper the bananas you use, the sweeter the bread.

  • This bread tastes absolutely delicious without any added sugar, but if you like your banana bread on the sweeter side, you can add the optional 2-4 tablespoon of maple syrup.

  • The oil in this recipe can be replaced with melted vegan butter, or if you are not on a dairy-free or vegan diet, regular melted butter.

  • This bread holds together well and slices well without the use of gums, eggs, chia or flax eggs or the like. I do not recommend adding any, and I promise you that it is not necessary!

  • I have encountered some slight variations in the absorbency of buckwheat flours, if you are concerned, you can always add a little more milk if the batter seems too thick.

  • I like this bread with a hefty dose of cinnamon, but a pinch of nutmeg and/or cardamom work beautifully in this bread, too!

  • This bread stores well covered or uncovered at room temperature for 24 hours, or in air tight containers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

    Looks yummy. How many cups will the mashed bananas be as bananas vary in size?
    Thanks!

      Hi! It will be right around 1 1/2 cups but it’s okay if there are some slight variances with this particular recipe. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Quarantined and need a replacement for the buckwheat. Would either almond or cassava flour work?

      I believe cassava would be a suitable replacement! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi . Can we substitute coconut oil with olive oil or any other? Wanted to avoid coconut flavour

      Hi – Yes, most certainly! Any oil or melted butter/vegan spread works well in this recipe.

    Could I use 2 cups of tapicoa flour instead of 1 tapioca and 1 buckwheat?

      Hi Lora – if you did that, it would probably bake alright and taste good, but the texture would be quite a bit different. It would probably be a bit too much on the dense and chewy side. The buckwheat actually helps lighten this loaf up a bit!
