This gluten-free banana walnut bread is made using gluten-free oats and coconut ground into flour. The addition of yogurt and butter makes a perfectly moist banana walnut bread that is so damn delicious!
The healthy banana walnut bread is naturally sweetened with whole ripe bananas and contains a small amount of additional coconut sugar. To make this banana bread with walnuts even healthier, you can skip the coconut sugar for sugar-free banana bread that is low-carb.
Walnuts add the perfect crunch and provide additional nutritional benefits such as anti-inflammatory omega 3 fats.

How to make banana bread
Melt butter and combine with the wet ingredients mixing well.
Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl, then mix with the wet ingredients.
Pour batter into a lightly greased baking pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 40 mins – 1 hour.
Because this healthy banana bread is moist it is best to bake it @350 or lower for an hour. This will help to ensure that the inside cooks all the way through without burning the crust.
If you like a loaf of drier banana bread you can add 1/2 cup of ground oat flour. But I must say a moist buttery banana bread is so tasty!
