Ingredients need for moist banana bread

- Chocolate Chips - Save a small handful of choc chips for sprinkling on top. Always check that your chocolate chips are gluten free as some brands may contain gluten.

See the recipe card for quantities.
- Preheat oven to 175°c/340°F/Gas Mark 4. Prepare your baking tin with greaseproof paper. I like to wrap paper over the edges of the tin as it makes it easy to lift the bread out when cooled.
- Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and set aside.
- In a seperate bowl mash the bananas.
- In a separate bowl mix together melted butter, eggs, and vanilla.
- Then add mashed bananas to the wet mixture.
- Add the wet mix to the dry mix and stir until fully combined.
- Add chocolate chips to the batter keeping a small handful aside and mix well.
- Transfer mixture to loaf tin and spread evenly. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the top of your mixture.
- Place the tin in the oven for approximately 60 minutes. Do not open the oven until this time as you don't want the heat to be lost from the oven.
- Check your bread with a skewer and when it comes out almost clean it's ready to be moved to the cooling rack. Leave the bread in the tin until fully cooled.
- Gluten Free Flour – I used a shop bought Gluten free flour blend from Doves Farm Freee from range. Which is a flour blend of Rice, Potato, Tapioca, Maize and Buckwheat flour. I have had reports that others have used other Gluten free self raising flour blends with my recipes that have worked well. I would love to know what flour blends worked for you. So feel free to get in touch by leaving a comment below or you can contact me directly.
- Kitchen Scales - Using digital scales is recommended when baking. I always measure using scales and in grams as baking is a science. When baking gluten free it is essential to weigh out ingredients to get the best results! There is no need to purchase expensive digital scales and you can find them available cheaply online.
- Oven Temperatures - Your oven temperature may be slightly different. As all ovens vary in temperature and the baking time is used as a guide. Some ovens run hotter than others. You could invest in an oven thermometer to be more accurate.
Only 2 ripe bananas are required for this recipe, which I mashed with a fork as I like to leave some little chunks of banana. You can mash the bananas to your preferred consistency if you prefer your bananas to be smooth. Using Gluten free ingredients so is perfect if following a gluten free diet.
To make gluten free banana chocolate cake I used milk chocolate but this also works well with dark chocolate or a combination of both. Always check that the chocolate is gluten free as some chocolate brands may contain gluten.
This recipe will work well with any gluten free self raising flour. I used Doves Freee self raising flour.
The bread can be stored in an airtight container for you to enjoy for up to 3-4 days.
Yes, it sure is! The bread can be frozen and kept in a freezer safe container or alternatively sliced in a freezer bag for up to 3 months for you to take out when you desire.
