Gluten free, vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

  Banana bread is a easy simple bread to put together. It takes 15 minutes to put this together and as yummy as it is. its not long before its all gone.

Easy homemade Banana bread is not only the best way to use up over-ripe bananas, but it’s possibly the best slice to go with your morning coffee or tea . This banana bread is fluffy and moist and smells amazing while baking! Every bite is deliciously devine !!

Gluten free flours are tricky to work with , but I am in love with gfJules All Purpose Gluten Free Flour. It is a joy to work with , and the bread has the same airy quality as the  wheat all purpose flour bread .  The chocolate chips also add the the moistness of the bread .Chocolate chips or walnuts its your choice , I altenate between the two in my kitchen .

A pro tip is to freeze overripe bananas in the peel to use in recipes like this for an even stronger banana flavor and easy mashing . Let it thaw at room temperature before using .
