I believe there will never be too many banana bread recipes.
My personal favorite combo changes from time to time, but over the summer, this recipe has been baking in my kitchen on repeat.
A few things I especially love about this gluten free blueberry banana bread:
This recipe has no added sugar! It is naturally sweetened with banana and juicy blueberries. If you’re looking for a healthy breakfast or snack, a big slice of this banana bread is the perfect solution.
Second, lately I’ve been loving experimenting with cassava flour in my baking. It creates a light texture and earthy flavor, is gluten and nut free—and is delicious in this recipe!
Finally, feel free to customize this recipe! This banana bread is ready for you to add your favorite chopped nuts, swap in a different berry, or toss in a handful of chocolate chips. You won’t go wrong!

I have not tested this recipe with any other brands’ cassava flour or tried substituting different flours so I cannot guarantee results. If you try something different, be sure to comment below and let me know how it works!
