One of my favourite recipes…

To keep you busy until you’re able to visit me in the Teaching Kitchen,
try this gluten-free / dairy-free, Paleo, and/or AIP recipe that is part of my weekly repertoire.

GF / DF Banana Bread

A recipe that is so simple, it’s almost not a recipe.  (PLUS, it gives you a use for those banana you bought and forgot about!)


  • 3 ripe bananas (read: browning / already black)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • juice of 1 lemon


  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 2/3 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder

** Double-check that the dough is cooked through by inserting a skewer (wooden or metal) into the thickest part of the loaf.  If it comes out with no remnants of wet dough along it, you know that your loaf is cooked.

  • Preheat the oven to 350*F.
  • Combine all dry ingredients into a mixing bowl.  Combine all wet ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  • Pour dry mixture into wet mixture and stir until the dry mixture is no longer visible.
  • Divide the batter between two cake moulds.
  • Bake 20 minues at 350*F.  Remove from the moulds immediately and let cool on a rack.
