If you like chai tea or chai flavouring and banana bread, then you will love this Gluten Free Chai Spiced Banana Bread! The bread is super moist with a great balance of chai spices and banana flavour. I also love the look of the loaf with the sliced banana on top and the added texture of walnuts. Just talking about it makes me annoyed there isn’t any left!
If you’re wanting to spice up the classic banana bread recipe, this is a simple but tasty option. Perfect for morning or afternoon tea, or anytime really. Oh and if you’re not such a fan of chai spices how about my Gluten Free Mixed Berry Banana Bread?
I will admit this Gluten Free Mixed Berry Banana Bread is one of the healthier options on my blog (apart from my strawberry banana raspberry muffins). I previously shared a recipe for a raspberry and pistachio banana bread, however I decided to replace the recipe and photo on the weekend with this mixed banana bread as I was fresh out of pistachios. In the end, I discovered that I prefer this version of my banana bread and found my daughter Lyla did too!
The recipe is easy to make and the banana bread will last for three-four days if kept in a air tight container. You can serve it fresh, toasted or warmed up with butter or margarine. I personally prefer it fresh in the first two days then warmed up after that. What about your preferences for serving? Leave a comment below.
This week I decided to share my recipe for Gluten Free Bread. Well, if I’m honest it’s my husbands recipe BUT it’s the BEST homemade Gluten Free Bread I’ve ever tasted, so I had to share it with you.
A loaf or two is baked every week in our house and it gets demolished so quickly. Lyla even seems to prefer it over her own “Gluten containing bread”. I’ve tasted a lot of gluten free bread, but there’s just nothing that compares to the taste and texture, especially when consumed as toast. The bread comes out with the perfect crust and fluffy centre. We add chia and poppy seeds to the loaf but you can add your own variety of seeds too.
My passion for baking remains within the “sweets” category, but I’ve enjoyed sharing something a little different this week. Hope you find it useful and remember to get in touch if you bake any of my recipes. I’d love to hear your baking stories!
I decided to bake this Gluten Free Chocolate Cinnamon Bread at the last minute on Sunday. I had every intention of making another chocolate inspired recipe, but realised I was missing an essential cooking utensil at a friend’s house. Do you ever have one of those days in the kitchen? I also attempted one of my old recipes, but somehow managed to make a mess of it!
Thankfully, this recipe saved the day, being both simple to make and tasting delicious. It’s not too rich or extravagant, comes out moist and is perfect for sharing with a cup of tea as your morning or afternoon treat.
In other news, I shared an updated photo of my Linzer Cookies on Instagram Tuesday. Did you see the post or picture? I’ve fallen in love with that photo. That probably sounds odd to some? But it’s been nice (and embarrassing at times) to see how much my food styling and Jesse’s photography skills have improved these past 6-12 months.
