Buckwheat Banana Bread

I know I just posted a banana bread recipe last month, but I’ve got another one to share.  What can I say, I buy a lot of bananas, and a lot of them ripen before we can eat them!  (Great excuse to bake with bananas, right?)


What do you do with your over-ripe bananas?  Do you freeze them, put them in smoothies, make banana bread, toss them?  You can usually find me whipping up banana bread or freezing them for future smoothies.  Baking with bananas is one of my favorite things, simply because the bananas add enough sweetness that I don’t need additional sugar or sweetener.


This Buckwheat Banana Bread recipe is moist, easy to make, gluten-free, nut-free and only sweetened with bananas.  It holds together well, making it a great vehicle for a heaping spoonful of nut butter, a drizzle of yogurt, cream cheese and would even go well topped with avocado and an egg.

    • You can try substituting the arrowroot for more buckwheat flour but I cannot guarantee that it will come out the same. Arrowroot helps with the texture of the bread. If you do try then let me know how it goes 🙂


      • Gotcha, makes sense – thank you for getting back to me! Will do 🙂
