peanut flour banana bread (Gluten Free)

When a batter tastes like peanut butter cakey heaven.... ya know your on to something.
I couldn't stop licking the spoon / whisk/ bowl/ spatula... to much information??  maybe. But it sure saved time on washing up... ;)
My stash of peanut flour is very, very precious... I can't find Peanut flour anywhere in the UK and don't get me started on shipping costs from the US. My stash is so much of a valuable commodity, I hid it. I hid it from myself and my grubby baking mitts and forgot all about it. In fact, its been left untouched for months. It struck me to finally use it this morning, Whilst working out what four would be best for  a GF banana loaf... so with great pain and a heavy heart, I added the flour to the mix and stirred up a revelation.
Boy oh boy am I glad, I decided to crack open that sack ... I just wish i had done it sooner.
This banana bread is light, fluffy and delicately flavoured. just the right sweetness and a hint of peanut. Perfect with some chocolate PB for afternoon tea. The loaf is high in fibre, low carb and high protein. If you dont have and peanut flour I reckon it would work well with coconut flour too.
 3/4 cup peanut flour
1/4 cup rice flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbs cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs or 1 tsp flaxseed mix
1/4 cup sweetener
1 tbsp Agave or honey (optional)
3 tbsp  milk
3 very ripe bananas, mashed
(optional add ins I used some 2 tbsp of Seeds,, but you could add nuts, shredded coconut or chocolate chips...)
Its so, so easy to make...
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C or 350 F.  
  2. Mix all the flours and dry ingredients together in bowl
  3. Puree (or mash) bananas, whisk in eggs and honey.
  4. Add wet ingredients into dry.  
  5. Pour into a 8-by-4 inch baking loaf pan.  (A 9-by-5 will create a more short, squat loaf like mine!)  Bake for approximately 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick poked in it comes out clean.
 Use ya loaf, and bake this now.


  1. Mmm, this looks GREAT girlie! I recently pulled my peanut flour out of "hiding" too! Haha! And now I'm getting dangerously low after only a month or so...oops! Love all the pics! You've definitely got me wanting dessert now since I just finished my lunch! :)

  2. Sweetner? Splenda? Equal? Sugar Twin? What did you use? I haven't cooked with sweetner before & I'm going to try some new things. Sounds really yummy. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi, I used granulated splenda but you could use any brand or even omit it completely if you dont like things too sweet. xxx

  4. Oooh, sounds delish! I bet it would be heavenly with choc chips in...

  5. I think your calorie count is off. You entered .45 cup of peanut flour, but used 3/4 (.75) in the recipe?

  6. I believe 1/4 cup of peanut flour is 120 calories (this may vary depending on the brand, but really shouldn't be too off), so 3/4 cup should be 360 calories.
    Also, do you think substituting spelt flour for the rice flour would work? Thanks!
