Cardamom Pecan Banana Bread

This gluten-free Cardamom Pecan Banana Bread is one of my staple recipes. It's a go-to when we need comfort food - or when there's too many bananas in the house.

  • loaf pan


  • 4 ripe bananas (3 large bananas will work)
  • ¾ cup sugar or coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • ½ cup butter softened (or coconut oil)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon GF vanilla bean paste or extract
  • 1 ½ cups Gluten Free Flour Blend
  • 1 cup pecans roughly chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 350.
  • Grease and flour a loaf pan and set aside.
  • In a medium sized bowl, mash the bananas and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir the sugars together with the butter. Then add the eggs and mix thoroughly.
  • Add bananas, baking soda, cardamom, salt and vanilla and stir to combine. Then add in the flour and mix the batter. Fold in the pecans and pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Smooth the top of the loaf, and add a few whole pecans to the top.
  • Bake at 350 for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool before slicing.


Make it Dairy Free: substitute coconut oil for the butter
