Healthy Gluten-Free Chai Spiced Banana Bread. An excellent way to use up overripe bananas is to make banana bread. In this recipe, I wanted more flavour than just bananas, so I added my favourite blend of chai spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and fresh ginger.

Don’t have ripe bananas? No problem, you can ripen them in a few seconds using a microwave.

Poke firm unpeeled bananas all over with a fork or knife. Then place them on a paper towel  and microwave on high for 30 seconds at a time, repeating until they’re as soft as you need them.

Or, you can use the oven method. Place the bananas, still in their peels, on a lined, rimmed baking sheet. Turn the oven to 300°F. Bake the bananas until their peels turn black. The bananas will be mushy and deliciously sweet.

To keep this banana bread recipe healthier, I didn’t add sugar and used only olive oil for fats. Overripe bananas are much sweeter than green bananas, so they are ideal for a recipe when it calls for a sweetener, the best part, even though they are sweeter the calories remain the same.

The best part, ripe bananas have many health benefits, find out more.

Since I used only bananas as a sweetener, this is not a sweet breakfast cake. This delicious chai spiced banana bread is only lightly sweetened, making it an excellent addition to cheeses or if you like more sweetness add a splash of marmalade.

If you prefer a sweeter version of gluten-free banana bread, add 1/4 cup of coconut sugar to the recipe. If you want more gluten-free recipes to use up ripe bananas check these out->
