Step 1: Gather Ingredients!

First things first, preheat the oven to 325 degrees and grease a bread pan

What you will need: 
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil 
2 tablespoons milled flax seed
6 tablespoons of water
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup of gluten free all purpose flour
3 bananas

Step 2: Mixing the Ingredients

First, in a small bowl mix together the flax seed and water.

In a large bowl, mix sugar, coconut oil and add in the flax seed mixture. 

Add baking soda, and gluten free flour and mix well.

Mash the bananas, and add them to the mix. (I find it easiest to just use my hands and get messy)

The mixture will seem dry until you add the bananas.

Step 3: Bake

Pour mixture into a bread pan, bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes 

Stick a toothpick or knife in to check if the loaf ready. 

Step 4: Let It Cool and Enjoy!

Every time i do any bread or cakey kinda bread, it always looks real good... until towards the end where it just sinks. And I end up with a loaf that is only about an inch and a half tall :-( Anybody got any idea why this has happened again?!

every time I make this I'm always confused by the part where it says mixture will be dry until you add the bananas. it's soooo wet before you add the bananas. then it's liquid by the time everything's mixed. and it takes waaaaay more than 15 minutes. usually about 30-45 minutes lol. but they come out SO GOOD. I double checked everything this time to make sure I wasn't just making a stupid mistake with the measurements, but I had the same results. is this the case with anyone else?

lol I just reread it and realized it says 1 HOUR and 15 minutes!! that solves that mystery. but it is still way more wet than in the picture. not that I'm complaining because like I said they're wicked good.

Thanks for the recipe. I changed it by using baking stiva adding walnuts. It works great.

Hi. Is baking stivia any different from regular stevia and how much stevia did you use for this recipe?

Thank you so much for this recipe! I made muffins instead and they turned out absolutely amazing! My boyfriend is gluten free and I am vegan so getting a gluten free & vegan recipe is hard to come by. All the other recipes I googled asked for all sorts of ingredients, strange flours and xantham gum. So I was really happy when I came across this as I had most of the ingredients. I added a little maple syrup and some nuts to the mixture and served the muffins along side some whipped up coconut cream! I will be making these again soon, thanks again :D

Was looking for the baking temperature for the pumpkin cookie and stumped on this bread recipe which didn't mention baking temperature either. What is the baking temperature?
