Gluten Free White Chocolate Pumpkin Banana Bread

Gluten Free White Chocolate Pumpkin Banana Bread 

I created this Gluten Free White Chocolate Pumpkin Banana Bread a couple of months ago when it was acceptable to start having pumpkin everything. Like I talked about in my post “Gluten Free Is Not A Fad When You Suffer From Celiac Disease” , I like to create gluten free dessert recipes. All the banana bread recipes that I make are also gluten free but they don’t taste like they are gluten free. Also, what is fall time without pumpkin desserts? This pumpkin banana bread would make a lovely dessert for Thanksgiving. If you are gluten free or you have gluten free guests coming to your house or just want to make a great tasting fall dessert, this would be an easy and delicious choice.



In a bowl mix the mashed bananas, pumpkin puree, butter, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon.

In a separate bowl mix the gluten free flour, baking soda, and salt.


Add the flour, baking soda, and salt mix into the other bowl and mix well until combined. Do not over mix.


Flour and grease a 9X5 loaf pan. Pour in the mix and smooth it out. Put it in a preheated 325 degree oven for 65-70 minutes.


Once it is done take it out and let it cool for about 10-15 minutes before you add the white chocolate.


Make a double broiler on the stove and put it on a medium high heat.


Once the water starts getting hot, add the white chocolate (either half of a bar or white chocolate chips) with 1 tsp of coconut oil to the top pot. Mix with a wooden spoon until completely melted.


Once your banana bread is cooled and your white chocolate is melted, drizzle it on top.


Here is your completed White Chocolate Pumpkin Bread before you cut the first slice.


This is what the inside of it looks like.


This is the end result of a delicious and moist piece of the Gluten Free White Chocolate Pumpkin Banana Bread.
