Gluten-free poppy seed banana bread

I love baking banana bread. It is perfectly sweet, soft, and moist. The consistency always gets me. However, it is so easy to make your own banana bread at home! If you have ripe bananas at home, banana bread is a must. This time I made gluten-free poppy seed banana bread. I love poppy seeds so much and I was surprised how this combination with banana bread turns out.

I love experimenting when baking. So that's how I made this amazing gluten-free poppy seed banana bread. I wanted to combine my favorite ingredients which were poppy seeds and banana bread. Firstly I wasn't sure about this combination, but then I realized its a worth to try. And I'm so happy that I tried this! This recipe is so perfect. I layered batter and poppy seeds filling so it created such a pretty pattern. I love how this bread turns out.

      Gluten-free flours can have a different volume, for example, 80g of rice flour is 1/2 cup, 80g of gf oat flour is 3/4 cup, and when it comes to corn flour it is probably 1/2 cup. But it also depends on the consistency of flour. That's why I love to measure everything in grams. By doing that, it is very easy to achieve the same recipe! And when it comes to 40g of date paste, it would be 1/3 - 1/2 cup 🙂 depends on how sweet the bread you want! I hope this helped!
