Starbucks Banana Nut Bread (with gluten free option)

Gluten Free Starbucks Banana Nut Bread

Gluten Free Starbucks Banana Nut Bread

This is a healthier and lighter version of the popular banana nut bread from Starbucks. Gluten free flour and oat flour are substituted for white flour. (You can use whole wheat flour if you prefer).  I also used coconut oil in reduced amounts instead of margarine.  The last change I made was utilizing palm sugar and Stevia instead of white sugar.  If you’ve tried the Starbucks banana nut bread and like it, I encourage you to try this one as well.  Also, if you aren’t a fan of nuts you can also substitute chocolate chips for the walnuts.
