Sugar Free Buckwheat Banana Bread Recipe

As part of my quest for gluten-free living, I've been experimenting with buckwheat. Baking is such a big part of my life that quite honestly, I don't see how I can go gluten-free if I can't bake. I've really enjoyed this experiment, and while I find it is more expensive to use buckwheat, there hasn't been a huge 'getting used to' period where taste is concerned. It's good, it tastes good, and it's just as simple to work with as normal flour. It is a little gloopier, and the texture is a little grittier, but it's a fabulous and tasty recipe.

    Hi there,

    Could you tell me if there is a replacement for butter in this recipe that would work?

    Hiya, I haven’t tried it with any replacement butter, but if I was going to, I would probably use unrefined coconut oil. Hope it works for you!
