Most of these recipes are also dairy-free, refined sugar-free and are on the health-conscious end of the banana bread spectrum. You will also find vegan, paleo, and even Keto options! Enjoy!

There’s no denying it…Banana bread recipes are a THING right now.

Truly, they have always been a thing, but now more so than ever. We are all looking for comfort and familiarity with a side of staying well physically.

One of the ways I’m using my free time and mind space is in trying new methods of cooking and baking.

It is fascinating to me how small nuances can change a whole recipe. I purchased to book, The Food Lab to gain a better understanding on how certain ingredients react with others and the way techniques can make all the difference in cooking and baking.

So. We shall start with banana bread. So many recipes, so many flours, all sorts of different takes on this iconic comfort loaf. 

This may be my favorite recipe roundup I have ever shared on The Roasted Root. Why did it take me so long to collect THE best gluten-free banana bread recipes from around the web? Well…I was probably too busy making banana bread.

What you need to know about the recipes in this post is they are from the food blogs I frequent the most, and they are all tried and true recipes. I was sure to include recipes using various flours, as I know there is always a preference when it comes to flours used in gluten-free or grain-free baking.

Be sure to read the descriptions for each recipe to see which one(s) you’d fancy baking!

These gluten-free banana bread recipes are listed in no particular order – they are equally magnificent in my eyes!

You may even recognize a few of my own banana bread recipes in this post 😉 I have A LOT of banana bread recipes on my site, so after much deliberation, I included my Top 3. 

I won’t keep you…I know you have all the baking to do and all the banana bread taste testing to enjoy. I hope you love these recipes as much as I do…feel free to report back on which ones you try and enjoy!

32 Healthy Freezer Meals

A couple of weeks ago, I had a reader request freezer meals. Happy to oblige! Nothing pleases me more to provide inspiration or resources for meals that are easy to prepare and save. After all, cooking shouldn’t be complicated (IMHO).

In this post, I am including my favorite recipes from my site that can be frozen, thawed, and re-heated easily, as well as mouth-watering recipes from around the web.

Paleo Panang Curry - a quick and easy recipe for Thai curry | TheRoastedRoot.netWhich Foods Freeze & Reheat Well?:

In general, plenty of liquid and/or fat and minimal vegetables makes a great freezeable meal. You’re pretty safe with anything that is smothered in tomato sauce, a cream-based sauce or coconut milk sauce.

Take lasagna for instance. It includes sauce, minimal fresh vegetables, and plenty of fat (from the cheese and/or meat). Casseroles, meat-centric soups (hello, chili!!!), curries, and recipes using pantry staples freeze and reheat well without tasting funky.  

Hearty vegetables, like root vegetables, winter squash, onion, and peppers freeze and reheat very well, but less hearty vegetables like cauliflower and zucchini do not.

As an exception to this, recipes that are fairly dry for the most part, such as veggie burgers, meatballs, breaded meats, and/or animal protein burgers are great candidates for freezing to reheat and consume later.

Chicken Massaman Curry - butternut squash and chicken stewed in aromatic coconut milk sauce for a satisfying meal that happens to be healthier than Thai takeout. Paleo, Whole30, and delicious

So let’s dive in! Here are my favorite healthy freezer meals from both The Roasted Root and from around the web.
