Tips on making gluten free chocolate chip bread
- Don’t use margarine instead of butter. It simply won’t work. Use the real stuff and enjoy the amazing flavors!
- If you are dairy free, substitute 1/2 cup of butter with 1/3 cup of olive oil. You can check out this Green Banana Bread recipe that was made dairy free.
- Use dark brown sugar in order to get the moisture and color for your gluten free bread
- Use good quality salt, such as Celtic salt or Himalayan salt.
- If you don’t have orange juice, you can also use grapefruit juice or milk.
- I used green banana flour in order to add resistant starch to my gluten free bread. Resistant starch is one of the building blocks of healthy digestion! Green banana flour is easy and delicious way to add this important element to your diet! By the way, Amazon sells cheap green banana flour and so does your grocery store!
- Bake until loaf is dark brown and skewer inserted in center comes out clean.
