Not all oat flour is gluten-free, so if you are concerned about contamination during production, look for oat flour that is labeled gluten-free. Some baking powder may contain wheat starch, so be sure to check labels.

Gluten-Free Cranberry Oat Bread Recipe


  1. 1/2 cup plus 1/8 cup rice flour
    1/2 cup plus 1/8 cup oat flour
    3/4 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
    1 1/4 cups ripe mashed banana pulp (about 3 bananas)
    2 large eggs
    1/3 cup Earth Balance
    1 tablespoon honey
    1/2 cup dried cranberries
    1/4 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8-by-8-inch pan (or 9-by-5-inch loaf pan) with a small amount of Earth Balance.
  2. Whisk together both flours, oats, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Set aside. Whisk bananas, eggs, and Earth Balance together in a separate bowl. Add honey, cranberries, and lemon juice; mix until blended. Gently stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture until just combined. Do not overmix the batter.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until lightly browned, 50-60 minutes (allow a little less time for the loaf pan). Allow the bread to cool completely in the pan, about 1 hour. Cut into squares; if using a loaf pan, turn the bread out onto a cutting board and, using a serrated bread knife, slice the bread into 3/4-inch-thick pieces. Arrange on a platter and serve.
