Gluten-Free Vegan Marshmallow, PB, Banana, Chocolate Chip Bread

Gluten-Free Vegan Marshmallow, PB, Banana, Chocolate Chip Bread -- well that's a mouthful of a name, isn't it? It's ok though, because a mouthful of this treat is nothing to complain about!

Gluten-Free Vegan Marshmallow, PB, Banana, Chocolate Chip Bread

On a serious note {because discussing a marshmallow dessert is a serious thing... ;) }, I've made a resolution that until I figure out a refined sugar-free and vegan marshmallow recipe of my own, I will try to restrain myself from posting marshmallow-based recipes. So this is the last marshmallow treat you'll be seeing here for a while {crazy stuff!}. You probably know by now that if I make a sugary exception once in a while, it's almost always exclusively for some vegan marshmallows. I just can't help loving the stuff! But I really want this space to be a dedicated refined sugar-free space, so this resolution has to happen, otherwise I keep on getting suckered into buying more Dandies, and that only keeps me in a constant postponing of making my own "good-for-you" marshmallows instead!

I made this recipe prior to this new resolution though, so sharing it now because I think you'll appreciate it ;) . I don't think it really needs any explanations -- the name says it all :) . If you love the classic combo of peanut butter, chocolate, and toasted marshmallows -- imagine that in a square of delicious banana bread... with a nice cup of hot chocolate and a scoop of {banana?} ice cream on the side while you're at it too ;)

Note: this recipe is from before I went totally refined sugar-free.

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes

  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: one 8" x 8" pan {9 squares}
  • Category: Bars
  • Method: Baked
  • Cuisine: Dessert


A chunky, chewy sweet vegan dessert bar made with gooey marshmallows, chunks of chocolate, and the goodness of peanut butter and bananas. Gluten-free.



  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • ½ cup non-dairy milk
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • dash of salt
  • 2 ¼ cups of my gluten-free flour mix {1 cup brown rice flour, ¾ cup sweet sticky rice flour, ½ cup tapioca flour, ½ teaspoon guar gum} {or if using a store-bought mix, I recommend using 2 cups of Pamela's Artisan Flour Blend}
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ cup non-dairy chocolate chips {or a chopped up chocolate bar}
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows {I used Dandies -- a vegan and non-GMO brand}



  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a square 8" x 8" pan {or anything of a similar size} with some parchment paper {be sure to line the sides well}. Then, grease the lined sides close to the top {the marshmallows can get a little sticky when baked!}. Set aside.
  2. Place peanut butter, bananas, milk, and sweetener in a large mixing bowl and blend using an immersion blender until smooth {if you don't have an immersion blender you can blend these ingredients in a regular blender or process in a food processor and then transfer to a mixing bowl. Or, alternatively mash the bananas really well with a fork and then thoroughly mix all these ingredients by hand}.
  3. Add in salt, flour, baking powder and baking soda and mix everything with a wooden spoon to combine. Fold in the chocolate chips and marshmallows.
  4. Transfer the bread batter into the pan and smooth out the top. Cover with the topping marshmallows and chocolate chips {try not to get the marshmallows to come close to the edges -- once baked, they can sometimes be a little sticky and hard to separate from the parchment paper}. Bake in a preheated oven for approximately 35 minutes until a skewer inserted down the center comes out clean. Cool on a cooling rack for 10 minutes, cut into squares and enjoy!
