'Free From' Banana Bread


  • 4 large over-ripe bananas (500g peeled), cut into pieces (+ 1 extra to decorate)
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) coconut oil, melted
  • 3/4 cup (110g) buckwheat flour*
  • 3/4 cup (60g) organic desiccated coconut 
  • 2 tsp gf baking powder 
  • 1 tsp organic vanilla powder 


  1. Pre-heat fan-forced oven to 180°C.
  2. In a blender (I use a Vitamix) or food processor blend banana and melted coconut oil until smooth (be careful not to over blend*)
  3. In a medium mixing bowl combine buckwheat, coconut, baking powder and vanilla. Add banana and coconut oil mixture and combine well.
  4. Pour batter into a lined loaf tin.
  5. Bake in oven for 55-60 minutes or until cooked through. 
  6. Allow to cool on a baking before slicing. 

Serving Suggestions:

  • Serve warm, toasted or chilled.

Make It Personal:

  • To make this recipe a little extra sweeter, stir through chopped dates. 
  • You can add chopped walnuts to the mixture. 
  • Decorate the top of the batter with desiccated coconut or slices of banana. 

Recipe Tips:

  • *Despite the name buckwheat does not contain wheat. It is a gluten free pseudocereal (cereal). 
  • *Be careful not to over blend the banana and coconut oil as this may cause the loaf to become denser. 
  • The riper the banana, the sweeter your bread will be.
