This is my go-to banana bread recipe. It's incredibly simple to make as well as being gluten free, dairy free and sugar free.
This isthe simplest banana bread you will ever make. Probably the healthiest too!My recipe for Easy Gluten Free, Grain Free
Banana Bread contains healthy sources of protein and good fats and no added sugar and just how I like my banana bread its not overly sweet too (completely
guilt free!). Enjoy toasted for breakfast, as a nourishing snack or as an accompaniment to a cup of tea.

  • 3 large Free Range Eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups Banana (approx 3 large) over-ripe, mashed
  • 2 cups Almond Meal
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil melted
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder (or 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon


  • Pre-heat fan-forced oven to 180°C. 
  • In a medium mixing bowl whisk eggs. Add mashed banana and liquid coconut oil, whisk to combine.
  •  Add in almond meal, baking powder and cinnamon and combine well. 
  • Pour batter into a lined loaf tin. 
  • Bake in oven for 40- 45 minutes or until cooked through. Test with a skewer; the skewer will come out clean when cooked through. 


Serving Suggestions:
  • Serve warm, toasted or chilled.
Make It Personal:
  • Add almond flakeson surface prior to baking and place baking paper on top (to stop almond flakes from burning).
  • Stir through ½ cup chopped walnuts in batter.
  • Add 1 teaspoon pure vanilla powder to batter.
  • To give your banana bread a little extra sweetness and a boost of extra banana flavour add an additional ¼ cup of mashed banana to mixture, totalling 1 ½ cups.
  • If you have a sweet tooth add an extra 1/4 cup mashed banana to batter and top with a sliced banana on top or serve with honey.
  • Instead of cooking as a loaf of banana bread you can spoon batter into muffin trays and cook for half the time.
  • For a fun decoration layer the top of you uncooked Banana Bread with thin slices of banana before baking.
Recipe Tips:
  • Be careful not to cook the banana bread at a heat that is too high as this will cause the top to burn and the middle will be undercooked.
  • This recipe is suitable to freeze.
  • Try not to over mash the banana.
  • Be sure to use baking powder that is free from gluten and aluminium.
Sensitive to Nuts?
  • Substitute almond meal for ½ cup coconut flour + 2 tablespoons coconut oil. The loaf will turn out smaller so use a smaller loaf tin or make into mini muffins.
