Gut Friendly Banana Macadamia Bread

This gut friendly banana bread is one of my favourite healthy snacks. Being sugar free and grain free and made with real, unprocessed ingredients, it's a healthy, guilt free snack or treat that supports good gut health. I add buttery and health promoting macadamias for that extra special touch adding an element of texture and flavour as well as good, healthy fats your body will love.

  • 3 large free range eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups mashed overripe banana
  • 1 tbsp macadamia nut oil
  • 1 - 2 tbsp rice malt syrup or honey
  • 1 cup macadamias
  • 1/2 cup macadamias , roughly chopped
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • Pre-heat your fan-forced oven to 175°C. 
  • In a mixing bowl whisk eggs with mashed banana, macadamia oil and rice malt syrup.In a blender or food processor (I use my Vitamix) 
  • pulse 1 cup macadamia nuts to a ground nut meal consistency (some texture is ok). 
  • Add ground macadamias, almond meal, baking powder and cinnamon to wet mixture and combine. 
  • Stir through remaining macadamia nuts. 
  • Pour into a lined loaf tin and bake in oven for 40-45 minutes or until cooked through and lightly golden. 



  • Adjust sweetness to liking by increasing or decreasing amount of natural sweetener (rice malt syrup).
  • The recipe also works without any sweeter and just with the natural sweetness of banana. Before baking; top with crushed macadamia nuts or sliced banana.
