Recipe: BANANA LOAF (gluten & grain-free)


This is a definite favourite of mine: perfect to have a slice with a green juice for a quick, on-the-go breakfast, or as an afternoon treat with a cup of tea. Great treat for kids too, as it’s naturally sweetened, and rich in healthy fats and proteins.


2 organic eggs
2-3 ripe bananas
1/3 – 1/2 cup of butter or coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup of almond flour or 1/2 cup of coconut flour (or a mixture of both. Add a little more if the mixture looks too wet)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 pinch of Himalayan salt


Preheat oven to 165C
Blend the wet ingredients for a minute or so until they appear airy and fluffy
Add the dry ingredients, being careful not to over-mix
Pour the mixture into a lined tin
Bake for 20-30 minutes


Try adding cinnamon / chocolate chips / raisins / sultanas / cranberries for a tasty variation!

This recipe can also be used to make mini-muffins


  1. Yum! I love that this recipe could use either almond meal or coconut flour. I favor the latter, but it seems like a lot more recipes use the former. And since I eat a banana every day, it’d be fun to mix things up and eat them in banana bread instead!

    1. Fab! Thank you for your comment 🙂 I sometimes use a mixture of coconut flour and desiccated coconut too which is even more moist and also nut-free, so you could try that out too!

  2. Desiccated and shredded are virtually the same – shredded just bigger pieces I think. Both are still very healthy and not massively sweet at all – prob even healthier than coconut flour as they don’t have the fat stripped from them.
