This banana bread is moist, sweet, and beyond delicious! The recipe is vegan, gluten-free, and uses only 10 ingredients. 



Wet Ingredients

  • 3 medium, extra ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil*
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups oat flour**
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Mix-Ins (Optional)

  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper, or generously coat the pan with oil to prevent sticking. 
  3. Wet Ingredients: Peel the extra ripe bananas. In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until nearly smooth. Add brown sugar, melted coconut oil, almond milk, and vanilla extract. Mix until combined.
  4. Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, combine the oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Stir together.
  5. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Mix until combined. Toss in the chopped walnuts and dark chocolate chips. 
  6. Pour batter into the parchment-lined (or generously greased) loaf pan.
  7. Bake for 60 minutes, or until golden brown. Use the moist-texture toothpick test to determine whether or not it is finished baking. 
  8. Allow banana bread to cool before slicing and serving. 


*If your coconut oil is solid, add a few spoonfuls to a bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds to melt. Then, measure out 1/4 cup and proceed with the recipe. 

**You can buy pre-made oat flour, or create your own at home! Simply add 2.5 cups rolled oats to a high-speed blender or food processor. Process the oats until a fine flour is formed. Then, measure 2 cups and proceed with the recipe.
