Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups mashed overripe banana (~3 large bananas)
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts, for topping


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, add mashed bananas, light brown sugar, peanut butter, melted coconut oil, almond milk, and vanilla extract. Mix together until evenly combined.
  3. Add all-purpose flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix together just until the flour is evenly incorporated.
  4. Transfer the batter to a loaf pan. Sprinkle chopped peanuts on top of the batter.
  5. Bake banana bread for 1 hour. After, remove from the oven. Let cool inside the pan for 15-20 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!


  • Mashed banana: I recommend mashing 3-4 large bananas, then measuring 1 1/2 cups. Be sure to use overripe spotty bananas for the best results.
  • Coconut oil: Be sure to melt the coconut oil, then measure 1/4 cup.
  • Peanut butter: If you cannot eat peanut butter, use sunflower seed butter instead.
  • Chopped peanuts: The topping is optional, but it adds crunchy texture and nutty flavor. You can also use chopped walnuts or pecans.
  • Mixing the batter: Do not over-mix the batter. If you over-mix it, your banana bread will become tough and rubbery. It is best to mix the ingredients just until the flour is evenly incorporated.
  • Parchment paper:┬áBe sure to line the loaf pan with a piece of parchment paper. This prevents the banana bread from sticking to the pan.
