Easy Vegan Banana Bread Recipe

Updated: May 17, 2020

A sea of banana bread posts have flooded our Instagram feeds in the last few weeks and honestly, who's to complain?

There's nothing more comforting than the smell of a homemade loaf baking away during a day in quarantine.

We decided to join in on the fun with this vegan, gluten and refined sugar-free spin on the classic. Made with chunky dark chocolate chunks, this is the perfect treat with an afternoon cup of tea.

Give it a whirl and let us know what you think.

Wet Ingredients

2 medium-sized bananas (ripe and spotty)

2 heaped tbsp coconut oil

4-5 tbsp pure maple syrup

Dry Ingredients

1 cup oats

1 cup rice flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

Chocolate chunks (we used refined-sugar free dark choc)

Pinch of salt

Optional: chopped almonds


1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.

2. Mash bananas with a fork. Add maple syrup and melted coconut oil. Combine well.

3. Whisk together dry ingredients and add to the banana mixture to form a batter.

4. Transfer to a lined baking tin and bake for around 20 minutes until golden brown (a knife should come out clean).

5. Transfer to cooling rack and allow to cool before slicing.
