I usually don't have bananas lying around the house (TBH I am not a huge fan of bananas!) and so when I do they normally end up sitting on the countertop, getting browner by the day!
The only upside to this is that it means I have perfectly overripe bananas for my Beautiful Banana Bread!
This one-bowl (you can thank me later when you're doing the washing up!), paleo, and vegan choc chip BB is also grain-free, gluten-free and refined sugar free AND it's a much healthier and hormone-friendly version of traditional BB.
So let me stop yapping on and get down to the good stuff!
  • 1 1/2 cup mashed banana (about 3 large bananas)
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 3 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk, I used almond milk
  • 4 tablespoons liquid coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup creamy nut butter, I use organic almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Dark chocolate chopped into chunks or dark choc chips (just make sure they are vegan and sugar free)
  • Half a cup of chopped walnut
  • Preheat oven to 150 degrees celsius and grease a bread dish with coconut oil and/or line with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the banana, ground flax, coconut sugar, milk, coconut oil, nut butter and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
  • Mix in the almond flour, coconut flour and baking powder until well combined with no clumps.
  • Fold in the dark chocolate and walnuts then add to bread dish and bake for about 50-60 minutes (or until toothpick comes out clean!) (top with halved banana for extra decoration)
  • Allow the bread to cool, then slice.


*for an extra treat top with nut butter, coconut yoghurt, nuts etc.
*Store leftovers in an airtight container for three days, in the fridge for a week, or freezer for two months.
