I baked this banana bread recently for my sons’ school fair. Coming up with a recipe that fit my dairy and grain-free protocol was somewhat constraining but the end result was this deliciously moist banana bread.




  • 4 bananas
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup sweet potato flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbs almond butter/tahini
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • a pinch of Himalayan salt
  • Seeds, to garnish


Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°c.

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas thoroughly.

Step 3

Add all remaining ingredients and combine.

Step 4

Grease a small loaf tin with coconut oil.

Step 5

Pour in banana bread dough and top with a sprinkling of seeds (chia, pumpkin).

Step 6

Put into oven for 45 minutes until golden brown.

Step 7

Remove from oven and insert a knife to ensure cooked (knife will come out clean)

Step 8

Pop out of tin and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Enjoy!
