Healthy Banana Bread

Healthy Banana Bread

Nothing better than the scent of sweet roasted banana bread and cinnamon.

One of my absolute favourite recipes, for that light & fluffy sweet banana bread. With hints of cinnamon. I love to have these as a great quick breakfast OTG option, or as a filling snack with some tea!

Best served nice and toasted with a smear of almond butter( if you're feeling fancy) or enjoy as is!

  • 2 cup oat flour (pulse rolled oats in a food processor until fine (1 cup=250ml ))
  • 5 ripe medium bananas (Mashed)
  • 6 Tbsp pure maple syrup OR honey
  • 2 Tbsp oil of choice (I used avocado oil)
  • 1/2 cup yoghurt of choice
  • 1 Tbsp milk of choice (i used almond)
  • 1 egg OR 1 chia egg (1 tbsp chia seeds mixed with 3 tbsp water)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract or powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • 1/4-1/2 cup dark chocolate chips


  • Use apple sauce instead of yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup cubed apple pieces


  • Add 1/2 cup blueberries


  • Add 1/2 cup cubed pineapple
  • Add 1/4 cup desiccated toasted coconut


  • recipe as is!


  • Add the rind of 2 lemons
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius. In a high speed blender, blend the bananas until well blended and forms a liquid (if you don’t have a blender you can mash the bananas with a fork until finely mashed).
  2. Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl and combine well with a spoon. Add extra ingredients for flavour of choice or keep it as is if you’re looking for a classic banana bread.
  3. Grease a loaf tin (or mini loaf tins) with some non-stick spray or some parchment paper.
  4. Place batter into prepared pan. If you’re using a loaf tin, bake for 30-35 mins or until a toothpick comes out clear. If using a mini loaf pan, bake for roughly 10-15 mins, until golden brown and tooth pick comes out clear.
  5. Let it cool completely and refrigerate in covered container overnight ( It gets sweeter the next day).

If wanting to freeze, store in an airtight container and can be frozen up to around a month.
