Banana Bread

I was lucky enough to travel the East Coast of Australia at the end of 2017 and no matter where I went, I was never far away from some Banana Bread! One of the first things that I did when I came back was bake this plant-based version:

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 200g plain Flour (white/wholemeal or any other type of flour will work)
  • 75g Brown Sugar
  • 2tsp Baking Powder
  • 1tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1tsp Cinnamon
  • 1tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/2tsp Ginger
  • 2tbsp Agave Syrup (Maple syrup will also be fine)
  • 3 mashed Bananas (the browner the better)
  • 200ml Almond Milk (or any other nut milk)
  • 4tbsp melted Coconut Oil
  • Nuts and Seeds to sprinkle on top (optional)


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees (fan)
  2. Line a medium sized loaf tin with baking paper
  3. In medium bowl combine the Sugar, Agave, mashed Bananas, Almond Milk, Coconut Oil and combine with an electric hand mixer
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix for 2-3 minutes until well combined
  5. Pour the mixture into your loaf tin and sprinkle with seeds and nuts (I used an Omega Seed mix, Almonds and Cocoa Nibs)
  6. Place in the centre of the oven for 20 minutes, or until the top has browned
  7. Once the top has browned, cover the loaf with tin foil (so that the top does not burn) and place back in the oven for 40 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean when pressed into the loaf
  8. Allow to cool before removing from the tin. Once cooled, can serve with either Peanut Butter, Compote, Coconut Yoghurt or plain πŸ™‚
