 Quick Chocolate Banana Bread


This chocolate banana quick bread is gluten free, oil free, dairy free, and refined sugar free 🙂 

And tasty! 


Makes 1 loaf banana bread 

  • 2 cups certified gluten free oat flour (i just used my rolled oats and blitz in the food processor) 
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder 
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda 
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt 
  • 1 and 1/4 cup pureed overripe banana (about 4 medium sized)
  • ½ cup plain nondairy milk (i used unsweetened almond)
  • ⅓ cup pure maple syrup 
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 
  • 3–4 tablespoons nondairy chocolate chips (i used enjoy life) 

Tip: for a toddler friendly caffeine-free option use toasted carob powder instead of cocoa and vegan carob chips instead of chocolate. 


  1. Bake 350° for about 35 min. (Test with toothpick but don’t over bake) In a parchment lined bread pan
  2. let cool. Enjoy
  3. Cut into tiny squares and freeze in a freezer bag for a quick healthy kids treat

My toddler calls these brownies. Either way she gobbled them up! 

We even served them at an early morning playdate! Healthy, gluten free, allergen free. Great with sliced watermelon. (Avocado bagel not included 😉 )
