My favorite banana bread recipe (Vegan and Gluten-free)

Hi everyone- I haven’t blogged for a few months, as I have been focusing on making more videos for my  youtube channel.  I  definitely enjoy the creative process, particularly the opportunity to be myself in front of the camera.  I am going to continue to focus on video production over the coming months, and we’ll see where that takes me. Regardless of the medium I choose, my objective remains the same – sharing my experiences in Nigeria, and my passion for health and well-being.

Let’s talk about this favorite banana bread recipe of mine.  Somebody had asked me for a recipe the other day, and I am more than happy to share. This is exactly the kind of dynamic I am looking to achieve with my followers through my blog and channel.

It’s super simple, no-fuss, but it’s so EXTRA in terms of flavor and texture.”



Don’t forget to share it with your loved ones.

Okay, so here are the ingredients:

  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 3/4 cup gluten free flour (the mix I used was a combination of rice flour, tapioca flour, quinoa flour)
  • 3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 3 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar or dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup vegan dark chocolate chips (I use the brand enjoy life, but feel free to use whichever you have on hand)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • pinch of himalayan salt/ seasalt


You can use regular flour if you don’t have gluten-free flours available on hand.



Preheat oven to 350F

  1. Mash bananas until it becomes smooth in consistency then add almond milk, olive oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
  2. On a separate bowl, combine flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Mix wet and dry ingredients together and add the remaining ingredients (chopped walnuts and chocolate chips)
  4. Transfer to a loaf pan lined with parchment paper and bake for 50-60 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

ET VOILA! Enjoy!
