The best gluten free and dairy free chocolate banana bread!


  • 3 ripe, spotty bananas
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted (sub butter if you don’t need dairy free)
  • 2 eggs 
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp maple syrup (can sub honey) 
  • 2 tbsp milk of choice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1 + 1/3 cup almond flour 
  • 1/3 cup oat flour
  • 1/3 cup tapioca flour/starch
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt 
  • 1 tsp baking soda 
  • 1/3 cup-1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a loaf pan with parchment paper. 
  2. In a large bowl, mash the bananas. Whisk in the coconut oil, honey, eggs, milk of choice, and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Pour in remaining dry ingredients, and stir until everything is well combined. You can fold the chocolate chips into the batter, or leave them to sprinkle on top. 
  4. Pour batter into lined loaf pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top if you did not fold them into the batter.
  5. Bake loaf for 70-75 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean (a few moist crumbs are ok). Allow to cool in the pan for a few minutes, then lift by parchment paper to continue cooling on a cooling rack before slicing and serving.
