I made this today and totally thought it was going to be a fail. I actually wanted to use almond flour but I ran out so I had to improvise and add coconut flour instead which was absolutely delicious. This banana bread is so easy and anyone can enjoy it. If you feel like adding almond flour instead you will have to add more and go based on consistency because coconut flour is very absorbent and we always use a lot less in recipes.

Author: The Modern Nonna
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour

Ingredients 

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk — or any
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup avocado oil — or any
  • ½ cup maple syrup — or any sweetener you like
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 ¼ – 1.5 cups coconut flour depending on how big the eggs and bananas are
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

Instructions 

  • Pre-heat oven to 350F. In a bowl mash the bananas and stir in the first 7 ingredients.
  • Add the flour, baking powder and baking soda and stir. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and add in the batter.
  • It will be really sick so with clean hands or the back of a spoon distribute it evenly.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes depending on the oven or until golden and a toothpick comes out clean. Mine took 60 minutes. Enjoy,

Notes

If you use almond flour you will definitely need more as coconut flour is extremely absorbent and we require a lot less of it. I used 1.5 cups of coconut flour but you might need a little bit less depending on how big the eggs and bananas are. Feel free to use any sweetener, oil, or milk of choice

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…

  1. Hello there! Just wondering if I could use sweet potato flour instead of coconut flour for this recipe? Thank you!

    1. Hi Michelle, I wish I could give you more guidance but unfortunately I have not tried it in this recipe 🙁

    1. Hi Anna,
      yes you can but you have to do this by eye as you might need more. Coconut flour is more absorbent that oat flour so keep that in mind.

  2. Hi Modern Nonna,

    Thank you for this recipe !!

    I was wondering if I could replace the eggs with flax eggs or if you could let me know what the purpose of the eggs are in this recipe and I could search online for a possible replacement.

    Thank you 🙂

    1. Hi Tash! I haven’t tried but you definitely need to try an egg replacement like flax egg chia egg or apple sauce
