This healthy banana bread recipe is ultra moist, fluffy and Easy to make with a handful of wholesome ingredients. Great for breakfast, snacking and meal prep! (Vegan, gluten free, oil free & refined sugar free).




  1. Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C). Line or grease a 8×4 inch loaf tin. 
  2. Into a large mixing bowl, weigh in the bananas and mash until pureed. You could also blend the bananas until smooth if you prefer a uniform banana bread with no chunks of bananas. Pour in the tahini, dairy free milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract and apple cider vinegar and whisk until combined.
  3. Add in the oat flour, rice flour, potato starch, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk until well combined. 
  4. Transfer batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 40 minutes. If you have a nice golden crust on the top already, place tin foil over the loaf and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until it’s springy to the touch and skewer comes out clean when inserted in the middle. Total baking time should be about 55-60 minutes. 
  5. Remove from the oven and then carefully remove the banana bread out of the loaf pan. Be sure to run a dull knife around the edges where the banana bread is touching the pan without parchment paper between it. Place on a wire rack and allow the bread to cool completely before slicing. Enjoy!
