  • 3 really ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca starch (or arrowroot starch)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Optional toppings:

  • 1 banana, sliced lengthwise into long thin sliced
  • Chopped nuts (we like walnuts or pecans, this is optional)
  • Chocolate Chips (topping or you could also fold them into the batter)
  • Nut butter (to drizzle on top after it's baked)


  1. Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit, and line a standard bread loaf pan with parchment paper. 

  2. In a large mixing bowl, mash up the banana. Add the coconut sugar and vanilla. Stir to thoroughly combine all of the ingredients. 

  3. Add almond flour, tapioca starch and sea salt. Stir to combine. 

  4. Add baking soda and apple cider vinegar. Let them react and then mix in. 

  5. Spoon the batter into the lined bread pan, and spread out until it is evenly dispersed. Add toppings and gently press them into the batter. 

  6. Transfer to oven and bake for 60-65 minutes, or until the top turns brown, cracks and the loaf is firm. 

  7. Once done, use parchment paper to lift the loaf out of the pan and cool. Slice and serve! Store in an airtight container on the counter or in the fridge to keep it fresh longer.
