Banana Oat Bread (Wheat-Free, Dairy-Free)

1/3 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled down to room temperature
3 large or 4 small very ripe bananas (make sure that they are very ripe for more sweetness)
1/2 cup sucanat (this is a natural form of cane sugar)
1/2 cup natural brown sugar
1 egg, room temperature
1 tsp good quality vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups oat flour
1/4 cup oat bran
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2-2/3 cup unsalted chopped nuts (I prefer walnuts)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Allow your egg to sit out for a bit to come to room temperature.  When working with coconut oil, you need all of your ingredients to be room temperature, so the oil doesn’t start to solidify in your mixture.  Spray 4 mini loaf pans with cooking spray (or 18 muffin tins).  Set aside.  In the bowl of an electric mixer combine bananas, coconut oil, sucanat, brown sugar, egg and vanilla.  Mix on medium speed until smooth and well blended (about a minute or so).  Add all dry ingredients (except nuts) in a large bowl and blend with a whisk until well blended (you can also sift together).  Slowly add dry mixture to wet mixture while blending on low until all ingredients are incorporated.  Stir in nuts.  Pour evenly into loaf pans and bake for 35 minutes (loaves) and 20 minutes (muffins).


Thank you Amee for this yummy, healthy recipe!

    This is indeed awsome! I tried baking this with my kids and we had fun and of course they loved it! They even asked for more Congo Bars!. I sure will recommend this recipe as well as your blog to my friends. Thanks a lot and I’ll be looking forward to your future posts.

Many store-brand bread-makers are still using milk in their products to give it that wonderful texture. But we’ve got a recipe that makes a delicious loaf of bread with that same texture without using milk. lactose free bread
