Miranda’s mom, Therese Kerr, has kindly shared a delicious and healthy Banana Bread recipes with us. One of her favorites, we recommend you try!

Makes: 1 Loaf – 12 Slices
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 40-45 minutes


*Certified Organic ingredients preferred where possible.

  • 11⁄2 tablespoons coconut oil (to grease pan)
  • 1⁄2 cup (approx. 80 grams) coconut flour
  • 1 cup (approx. 160 grams) gluten-free flour
  • 1⁄2 cup (approx. 80 grams) gluten-free self-raising flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3⁄4 cup (approx. 120 grams) coconut sugar
  • 1⁄2 cup (approx. 80 grams) raisins, sul- tanas, or dried currants
  • 1⁄2 cup (approx. 60 grams) finely chopped pitted dates
  • 3⁄4 cup (approx. 120 grams) crushed walnuts
  • 6 eggs
  • 3⁄4 cup (185 ml) rice milk
  • 3⁄4 cup (185 ml) melted coconut oil
  • 1⁄4 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 overripe bananas
  • 1 cup of blueberries, either fresh or frozen (optional)
  • 1⁄4 cup of halved walnuts (to place on top of the bread)


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F.
  2. Grease a loaf tin or baking pan (approx. 19 cm length x 8.5 cm depth) with a teaspoon of coconut oil and line with baking paper.
  3. In a large bowl, sift the flours, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
  4. Add the coconut sugar, raisins (or sultanas or currants), dates and nuts and mix well.
  5. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with the rice milk, melted coconut oil, honey and vanilla extract. Add to the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  6. In a separate bowl, mash the bananas and then fold them into the cake mixture. The consistency should be quite wet and just runny enough to be poured from the bowl into the cake tin; if it looks too dry then add more rice milk.
  7. Pour the mixture into the tin and then fold in the blueberries gently, ensuring that they don’t sink to the bottom of the mixture (this will prevent them from sticking to the bottom of the tin whilst cooking).
  8. Place the halved walnuts on top of the mixture.
  9. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until cooked in the middle. (Tip: to test, insert a skewer or knife into the middle; if it comes out clean, the bread is done.)

    Such a beautiful recipe to bake. I used coconut milk instead of rice milk, it turned out really nice. Thanks for sharing it! X
