Kai's Sweet Banana Bread is a scrumptious gluten free, egg free sweet bread made with ripe bananas, medjool dates, gluten free oats, rice, and coconut flour.


Dry ingredients

  • 150g (5.3oz) Gluten free oat flour
  • 150g (5.3oz) Sweet white rice flour
  • 80g (2.8oz) Corn starch (or 100g/3.5oz potato starch or 133g/4.7oz tapioca flour)
  • 75g (2.6oz) Coconut flour
  • 30g (1.1oz) Chia flour/ground chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon Bicarbonate of soda
  • 1.5 teaspoons Cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 pinch Salt

Wet ingredients

  • 3 Small, very ripe bananas (or 2 large very ripe bananas)
  • 4 Medjool dates, rinsed and pitted
  • 1 Vanilla bean, seeds of
  • 125g (1/2cup) 100% pure Maple syrup (or Rice bran syrup or 2 tsp Stevia)
  • 30g (1.1oz) Coconut oil (or other subtle flavoured oil)
  • 1 tablespoon Apple cider vinegar
  • 300ml Milk of choice (e.g. rice milk)


Step 1. Set oven to 180ºC (360ºF) fan forced.
Step 2. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl until well combined.
Step 3. In a separate large bowl, mash the bananas. Finely chop the medjool dates and add to the bananas. Scrape out the seeds of the vanilla bean and add to the bowl. (If you have a blender, puree the bananas, dates and vanilla bean seeds together).
Step 4. Add the remaining wet ingredients and stir until well combined.
Step 5. Gradually add the flour mixture to the liquid, stirring well. The mixture will gradually thicken and become sticky due to the action of the chia.
Step 6. Pour the mixture into a lined loaf tin or paper muffin molds. Bake for one hour for a loaf or 30-35 minutes for muffins, or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Step 7. Remove from the oven and let sit covered with a tea towel for 15 minutes before turning out of tins. Slice when cool, or when you can no longer resist devouring this scrumptious bread.


Finally, put your feet up, grab your favourite hot drink and enjoy Kai's Sweet Banana Bread served with a generous spread of dairy free margarine or honey.
