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.


Whole grains and seeds

  • 150g (5.3oz) Gluten free oats
  • 150g (5.3oz) Sticky white rice (e.g. Sushi rice or Arborio rice, or Medium grain brown rice)
  • 30g (1.1oz) Chia seeds
  • 1 pinch Himalayan rock salt

Other dry ingredients

  • 80g (2.8oz) Corn starch (or 100g/3.5oz potato starch or 133g/4.7oz tapioca flour)
  • 75g (2.6oz) Coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon Bicarbonate of soda
  • 1.5 teaspoons Cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon

Wet ingredients

  • 1 Vanilla bean, seeds of
  • 3 Small, very ripe bananas (or 2 large very ripe bananas)
  • 4 Medjool dates, rinsed and pitted
  • 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
  • 300g (300ml) Milk of choice (e.g. rice milk)


Step 1. Set oven to 180ºC (360ºF) fan forced.
Step 2. Place whole grains and seeds into Thermomix (TM) bowl and mill for two minutes, speed 9.
Step 3. Add remaining dry ingredients to the TM bowl and mix for 20 seconds, speed 4. Pour the dry mixture into a separate bowl.
Step 4. Cut the vanilla bean lengthways and scrape out the seeds. Add to the empty TM bowl. Add remaining wet ingredients, except the milk, and puree for 20 seconds, speed 8, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
Step 5. Add milk and mix for a further 10 seconds, speed 7.
Step 6. Set TM to speed 3 and gradually add the flour mixture. Then mix for a further 35 seconds at speed 5. Scrape down the sides of the TM bowl and mix again for 15 seconds, speed 5.
Step 7. 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 8. 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.


For conversion to another food processor, Speed 1 is low speed and Speed 10 is the highest. 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.
