Dairy Free Banana Bread

Banana bread is my most favourite way of using up bananas that have gone a bit mushy – rather than throw them away,  I always try to make something. I also had some coconut oil to use up, so I made some super moist and super easy banana bread which is also dairy free! The kids loved it too – it was amazing warm from the oven, but equally delicious eaten for breakfast the next morning with a topping of your choice.




  • 100g coconut oil
  • 200g soft brown sugar
  • 4 small, very ripe bananas; mashed.
  • 210g plain flour
  • 2 eggs, gently whisked
  • 1 tsp bicarb
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 180C, Gas Mark 4
  • Grease a 2lb loaf tin (also works in a small roasting tin, if you’ve not got one – just check on the bread after 30 minutes)
  • If your coconut oil is still solid, heat it up gently in a microwave/pan or bain-marie as it’s easier to combine. It literally only needs 20 seconds in the microwave.
  • Add the oil to the sugar and mix well.
  • Add the salt, vanilla, eggs and banana. Beat until everything is combined.
  • Sift in the flour and bicarb and fold in gently.
  • spoon into the loaf tin and bake for around 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the bread.
  • Serve warm or leave to cool.



Serving suggestions:

  1. Warm with ice cream/dairy-free alterative
  2. Toasted with honey or butter/dairy-free alternative (It is particularly delicious with a nut butter)
