Flourless Banana Bread

by Kristen


This business called food blogging can be so funny. Last week, I was scrambling, because I can think of Nothing fresh and exciting to make. And then today, I think of literally five new recipes that I can’t wait to try. This idea of flourless banana bread popped into my head this morning while I was driving my older son to preschool.  I came home as fast as I could to try it. And it turned out so goodI was a little afraid I would eat the whole pan before anyone else would ever see them. For this recipe, I based it off of my Flourless Sweet Potato Brownies.  But using different nut butter, used bananas instead of sweet potatoes, and didn’t add the chocolate. bananabread10202

There is no flour, no sugar, and no butter or oil in this recipe.  They are moist and sweet.  Bananas are sweet enough, so no added sugar is required.  My husband thought that maybe they could have been a little too moist in the middle.  If you are a bit wary of your bread being so, you know, flourless, then I would add 1 cup of cooked quinoa to the mixture.  That way, you will achieve more texture. I turned chopped walnuts into a nut butter using my food processor.  I believe it’s the walnuts that make this recipe taste like traditional banana bread.



Flourless Banana Bread

Prep time: Cook time: Total time: Serves: 12 squares


1 1/2 cups of chopped walnuts 1/3 cup of almond butter three bananas one teaspoon natural vanilla extract one teaspoon baking soda one egg



In your food processor, pulverize your walnuts until they turn into a butter.

Add Almond Butter and mix more. Add bananas, vanilla, baking soda, and egg. Mix in the mixer until blended.   Line an 8X8 pan with parchment paper. Pour the mixture in the pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Let cool before cutting into your banana bread.




I think that this banana bread would be tasty with any nut butter, but I think to add the walnuts add an exceptional taste.  Also, I know some of my readers have made the Flourless sweet potato brownies with two eggs.  So, I don’t think that would be inappropriate either. Let me know how you like this bread:)

THis was so delicious. I didn’t have any walnuts, so I used pecans instead. I also added an extra egg. They were so perfect!

OMG!!! You saved my sweet tooth today. I came home and was craving sweet. Lucked up on your recipe and sent the hubby for bananas and walnuts. This is amazing. I added 2 dates and just 1/2 tbsp of agave. I really don’t think it needed it for my taste but wanted my son and husband to enjoy and knew they would need a little extra. This is great and can’t wait to try your other recipes!

Yay! I am so happy you liked this recipe! I love the idea of adding dates! Have a great day!

I really do love banana bread. I love that your recipe is gluten free too so that coeliacs and also eat it. I also like the fact that you’ve added walnuts for some extra texture and crunch. This looks so delicious and thank you for sharing the recipe.

Thank you for sharing your recipe. I have it in the oven as I type. I tasted the batter and ended up adding 3 tsp of sugar and a pinch of salt. If the cook banana bread is 1/2 as good as the raw batter. It’s going to be great.

I’m totally loving this recipe for banana bread, it looks absolutely scrumptious and since I try to avoid flour, I think I’ll definitely be giving this a try! It looks so moist and dense, I bet some chocolate chips would make it super delish! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

Wow this sounds amazing! I love that you made a flourless banana bread, perfect for those who are gluten free. Plus the almond butter and walnuts sound like they would be a great way to crunch up the bread.

This is one recipe that I will definitely try making because my family loves banana bread, but I want it gluten free! Thanks for sharing! Love it!

I never would have thought to try flourless breads! Your bread looks delicious and sounds like it would be just as delicious. I never thought to make walnut butter before I need to try that out.
