flourless chocolate chip banana bread

I was going to start this post with a killer opener like: “banana bread recipes are like little black dresses – everyone needs a good one in their arsenal…” but then I realized that it wouldn’t necessarily apply to the handful of male readers I have (Hi! I know you’re there!!), and I didn’t want to be rude and exclude anyone. SO! let’s modify that statement to something boringly generic like “everyone needs a good banana bread recipe in their arsenal” and talk about what brought about the LBD analogy instead.

So I was cleaning out my closet the other day (it’s an obsession – I hate clutter), when I realized that 90% of my clothes were either black or dark gray. No joke – a solid 90%. I do have a tiny little section in the back corner devoted to my neglected pinks, corals, and whites, but I honestly can’t even remember the last time I reached for them… and judging by the comments I get about “needing to add more colour to [my] wardrobe because [I’m] not goth or attending a funeral,” it’s probably safe to say that no one else can remember either.

BUT! In my defence, I do make an effort with more colourful accessories. Sometimes ?


  • 3/4 cup (60 g) oats, quick or old-fashioned
  • 2 medium, ripe bananas (200 g or 1 cup mashed)
  • 1/4 cup (64 g) nut/seed butter*
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) coconut palm sugar**
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (85 g) chocolate chips


  1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF (176ºC), and lightly grease a 9 x 5 (23cm x 13cm) bread pan or line it with a sheet or parchment paper, leaving a few inches of overhang for easy removal. Set aside.
  2. Add the oats to the bowl of a high-speed blender or food processor and process on high until they've broken down into a fine powder, about 2 minutes. Add all the remaining ingredients except for the chocolate chips and continue processing until the batter is smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes.*** Fold in the chocolate chips by hand.
