  • 3 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 3 cups (gluten free) oats
  • 1½ tsp (gluten free) baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar or coconut palm sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  1. Preheat oven to 170°C. Grease and line a 9” × 5″ loaf tin with baking paper.
  2. Make the oat flour: Place oats into a blender and process for 1-2 minutes until it resembles flour. Make sure all the oats are evenly ground.
  3. In a medium bowl whisk together the oat flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
  4. In a separate large bowl, mash the bananas with the sugar, vanilla extract, eggs and oil (make sure the oil is warm but not hot to avoid scrambling eggs) for 1-2 minutes until the consistency is smooth and creamy. Slowly add in oat flour mixture and mix until just combined.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf tin. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until knife inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool for 10-15 minutes, then remove from tin and place on wire rack until cold.
