We love new recipes for a lazy Sunday morning at home. One of my favorite things to do is bake, but I like it to be easy. After making this delicious banana bread several times, in the forms of muffins, and then bread, I’ve decided it’s one of our family favorites!

This recipe is not gluten free for a very specific reason. Late last year both our daughters were diagnosed with potato intolerance. This meant that many of the foods we were eating were off limits- including most all gluten free flours. So we use just potato free wheat flour instead and the stomach aches around the house have all but disappeared!

We also love nuts, dehydrated fruits, and of course dark chocolate which we added to it! This is what I call The Works!

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 16-18 minutes

Serves: 6


  • 2 cups of organic wheat flour

  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 1 cup of milk of choice, we like coconut cream.

  • 1 egg

  • 2 ripe bananas, smashed

  • 1 tbsp baking powder (aluminum free and potato free)

  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • Dark chocolate chips, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, almonds, dried cherries, fresh blueberries (really anything you like).


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Oil

  • Combine all ingredients with exeption of the nuts, seed, chocolate, berries etc. We use our Vitamix, fluids first, or use a hand mixer or standing mixer.

  • Mix until batter is smooth.

  • Pour batter into bread pan and gently fold in chocolate chips or blueberries and then top with nuts and dried fruit (if desired).

  • Bake for 16-18 minutes or until bread has risen and is slightly browned.

  • Let cool for 15-30 minutes, slice, and enjoy with some butter!

  • Delicious.
