  • 7 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 3/4 cups coconut sugar
  • 2 cups vegetable oil
  • 5 eggs, room temp
  • 3 cups almond meal
  • 3/4 cup plain gluten free flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarb soda
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 2 tsp mixed spice
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 tsp cardamon
  • 2 ripe bananas sliced length ways to put on top of cake


  1. Preheat oven to 160C

  2. Line and spray two loaf tins

  3. Mash bananas well, set aside

  4. In an electric mixing bowl, combine eggs, oil and sugar. Mix on lowest speed until combined.

  5. Slowly add the sifted almond meal and gf flour, baking soda, bicarb soda and spices until its all incorporated. Scrape sides of bowl as necessary.

  6. Turn mixer off and use a spatula to fold in bananas. (Add any extras at this point)

  7. Carefully divide mixture into two loaf pans. Place sliced lengths of bananas on top of each loaf and sprinkle with coconut sugar.

  8. Bake in oven for approximately 35 minutes or until brown,firm to touch and a skewer comes out clean. Note that the temp is 160C, slightly less than a moderate oven. This is to ensure the top does not burn. If loaves are not cooked after 35 min, keep checking every 5 minutes. Leave on a wire wrack to cool.

  9. Banana bread will keep in a sealed container or glass lidded cake stand for about a week. After a few days its reeeeally nice toasted and served with butter. Yum!
