Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 10 slices


2 cups almond meal

¾ cup walnuts, chopped

½ cup shredded coconut

1 tbsp chia seeds

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp ground cinnamon

Pinch sea salt

3 eggs

2 tbsp natural nut butter

2 tbsp coconut oil, melted

2 medium ripe bananas, mashed

1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Lightly grease and line the base and sides of a 10cm x 20cm loaf pan with baking paper. 
  2. Place almond meal, walnuts, coconut, chia, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Stir to combine.
  3. Whisk eggs, nut butter, coconut oil, banana and vanilla in a large jug until well combined. Add to dry ingredients and mix well with a wooden spoon until very well combined. Pour mixture into prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Remove. Cool completely in pan.
  5. Serve banana bread in thick slices.


Serve slices plain or toasted with butter or yoghurt and a drizzle of honey. 

Peanut butter and almond butter work well in this recipe. 

Natural nut butters don’t contain industrial seed oils or refined sugar. They are simply a mix of nuts and sea salt, making it a lot healthier to eat and digest. They are widely available at supermarkets and grocers.
