Easy Coconut Flour Banana Bread (Gluten Free, Vegan Option)

This coconut flour banana bread makes a super healthy and filling breakfast!  Filled with chocolate chips, spices, and nuts, this bread is ready in no time and can be made ahead and frozen for a quick breakfast on the go.


This banana bread is the perfect way to use up your over-ripe bananas!  We always seem to have tons of super ripe bananas around the house – one minute they are green and the next they have gone way past yellow 🙂

My mom never cooked all that much when I was growing up, but she loved making banana bread!  I remember having it a lot as a kid and getting super excited waiting for it in the oven.  She always added walnuts and chocolate chips, so to me no banana bread is complete without them!  I should really ask her for her recipe of it as well!


I wanted to make a healthier version, and used coconut flour as the base because we got a giant Costco-sized bag of it that I need to use up.  This can be used with flax egg or regular egg, so just a preference for what you would like.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Ferenheit, and line a bread loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, mash together bananas until they become smooth, and add the rest of the ingredients (including the chocolate chips and walnuts if you are usinand mix well to combine.
  • Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes until the middle begins to firm.  Test middle to ensure it is cooked through before removing from oven.  Cool completely before eating.


Notes: This recipe freezes very well - I sliced it into individual pieces and froze them until I wanted to eat them- just take them out of the freezer and place in the fridge the night before, and they will be defrosted in the morning
