Banana Bread

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Servings 10 slices


  • 480-500 g really ripe bananas (optional - plus 1 extra banana to decorate)
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • ½ cup ground flax seed
  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp baking soda (or 2 tsp baking powder)
  • 1 squeeze lemon juice (only needed if using baking soda)


  • Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees.
  • Peel and mash bananas into a large bowl.
  • Add almond meal, ground flax, chia seeds, maple syrup, extra virgin olive oil, baking soda and lemon juice (lemon juice is needed to activate baking soda, if you use baking powder lemon juice isn't required).
  • Mix all ingredients together thoroughly.
  • Line a baking tin with baking paper and add mixture to the baking tin. Top mixture with 2 slices of banana or walnuts or coconut (optional and can be left with no topping).
  • Place in the oven and cook for 1 hour. Check cooked thoroughly by using a skewer or knife (should come out clear).
  • Allow too cool and enjoy.
  • Can also be stored in the freezer and I recommend slicing before freezing.
