Nutrition Best Banana Bread Ever

Best Banana Bread Ever


By Pamela Santaluce

A perfect loaf for breakfast or snack that’s full of so much goodness. I love my bread in the mornings and I especially love anything with raisins or carrots. You can enjoy this all on its own. This is a dairy-, egg- and wheat-free loaf and you may omit the walnuts if you’d like it to be nut-free.

  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 and a half ripe bananas
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil OR olive oil (both work well)
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 3/4 grated organic carrots and 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional) and 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut (optional)


  1. blend oats until they become a flour texture
  2. add bananas
  3. add cinnamon/baking soda/baking powder/oil of choice and maple syrup and blend all well
  4. with spatula stir in grated carrots/walnuts/raisins/coconut flakes
  5. place mixture in a lined baking pan (I used a 9×5 in. pan)
  6. bake @350f for 25-30min.
