Clean Banana breadHello Clean Eaters.  Today I would like to share one of my top favourite recipes Clean Banana bread!  I have made it today as my post run reward and breakfast at the same time and you can just imagine how fast I was running to get home to this lovely treat. Yummy, moist, dairy free, gluten free, refined sugar free and even with no added sugar if you want to. The whole family loves it and each time I make it it goes missing within a few hours.

Clean and moist banana breadHere is the recipe, it is very simple. Basically throwing ingredients together and then popping it in the oven 🙂 This is exactly how I like it, no fuss , yet tasty and delicious.

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Touch of nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup of brown rice syrup or maple syrup (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 190c.
  2. In a bowl, mix together all dry ingredients and set aside.In a separate bowl, mash the bananas and add all the wet ingredients. 
  3. Combine both bowls together and pour into a greased baking dish.
  4. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
Enjoy with strawberries and touch of almond butter nom nom! Also don’t forget to check my chocolate banana bread! If you do  make it post me a photo on my Clean Eating Facebook page

    Just made this and was amazing!! I used coconut sugar instead of honey and sunflower seeds instead of raisins because thats what I had in the cupboard. Loved it, thanks for sharing 🙂

    Hedi, could I use coconut flour as that’s what I have in the cupboard?! X

      Hello Donna, coconut flour is not good, it is very dense and requires a lot of moisture. You could use wholewheat flour , almond flour or spelt flour. Hope this helps Donna. Hedi xxx

    I have tried a lot of banana breads in my life because I believe that banana bread can be a sensible carb if it is low in refined sugar, or even non sweet as bananas are very sweet, and if the flour is nutritious and not too refined, and by far this is the best recipe of all. Even better than the bread sold in organic stores. This one beats then by a mile in taste, texture and overall wholesomeness. This is a bread I can devour without guilt and is something I can take to work, use as a pre work out snack, or serve with guests over for tea. I am so grateful to have found this Heidi as it will be in my arsenal of awesomeness. Thank you. BTW I also added a 1/4 cup of shredded coconut, 2 tablespoons of flax seeds and 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds (as this combo is always good when one is trying to eat clean and are vegetarian or vegan).

    Hi. What am I doing wrong? I made this the other day and it was a disaster!
    The final batter seemed very sloppy but I trusted the stuck to the recipe. After baking for the suggested amount of time the top of the loaf was nicely golden but when I skewered into the middle it was still raw. I baked for a little while longer until the top was a lot browner than I would have liked and when taking it out of the oven it was still very wet in the middle. It was inedible.
    Any advice as I would like to try this again, please?

      Oh no! So sorry to hear about your troubles Zena. Judging by your comment I think you need to leave it in the oven a bit longer. How about you decrease the temperature a bit and leave it for longer? Very hard for me to say because every oven works differently. Hedi xxx

    Hi Hedi. This banana bread is now a family favourite healthy snack! Do you know roughly how many calories there are in the loaf? Thanks, Emily

    I had some bananas I was about to throw away (they were the spottiest, blackest bananas I’ve ever seen!) but on a whim thought I’d try this recipe… O.M.G!!
    Seriously, it was SO sweet and delicious. I used spelt flour as I didn’t have any buckwheat and it’s fantastic… I’m struggling not to rush back to the kitchen to gobble up a few more slices!

    Thanks so much Hedi

      Hahahaha I hear you Jo, I am very similar. I find it difficult not to eat it all. I often have to wait before I take pictures, but that can take a long time if there is no sun outside and I have a bad lighting for shooting pictures. Try to chocolate banana bread too, even more addictive. Hedi xxx

    I don’t know how many times I have already done this bread! Another one in the oven!! Is so so good, thanks Hedi for the recipe! I’m not adding any sugar, find bananas sweet enough. My favourite dry fruit are prunes and dates so I cut them in (always using my kitchen scissors) and instead almonds adding sunflower seeds and cashew nuts. My favourite breakfast, snack and treat! Thanks so much 😊
