Gluten free Banana Bread is perfect for so many reasons.

Thanks so much to MoM Member Rachael for sharing her delicious recipe for gluten free banana bread. A banana bread without the flour, butter or sugar!

Now that is a win, win, win in our books.

What do we love about this Gluten Free Banana Bread recipe?

  1. It’s gluten free!  Hee hee, of course it is!
  2. The addition of rolled oats packs in a whole bunch of good for you dietary fibre.  We like Uncle Toby’s Traditional Rolled Oats for everything but particularly baking.
  3. We love that the coconut oil works in place of butter
  4. We love the crunch of the walnuts
  5. We love the spiciness of the cinnamon

Which bananas are best for this Gluten Free Banana Bread?

The wonderful thing about any banana bread is that it’s a great way to use up bananas that everyone is avoiding.  You know, the bananas that start to get a little spotty on their skins.  Or worse still, the bananas you’ve popped into the fridge which are perfectly fine inside but the skins have gone black!

Whether you have Cavendish, Lady Finger or Red Tipped Bananas at home, any of these will be fine.

Our only suggestion is that you avoid using bananas that are not ripe or only just ripening.  They will be a little too light on flavour to shine through in a recipe.

  • Looks yummy, thanks for sharing your recipe


  • Oats are not gluten free and this recipe should not be labelled as such. This could make someone with coeliac disease quite unwell.



  • Can’t wait to try this banana bread recipe. Just need to wait until I can get some coconut oil.


  • My friend who must eat gluten-free, hates bananas!!!


  • My niece is going to love this


  • Thank you for healthy banana bread rceipe.


  • I am coeliac and have been told oats are not Gluten free


  • I love cinamone …not sure if i will add that much….


  • Delicious!! yum!


  • OATS ?????? What oats are GF


  • As others have commented, the cinnamon amount is alot. Will reduce it. Thanks for the awesome recipe.


  • I always make cake I would love to make this tha ks


  • This looks awesome but 3 Tablespoons of cinnamon sounds like a tonne …is that correct?
    3 ripe bananas
    3 cups oats
    3 eggs
    1/3 cup coconut oil
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp salt
    3 Tbsp cinnamon
    2 Tbsp honey
    1/4 cup chopped walnuts

    or should it be 3 teaspoons? Thanks.

    • Yes, that’s what I was thinking as well. I can imagine 1 tbsp or 3 tsp, but 3 tbsp ?? Just reduce it and taste it I would say :)


  • I’d love to try this but can’t buy coconut oil from our local shop. Will have to place on the back burner


  • Yummy, only what could you use instead of walnuts. I like to give my son banana bread for school & they are very finicky about any kind of nut

    • You could use sunflower- or pumpkin seeds as alternative to make a nut free version.

      • Love the idea of sunflower seeds instead of walnuts. Our school is allergy awareness so not able to have any nuts. I think 3 tsp of cinnamon would be good but not. 3 Tb
