  • 2 1/2 cups oat flour* (use gluten-free certified oats, see note below*)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup mashed bananas (from about 2 very ripe bananas)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla (make sure it's gluten-free)
  • 1/3 cup vegan chocolate chunks (also make sure gluten-free)


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a loaf pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together oat flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and ground cinnamon until combined.
  • In a small bowl, combine mashed bananas, apple sauce, maple syrup and vanilla.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients.
  • Stir with a spoon until combined.
  • Gently stir in the chocolate chunks.
  • Bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes**, until the top is lightly browned and a knife comes out clean when inserted into the bread. Cool for at least 10-15 minutes before cutting.


*To make oat flour, grind gluten-free certified oats in a food processor until completely ground. Slightly more than 2 1/2 cups of oats will give you the full 2 1/2 cups of oat flour needed for this recipes.
**This bread is a bit shorter than some other banana bread recipes. Meaning it will cook in less time. 30-35 minutes seems to be the sweet spot but all ovens vary.
