Eating this delicious banana bread will probably remind you of a giant oatmeal chocolate chip cookie…

And you’ll still be dreaming about it for days after it’s gone, wishing you could have some more.

Without any flour weighing down the recipe, the sweetness of the bananas really shines through.

Wholesome oats add substance, giving this bread its deliciously hearty texture.

And of course chocolate chips make everything taste even better… although the flourless banana bread is actually really good even without them!

You can also add raisins, shredded coconut, cinnamon, walnuts, or even dried cranberries for a Fall-ish banana bread.

The first step to making the flourless banana bread is to put the oats in a blender and blend until a fine powder forms.

This is what you’re using instead of flour in the recipe. Or for grain free, you could do the same thing with quinoa flakes if you’d prefer.

I also am working on a banana bread recipe using almond flour, so hopefully that one will be posted soon!

    BEST BANANA RECIPE EVER!!! Other than that it uses healthy ingredients, it was super chewy!! Just the texture I wanted. Now I don’t have to buy bread anymore! Will use this as an alternative :))

    I’ve probably made this banana bread recipe over 20 times… I am not a baker but I love making this bread and my husband loves it too. It is our go to for a sweet and healthy dessert. I love the gooey texture and that it is made with healthy ingredients with no compromise on flavour. Thank you for posting this recipe and for all the yummy evenings we’ve had because of it.

    This was awesome! I try lots of different banana or pumpkin breads for my kids and some are not that great but this was awesome and SO EASY to make! Great texture.
    I only used 1/4 cup honey and that was sweet enough for us (but we’re used to things not too sweet)
    I also added half a cup of walnuts into the mix and then just a few dark choc melts on top.

    Love it! Thank you

    Finally a banana bread recipe where you got the baking temp and time right!!! I always seem to over or undercook mine. Very clever to turn the oven off (the last ten minutes).

    I added brown sugar to mine, but next time I might add a little more (did not add the chocolate chips this time). Overall great job! Thanks.
