Vegan Banana Bread

This Vegan Banana Bread is flourless, gluten-free, 1 bowl and is so simple, quick and easy to make. Unlike a regular banana bread, this recipe uses creamy vanilla custard for added moisture and flavour and a taste of my childhood in England. The infamous banana custard combo we all loved back in the day!

  • 3 bananas
  • 200 g ground oats
  • 75 ml rapeseed oil
  • 200 ml vegan custard
  • 100 g ground almonds
  • 50 g chopped walnuts
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate soda


  • Preheat oven to 180C.
  • Mash 2 of the bananas and beat with the other ingredients (except walnuts and remaining banana) until smooth, sticky batter results.
  • Pour into a loaf tin lined with greaseproof paper.
  • Slice the last banana in half and place on top of the batter and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Allow to cool before serving


  • Oat flour can be subbed with gluten-free flour, wheat flour and other flours. If using almond flour, use a 50/50 combo with another flour such as coconut flour.
  • Other ingredients and flavour combos can be used such as dried fruit, chocolate chips, nuts, coconut etc
  • Protein powder can also be added to give a protein boost – though weight added in protein powder should be taken from the weight of either the wholewheat or oat flours (or any other type of flour used)
  • Rapeseed oil can be replaced with other oils such as olive oil
