This recipe is a stripped-down banana bread, and I was inspired to make it via this recipe.  Not only are they full of potassium, but bananas also lend a little bit of vitamin B-6 and vitamin C to your diet, which is always nice.  I really like a nice banana bread treat, but I was becoming hesitant to make it because it had a lot of ingredients that weren’t the best to eat all the time (sugar, processed wheat flour, etc).  So, I came up with a version that is rich enough to be a dessert but also made up of good things that you won’t even think twice about having it for breakfast any day of the week. 🙂



Warm and Cozy Soynut Butter Banana Bread

Prep time: 10 minutes

Baking time: 30-35 minutes


  • 1 C Oat flour
  • 1/2 C. Rolled Oats.
  • 2 1/2 tsp. Baking powder
  • 2 ripe Bananas
  • 1/3 C Soynut Butter (Unsweetened)
  • 2/3 C Unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tbsp. Maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp. Grape seed oil
  • 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon (ground)
  • 1/4 tsp. Nutmeg (ground)
  • 1/4 tsp. Cloves (ground)
  • Handful Thompson raisins (organic) (or: cacao nibs/pumpkin seeds/coconut, etc!)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a small bowl, mash the bananas, and then combine in the soynut butter, applesauce, maple syrup and oil.
  3. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the remainder of the ingredients, and then add in the banana mixture.  (Until just combined).
  4. Pour the batter into a parchment-lined loaf tin.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the loaf no longer appears damp in the center (or internal temperature reaches 80C).
  6. Cool on a wire rack, and serve sliced.
  7. Bread stores well in an airtight container for 1-2 days, or in the freezer for 1-2 months.
