Dairy Free Banana Bread

Dairy Free Banana Bread

Dairy free banana bread is most definitely healthy enough to eat for breakfast, but it still feels like such a treat. This healthy recipe is refined sugar free but still has plenty of sweetness from both the bananas and the date paste. The walnuts add a lovely crunch and flavour contrast to this dairy free banana bread. It also happens to be gluten free so it ‘s a great recipe if you need to accommodate various dietary restrictions.

I opted to use extra virgin olive oil in this dairy free banana bread, as I often do when baking. It’s my go-to baking oil these days because I love the warm rich flavour it adds to baked goods, plus it’s healthier than many other fats. If you prefer the flavour of a different oil or melted butter, those would certainly work as substitutes.

I like baking with oat flour because it’s so nutritious, gluten free (provided you buy oats labelled gluten free), and I love the flavour it adds. To make oat flour at home, just fill your food processor or high powered blender with rolled oats and process for a couple of minutes. Then store the oat flour in the pantry or fridge.
