  • 3 ripe bananas or 1 ½ cups mashed
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour or oat flour
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tsp baking soda

Optional Flavorings:

  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • mix-ins of choice i.e., chopped walnuts or pecans, chocolate chips, raisins, etc.


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Prepare 9x5-inch loaf pan with foil or parchment and spray with cooking spray.
  • Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. (If desired, stir in any mix-ins, or sprinkle on any toppings.)
  • Bake 45-50 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. (This is the suggested bake time based on my oven, but it may vary. If it's your first time making this recipe, I recommend checking your loaf's doneness around 25-30 minutes.)
  • Allow to cool completely before cutting.
  • Store in an airtight container on the counter up to 3 days or in the fridge for a week.
