  • 4 small ripe bananas
  • cup melted butter can sub coconut oil, but butter gives it the best flavor
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup brown rice flour
  • ¾ cup oat flour gluten-free
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts *optional, but amazing


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  
  • Mash bananas and mix with butter, in the bowl of an electric mixer, until smooth.  Add coconut sugar and egg.  Blend.  
  • Mix dry ingredients, except chocolate chips and nuts, with a whisk and add to the wet ingredients.  Mix until well incorporated and then stir in chocolate chips and nuts.  
  • Pour into 3 buttered mini loaf pans or into a muffin pan (makes about 18 muffins) and bake for 20 minutes (for muffins) and 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean, for mini loaves.  


  • Make sure that the butter is measured before melting.
  • I used 6x3.5x2 inch mini loaf pans for the bake time for this recipe. Adjust baking time accordingly for different size pans.
  • Gently stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts (if you're using them) so the batter doesn't become over mixed.
  • Let the loaves cool until they're comfortable to handle before slicing. For easier slicing, allow the bread to cool completely, then wrap in foil and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Remove and slice with a serrated knife.
