  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1/3 C coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 C unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/3 C maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 3 1/2 C flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 C chopped walnuts (optional)
Optional Topping
  • 1 ripe banana cut into thin slices
  • 1 Tbsp demerara sugar or raw sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Mash the bananas in a medium size mixing bowl with a wooden spoon. Pour in the oil, butter, syrup, and vanilla. Stir to combine. Add the egg and stir again until the liquid ingredients are well-incorporated.
  3. Stir in 2 1/2 cups of the flour and the baking powder, soda, salt and cinnamon. Add the remaining flour, then the chopped walnuts if you are using them, and stir just until no streaks of flour remain.
  4. Grease a loaf pan and pour in the banana bread mixture. Optional topping: Place thin slices of banana in three rows down the top of the dough. Sprinkle the top with demerara or raw sugar for a little extra sweetness and crunch.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
