I love making banana bread, the addition of the banana instantly gives the cake a lovely moist texture and great flavour. I’ve added in some chopped walnuts and dairy free chocolate chips to make this banana bread a little bit more special.




  • 110g dairy free spread
  • 110g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 125g gluten free self-raising flour
  • 75g ground rice or ground almonds
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 150g dairy free chocolate chips
  • 100g chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 oC
  2. Grease and line a 900g loaf tin
  3. Cream the dairy free spread and sugar together until light and fluffy
  4. Add the eggs, beating well between each addition
  5. Mash the bananas and add to the mixing bowl
  6. Add in the dry ingredients and mix well
  7. Stir through the chopped walnuts and chocolate chips
  8. Pour the cake mix into the loaf tin
  9. Bake in the oven for 70 minutes
  10. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before slicing
