Recipe: Chocolate Chip Tahini Banana Bread (GF & DF)!

Alright, this recipe blows my mind! It’s completely gluten free, dairy free, and lower in sugar than your average loaf. Not only that, it’s loaded with tons of healthy fats & nutrients from the almonds & tahini. It’s truly a decadent treat well worth making anytime! I might even go as far to say it’s the best banana loaf I’ve ever tried – but I’ll let you be the judge of that 🙂


– 3 very ripe bananas
– 2 pasture raised eggs
– 1/4 cup olive oil
– 1/4 cup raw cane sugar
– 1/4 cup tahini
– 2 Tbsp maple syrup 
– 1 cup almond flour
– 1.5 cup oats (ground into flour)
– 2 tsp baking powder
– 1 tsp baking soda
– 1/2 tsp sea salt
– 1 Tbsp. Flax seed
Mix ins
– 1 cup chocolate chips (could sub for berries or walnuts in stead)


– Place all wet ingredients into a vitamix or blender and blend until well combined
– Place all dry ingredients into a bowl and mix
– Add wet to dry, stirring until just combined
– Fold in chocolate chips
– Place in a prepared 9 x5 loaf pan
– Top with extra oats and chocolate chips as a garnishh on top
– Bake at 325°F convection for 40-50 min. You will know it is finished if you insert a butter knife in the middle and it comes out fairly clean. You can also lightly pat the top of the loaf with your hand – it should slightly spring back to you
– Allow to cool before cutting into and enjoying!

NOTE: I haven’t tried substitutions of different types of flour, but you’re welcome to do so. However, I HIGHLY recommend sticking with the flours this recipe as it calls for as the almond and oat seem to balance each other out so nicely!
