Cinnamon Swirl

  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Grease a bread loaf pan generously with coconut oil, or place parchment paper in the loaf pan.
  • In a small bowl, take three peeled, ripe bananas, and mash well.
  • In a separate medium size mixing bowl combine the oat flour, baking soda, and sea salt.
  • Next in a stand mixing bowl, add the eggs, coconut sugar, almond butter, coconut oil, almond milk, vanilla extract, and mashed bananas. Mix well until evenly combined.
  • Once your wet mixture is combined, add the dry mixture slowly, stirring on low until the wet and dry ingredients have been combined.
  • If you would like to add nuts to your banana bread you can add them to the mixture at this time.
  • At this point take your banana bread batter and pour it evenly into your greased loaf pan.
  • Next, in a small bowl mix together all the ingredients for the cinnamon swirl.
  • Taking a spoon, swirl the cinnamon swirl mixture into the banana bread batter. Be careful not to stir it in too much, you want to be able to see the swirl.
  • Optional: Slice a banana length wise and place on top of the banana bread mixture.
  • Place in the oven for 50-60 minutes, or until top begins to brown and the bread is evenly cooked through.
  • Allow to cool entirely before serving.
