5 from 2 reviews

A rich gluten-free banana bread with triple the chocolate. Moist, delicious vegan banana bread recipe, made without refined sugar.


Bread Ingredients:

  • 4 ripe bananas (I used frozen ones that I thawed out)
  • ½ cup olive oil (or any other baking oil)
  • 1 cup maple syrup (or another liquid sweetener)
  • ¾ cup non-dairy milk (I used almond milk)
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • ½ cup buckwheat flour
  • ½ cup potato starch
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp guar gum
  • 1 ½ tsp gluten-free baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chunks (chocolate chips would work too)

Chocolate Topping Ingredients:


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a bread loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place bananas, olive oil, non-dairy milk, maple syrup, and vanilla in a food processor and blend until smooth.
  3. Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add all remaining bread ingredients, except chocolate chunks, and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon. Fold in chocolate chunks.
  4. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out dry. Allow bread to cool for 10 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack or a serving dish to cool a bit more (unless you love your bread hot :) ).
  5. While cake is baking, prepare the chocolate topping by following the directions in this DIY Gluten-Free Vegan Magic Shell recipe (except you’re only making half the batch).
  6. Once the cake has cooled enough to your liking, drizzle with the chocolate topping and Enjoy! Refrigerate any leftovers.
