Healthy Sugar Free Banana Loaf Recipe

Truly sugar-free banana cake

A few weeks ago, I was working at the Woburn Tri for Life, and at the end of a very successful day, we had masses of bananas left. After eating a banana a day for a few days, the rest of the bananas I took home were a little too ripe to my taste (I do like them just yellow from green), so I decided to bake a banana loaf.

I have two recipes, one with sugar and butter, one with coconut oil and dates, but I really wanted one with no sugar at all. After all, ripe bananas are very sweet. I did some research on the internet, and I was really surprised to see how many recipes came up “pretending” they were sugar-free, but just swapping the sugar to honey, maple syrup, or agave syrup and other sweeteners.

Although honey is healthier than sugar (and that depends on the amount of processing of the honey), it has the same effect on blood sugar levels and insulin release than sugar.

Here is my truly sugar-free banana loaf recipe which still tastes amazing and is much healthier than any other you will find.

Raw ingredients healthy snack


  • 6-7 overripe bananas, previously frozen and defrosted
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of gluten-free self raising flour (this is what I used but regular self-raising flour will work fine too)
  • 2/3 cup of walnut pieces
