"Fluffy, tender, lightly sweetened banana bread studded with blueberries. Made healthier with whole grains and oil-free, but still addictingly delicious."

Recipe Card


  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons soy milk
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2/3 cup oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • a dash of cinnamon, and nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon whole wheat pastry flour


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a loaf pan or line with parchment paper and set aside.

  • Step 2

    For a fuller banana flavor, mash bananas and let them sit out a couple hours before baking.

  • Step 3

    In a large bowl, mix together bananas, sugar, and almond butter. Add applesauce, vinegar, soy milk, and almond extract and mix.

  • Step 4

    Add remaining ingredients, except blueberries and 1 tbsp flour, to a separate bowl and mix until well incorporated.

  • Step 5

    Coat blueberries with remaining 1 tbsp of flour.

  • Step 6

    Add dry ingredients to wet and mix until just combined and moistened. Gently stir in blueberries. Do not overmix.

  • Step 7

    Pour batter into loaf pan and bake for 1 hour if using a 9" pan, or 80-90 minutes for an 8" pan. Bread is done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean (or very few crumbs; the batter should not still be wet). Let the bread cool completely before cutting.
