Vegan chocolate chip banana bread (Gluten & dairy free)

I absolutely love banana bread, it’s definitely my favourite way to use up those brown bananas! I do already have a super easy gluten and dairy free banana bread recipe on my website which you can find by clicking here however, I have been working on a vegan recipe which I have finally perfected, it’s gluten free too of course. It’s ideal if you are vegan or not able to eat eggs! My favourite way to eat it is warm out of the oven, topped with peanut butter.

To make my banana bread you will need a standard 900g loaf tin, you can click here to purchase one if you don’t already have one! If you do make this recipe, don’t forget to tag me in your photos over on social media!

Vegan banana bread (gluten free)

Prep Time10 minutes
Cook Time40 minutes
Servings: 8


  • 3 large ripe bananas
  • 105 g light brown sugar
  • 80 ml sunflower oil
  • 240 g gluten free self raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 70 g vegan chocolate chips
  • 50 g vegan white chocolate chips (optional but delicious)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Pre heat your oven to 180°C and grease and line a loaf tin.
  • Add your bananas to a large mixing bowl and mash with a fork. Add your sunflower oil, light brown sugar and vanilla extract and mix well.
  • Add your self raising flour, baking powder and cinnamon, mixing until fully combined.
  • Stir in your chocolate chips and then transfer the mixture into your lined loaf tin.
  • Bake in the oven for around 40 minutes, until golden brown on the top and an inserted knife comes out clean. You may need to cover the top for the last 10 minutes to prevent the cake from burning.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool before slicing and enjoying!

    I am using your gluten-free & dairy free baking book and I would love to try the simple banana bread recipe to use up bananas, but I have not been able to find a gluten-free flour that is self-raising in my area in Canada, is there something I can add to my gluten-free flour that will make it self-raising?

    Great recipes, thanks – Shirley

      Hi Shirley,
      You can also use a plain/all purpose gluten free flour blend and then add some baking powder 🙂

        Hi Angela,
        You can use a normal all purpose flour and add a couple of teaspoons of baking powder.
