Pecan Banana Bread (Vegan, Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free)


A blender, a hand blender (if necessary) and a rectangular baking mould.


  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 3 medjool dates
  • 3 tbsp flax seeds + 9 tbsp water
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup oat flour (simply blend 1/2 cup of oats into flour with your blender)
  • pinch of raw sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 20 pecans
  • 2 tbsp raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Blend your oats into flour and set aside.
  3. Mix flax seeds with water and blend until a gel-like consistency is formed and set aside. Note: you may want to use a hand blender for this. If the blades of your usual blender are above the flax-and-water level so that the mixture can't be blended properly, use a hand blender.
  4. Blend bananas and dates. This will work best with a high-speed blender.
  5. Now pour everything together in a bowl: oat flour, flax gel, banana-date puree, as well as almond flour, raw sea salt, cinnamon and baking soda. Mix it all together.
  6. Chop pecans and add to the mixture together with the raisins.
  7. Pour into a rectangular baking mould. You can add some extra pecans on top for decoration.
  8. Bake at 180°C for about 35 minutes.
