Easiest Ever Coconut Flour Banana Bread Bars

I'm trying not to eat very much white flour and sugar these days. But it's still fun to have a treat from time to time. Enter the Coconut Flour Banana Bread Bars. A super simple non-fussy recipe that you whip up and have in the oven in no time flat!! 

This Coconut Flour Banana Bread recipe is:

  • Gluten-free and grain-free
  • Naturally sweetened, with the option of using NO added sugar if you prefer
  • Oil-free
  • Nut-free 
  • Fast to prepare! The batter can be ready in just 10 minutes before baking it.
  • Higher in protein
  • Super-moist and delicious!
You couldn't ask for an easier recipe! Since they are super-moist I prefer to eat them chilled because it firms them up. Otherwise, it's super similar (I think) to banana bread made with flour. 


3 very ripe bananas 
3/4 cup coconut flour 
5 large eggs 
5 tablespoons coconut sugar (optional)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
1 teaspoon baking soda 
1 teaspoon baking powder 
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar


1 - Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a square  9 x 9 cake pan with parchment paper.

2 - In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Add in the coconut flour, eggs, coconut sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, salt, vanilla, and apple cider vinegar. Use a whisk to stir the batter well, breaking up any lumps so a smooth batter is formed. (You can also use an electric hand or stand mixer to do this which is my preferred method.)

3 - Pour the batter into the lined cake pan, smooth the batter so it is level in the pan and bake until the center of the loaf has risen, feeling firm to the touch, 30 minutes. Cool completely before slicing and serving.

4 - Because this loaf is moist, be sure to store it in an airtight container in the fridge for best shelf life. It should last at least a week when stored in the fridge, though you might eat it all before then!

The batter is thick so you'll have to spread it into your pan corners! 

Ready for the oven! 

30 minutes later! 

Sliced and ready for snacking! 

The perfect anytime treat!
