  • ½ cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 medium ripe bananas
  • cup melted coconut oil
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup roughly chopped walnuts
  • ½ cup coconut flakes


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.

  2. To a liquid measuring cup, measure non-dairy milk and whisk in apple cider vinegar. Let sit for 5 minutes. In a large mixing bowl, mash ripe bananas until mostly smooth. Add milk mixture, melted coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla, and coconut sugar. Whisk until smooth.

  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes until top is golden brown and toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before slicing.
