I was on a dairy free diet for a year. As a dessert lover, it was very difficult. Almost every recipe needs butter and milk. So, I turned my kitchen into a lab and started experimenting with different flavours and ingredients. This recipe is one of my favourites, I made it at least once a week and now that I can eat dairy again I still make it often.

This recipe is perfect if you don't have a mixer, it's very easy to mix by hand and you could have a fresh loaf of banana bread in less than 1 hour.

The cranberries and the bananas are the perfect match, they add a lot of flavour and colour to this dessert.

Step 1:

Gather your ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Step 2: ​Mix

In a bowl, mix the sugar and eggs, then add 1 cup of flour and oil. Finally add the rest of the flour and dry ingredients.

Mix until you have a smooth batter.

Step 3: Add Cranberries

Add the cranberries to the main mix. Or instead you could add chocolate chips, nuts, raisins. Mix.

Step 4:

In a different bowl mash the bananas.

Finally add the mashed bananas to the main bowl and mix.

Step 5: Bake and Enjoy

Coat a baking pan with oil and flour and pour the mix.

Bake for 45 min at 180 C.
