  • 1 cup (140 g) cassava flour
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons (75 g) banana flour
  • 1 teaspoon (5 g) baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon (4 g) baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon (2.6 g) ground cinnamon
  • cup (60 g) unsweetened dark chocolate chips
  • Pinch of kosher or fine sea salt
  • 2 medium bananas
  • ½ cup (118 mL) milk of choice (I prefer plant milk. I used flax milk but you can use oat, almond, coconut, etc.)
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ teaspoon (2.5 mL) pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup (118 mL) pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup (64 g) peanut butter or sunflower seed butter (or other nut butter, if desired)


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease a standard bread loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients.
  • In a separate bowl, mash the bananas. Add the remaining wet ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir to combine. Don't over mix.
  • Pour the batter into the bread pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean and the top of the bread is nice and golden. Allow the banana bread to cool completely before slicing and enjoying.
  • Store, covered, on the counter for up to 3 days or freeze for later.
