Byron Bay Banana Bread

Tiger nut flour is such an amazing flour to use for baking because it stays moist, and for this bread, you don’t need to add any extra sweetener- the natural sweetness of bananas and the flour are taking care of that. This recipe was created by some lovely tiger nut friends down under at Byron Bay Alive Foods, and it is so easy, healthy and delicious we just had to share it with you all here!


3-4 large very ripe bananas, plus 1 extra for decoration

1 ½ cups Tiger Nuts Flour 

½ c green banana flour or almond meal

4 large eggs

4 tbsp coconut oil or butter

1 ½ tsp baking powder

1 tsp ground cinnamon OR 2 drops each of cinnamon & cardamon therapeutic grade essential oil (optional)

1 tbsp raw honey for drizzling


Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. In a blender, add all ingredients except baking powder. Blend until smooth, then add baking powder and blitz through. Pour in a rectangle baking tin lined with baking paper. Thinly slice the extra banana and decorate on top of the batter. Drizzle with an extra spoon of honey.

Bake for about 20 minutes until lightly browned on top and a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Serve with grass-fed butter or coconut butter if you prefer. Really nice toasted as well!
