  • 160 g (5,6oz) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon, (optional)
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 300 g overripe bananas, (= about 3 small bananas)
  • 3 tbsp (45ml/55g) maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp (45g) natural peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp (30ml/27g) sunflower oil , (or canola oil)
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, (or lemon juice)
  • 80 g (2,8oz) dark chocolate bar, chopped , + extra for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and grease a 9x5 inch (25x13cm) loaf pan with oil or vegan butter. Then line the pan with a strip of parchment paper.
  • To a medium-size bowl, add all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of sea salt. Mix with a whisk and set aside.
  • Add bananas to a large bowl and mash them well with a potato masher or fork into applesauce-like consistency. Add maple syrup, peanut butter, sunflower oil, and apple cider vinegar, and stir to combine.
  • Sift the flour mixture into the mashed banana mixture and mix everything with a spatula until just combined. Don’t overmix the batter. Finally, fold in chocolate chunks.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, spread it evenly, and top with more chocolate chunks. Bake it in preheated oven for 35 minutes. The bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. If it looks wet, bake for additional 5-10 minutes.
  • Remove the bread from the oven and let cool for about 15 minutes. Then carefully remove the bread with the parchment paper flaps on the sides and place it on a cooling rack to let cool completely.
  • Enjoy!



First, make sure the bread is completely cooled. Then store it (sliced or the whole loaf) in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days. You can also freeze the bread for up to 3 months.
