5 from 4 reviews

Sharing one of my favorite banana bread recipes from my bestie, this Birthday Cake Banana Bread. Made with all gluten-free ingredients.

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 60 mins
  • Total Time: 70 mins

Yield: 8-10 slices 1x


  • 1 stick (1/2 cup butter or sub vegan butter)*
  • 2 medium spotty bananas, mashed (or 3 smaller)
  • 2 eggs*
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup*
  • 1/4 cup yogurt of choice (can be dairy-free or dairy-based)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 1/4 cup gluten-free oat flour*
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Sprinkles of choice (I used these organic ones)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a bread/loaf pan with parchment paper
  2. In a small skillet begin to brown the butter by adding to a pan and melting over medium heat (stir occasionally) until butter starts to brown and has a “nutty” scent
  3. Allow the butter to cool for a few then whisk together the mashed bananas, eggs, syrup, yogurt, extract and butter until smooth
  4. Mix in the oat flour and baking powder until smooth and creamy
  5. Fold in sprinkles then add to loaf pan and bake in oven for about 1 hour (patience here.. I know!)
  6. Slice and enjoy!
