Everyone loves a good banana loaf recipe – even more so when there’s a chocolate filling in the middle for a sneaky surprise! Topped with granola (or muesli), this would make a great energy-boosting snack on the go at any time of day and ideal for lunch boxes.

Rate this recipe


  • For the banana load
  • 2 large bananas
  • 250ml almond milk
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 50ml melted coconut oil
  • 200g brown rice flour
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 100g coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 6 tbsp nutty muesli or granola
  • For the chocolate filling
  • 3 tbsp smooth nut butter
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp cacao or cocoa powder
Prep Time


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and grease and line a loaf tin

  2. Place the bananas, almond milk, vinegar and melted coconut oil into your Ninja Kitchen Nutri Ninja blender and whizz up until smooth

  3. Add in the flour, ground almonds, coconut sugar, cinnamon and baking powder, and blend again until you have a slightly thick smooth batter. Spoon half the mixture into the loaf tin and spread out

  4. Heat up the nut butter and maple syrup to melt them both, and whisk in the cacao or cocoa powder to create a smooth sauce. Drizzle over the middle of your loaf tin mixture and then spoon over the rest of the banana mixture. Sprinkle over the granola/muesli then bake for 40-45 minutes (cover with foil halfway through) until risen, golden and a skewer comes out clean

  5. Leave to cool in the tin then pop out, cut into slices and enjoy!

My love of healthy food was originally inspired by my commitment to fitness and wellbeing. But that's not to say I don't like a treat from time to time. It was when I started looking for healthy treats that still satisfied my sweet tooth that I realised how little there was to choose from. Despite being labelled 'healthy', many of the recipes I came across relied heavily on processed sugar and fat - which is why I decided to take matters into my own hands.
