Buckwheat Banana Bread

Buckwheat Banana Bread

Special Sunday Smell

I am a slow morning person. That is why weekends are special in my eyes. Waking up and knowing you don´t have to rush anywhere is the best feeling in life. 
And if you can accompany this feeling with a perfect smell of a freshly baked banana bread you are in heaven. 

This recipe is very simple but there is a tricky part with soda and vinegar in it which, when done right, makes the batter grow into a soft and fluffy cake-bread. Pay attention in the instruction section of the recipe below. Nothing hard but not to be skipped.

Banana Bread, I Love You! And even more I love my friends and family who are willing to eat the first fails before the recipe takes its true shape.

What could be better than a Smell of a Banana Bread on a SloMo Sunday?!

Banana Bread That:
  • Smells Good
  • Tastes Good
  • Boosts the Mood
  • and is healthy and all that jazz

Banana Bread

  • 3 bananas ripe, about 300g
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour 150g
  • 1/2 cup almond flour 45g
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar 40g
  • 1/2 cup plant milk/water 100ml
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1,5 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted, 40g, optional


  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • walnuts


  • preheat oven to 180°C
  • in one bowl mix buckwheat and almond flour, set aside
  • in another bowl mash the bananas with a fork
  • add coconut sugar to the bananas and combine well
  • add milk and cinnamon and stir
  • place the baking powder and soda in the middle of the banana bowl, add the vinegar on top and straight when it starts to sizzle stir the mixture well add the flour mixture from the first bowl and stir until everything is well combined
  • lastly, add the melted coconut oil, mix well and pour into the mold
  • slightly press some walnuts on top for decoration
  • bake about 50 min in 180°C
  • brush some maple syrup on top of the baked banana bread and let it cool down in the mold


  • mold 24x7cm
  • you can omit the oil from the recipe if you prefer high carb low fat version. But in case of usin a non-silicon mold make sure to grease it to prevent the cake from getting stuck or use parchment paper. Also, you might need to add some extra liquid to thin the batter a little. 
  • don´t leave the soda out from the recipe. Baking powder alone might not rise the batter enough and the result will be dense and heavy
  • preheat the oven so that when you are finished with the soda and vinegar and have your bread batter ready in mold you can place it into the oven straight away. Too long waiting might prevent the batter from rising.
