This banana ice cream doesn’t require any time-consuming beating or costly ice cream machines! It also doesn’t contain any dairy so it’s a wonderful treat for all the dairy intolerant folk out there who miss out when it comes to ice cream. Surprisingly it tastes like real banana ice cream too! With different variation options, there’s a flavour everyone will like. Make sure to use ripe bananas, even ones going brown, for a sweeter, creamier ice cream. The addition of almond butter adds some healthy fats and nutrients while the coconut cream makes it creamier. I don’t add sweeteners because bananas have a high sugar content.

This creamy, delicious dairy-free chocolate is perfect for making solid Easter eggs or rabbits that are much healthier than the store-bought ones. You could use any mould, ice-cube tray or slice tray lined with baking paper for chocolate bark. I used a plastic 16-hole chocolate mould from Spotlight. Cocoa butter can be found in health stores. I experimented making this without coconut oil and it was very rich. The coconut oil makes it much creamier. You could make it with just coconut oil instead of cocoa butter, but it melts much quicker so has to be kept in the fridge until eaten. It’s important that your coconut oil is soft but not liquid, at room temperature, a bit like whipped cream. Also make sure you let your cocoa butter cool a little before adding it to the coconut oil. Carob powder is a good option for kids and those wanting to avoid caffeine. Double the recipe for more chocolate. You could also add 1/4 teaspoon mixed spice, a filling of nut butter or add shredded coconut, chopped nuts or peppermint oil instead of the vanilla and cinnamon.

Delicious, wholesome and healthy! What more could you want from an easy and fool-proof banana bread recipe that everyone can eat? Using gluten-free oat flour instead of the traditional wheat flour, and dairy-free milk makes this banana bread easier to digest, less allergenic for those of us wheat, gluten and dairy intolerant folks and it’s full of dietary fibre! Plus it tastes so healthy! I made this for my partner for the first time and he closed his eyes on the first bite and said OMG this is awesome!

Make sure your oats are gluten-free if you are wheat or gluten intolerant, and if you are one of the few coeliac people who cannot tolerate GF oats, please use gluten-free plain flour instead. You could also use gluten-free self-raising flour but you would need to omit the baking powder. I have made this recipe before with a mixture of flours- 1 ½ cups of oat flour and half a cup of GF plain flour which was nice too. If you don’t have milk on hand, you could probably add water instead. It’s not overly sweet as it is but you could omit the coconut sugar or honey for an even healthier sugar-free banana bread! You can serve it with butter if you can eat dairy which is to die for, drizzle with almond butter or a sugar-free jam. It’s also just as delicious by itself!

If you are coeliac and unsure if you can tolerate GF oats, read our article ‘Are oats gluten-free?’ Click here. Please check with your practitioner for advice.
