I stumbled across this gorgeous recipe from Medical Medium. A whole food recipe that’s a definite hit with me and my family. This Strawberry Banana bread is so easy to throw together,  pop in the oven, enjoy the amazing smell that fills up your home while you wait for it to cook. You can replace the strawberries too with walnut and a slash of coffee if you’re fancying one to deter the kids from!

This recipe is gluten, dairy and egg free, and also low in fat.

Bananas: The fructose in banana is liver’s favorite source of food. It provides quick fuel to the liver and wakes up sleepy cells, increasing their ingenuity and work output. Soothes the linings of the intestinal tract and also soothes the nerves attached to the intestinal tract. Bananas are a powerful antiviral food and contrary to popular belief, they are also one of the most antibacterial, anti-yeast, antifungal foods. A great food to combine with other nutrient-rich foods or to take with supplements, because they improve the liver’s ability to absorb nutrients.

Strawberry Banana Bread 


  • 3 ripe bananas (yields about 1 1/2 cups mashed)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp alcohol-free vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 1/2 cups gluten-free oat flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (optional)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup roughly chopped strawberries
  • 2 whole strawberries, thinly sliced, for topping


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9×5 loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • Place the bananas in a bowl and mash with a fork or potato masher. Add the maple syrup, coconut sugar, vanilla extract and almond milk. Mix well.
  • In another bowl, combine the oat flour, sea salt, baking powder and baking soda. Whisk until lump free. Add the wet ingredients and fold gently until you get a uniform batter.
    Add the chopped strawberries and stir very gently, just enough to incorporate them.
  • Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake in the oven for 45-55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool completely before slicing.
