Special Notes:

This banana bread recipe tastes just like the one your grandma used to bake (if not even better) and the texture is amazing. For the best results, make sure to use super ripe bananas.

For a vegan friendly approach, you can substitute the eggs with flax eggs. For every egg, you can combine 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal with 3 tablespoons of water and allow it to thicken for a few minutes before adding to the recipe [as your egg replacement].  Here is an article on baking substitutes for eggs.

You can use organic brown sugar, coconut sugar or stevia depending upon how many carbs you are comfortable with.  These are all low-FODMAP sweeteners, however, stevia doesn’t have sugar and will not increase your blood sugar levels.

Feel free to double the recipe and freeze the one to enjoy later. Freeze in a zip-lock bag for up to a month.

Dr Jockers Comments

This low FODMAP banana bread recipe tastes great and is fantastic for anyone who has major gut issues and is looking to follow a low-FODMAP diet to help get relief.  This is a tasty and satiating dessert recipe your family will enjoy!

FODMAP is an acronym for naturally occurring Fermentable Oligo, Di- and Monosaccharides and Polyols.  These include the short-chain carbs such as glucose, fructose (present with excess glucose), galactans, polyols and lactose found widely in many healthy foods including cruciferous veggies, legumes and other veggies such as asparagus, onions and garlic.

For some individuals with digestive disorders, FODMAPS are not easily absorbed and are challenging on the bowels.  For individuals with bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine (SIBO) or generalized dysbiosis, they can cause significant bloating, cramping and gas. For more about a low-FODMAP diet read this article here.

I also recommend using specifically formulated enzymes to assist in the breakdown and processing of higher FODMAP foods.  FODMATE™ is an innovative enzyme formula designed for short-term use that can help support digestive health, including relief from occasional cramping, bloating, gas, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and constipation that may result from the consumption of high FODMAP foods.

  1. I tried making ur recipe and it was no where near pourable. It was as if there was no liquid in it at all. Did you leave something out?

    1. My mistake, I used coconut flour and found afterward that you use 1/4 of coconut flour for every cup of all purpose flour as it’s much more absorbant.
