For the cinnamon swirl


  • Prepare your flax eggs by combining the ground flaxseed with 6 tablespoons of water. Let sit for 10 minutes, to form a gel.
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine your dry ingredients and mix well. In a separate mixing bowl, add your bananas, flax eggs, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract and mix well. Prepare your cinnamon mixture by combining the cinnamon and granulated sweetener.
  • Combine your wet and dry ingredients and mix well. If the batter is too thick, add some milk or maple syrup.
  • Transfer 1/3 of the batter to the lined pan. Sprinkle 3/4 of the cinnamon/sweetener mixture. Fill with the remaining banana bread batter. Top with remaining cinnamon and granulated sweetener. Bake for 45-55 minutes, checking around the 40-minute mark. Once a skewer comes out clean, remove from the oven.
  • Allow the cinnamon swirl banana bread to cool in the pan for 15 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. 


* Only add the granulated sweetener if you prefer a sweeter bread.
Be sure to add some milk if your cinnamon swirl banana bread batter is too thick.
