  • Pre-heat fan-forced oven to 180°C.
  • In a blender (I use a Vitamix) or food processor blend banana and melted coconut oil until smooth (be careful not to over blend*)
  • In a medium mixing bowl combine buckwheat, coconut, baking powder and vanilla. Add banana and coconut oil mixture and combine well.
  • Pour batter into a lined loaf tin.
  • Bake in oven for 55-60 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Allow to cool on a baking before slicing.



Serving Suggestions:
Serve warm, toasted or chilled.
Make It Personal:
To make this recipe a little extra sweeter, stir through chopped dates.
You can add chopped walnuts to the mixture.
Decorate the top of the batter with desiccated coconut or slices of banana.
Recipe Tips:
*Despite the name buckwheat does not contain wheat. It is a gluten free pseudocereal (cereal).
*Be careful not to over blend the banana and coconut oil as this may cause the loaf to become denser.
The riper the banana, the sweeter your bread will be.

    Easy to make. My kids don’t like coconut so I substituted the coconut for cashews, blended finely. Tastes amazing!!!

    • Casey-Lee Lyons

      Great idea swapping out the coconut for cashews, yum! Thank you so much for sharing your positive feedback. Great to hear you and the kids enjoyed the recipe 🙂

    • Casey-Lee Lyons

      Hi! You could also use extra virgin olive oil or macadamia oil 🙂
