Dairy free life – banana bread

We always seem to get out of sync with the number of bananas I buy and either get too few or too many.


I hate it when we have too many and they start to get over ripe and the girls start to refuse to eat them.


Banana bread is the perfect solution for really ripe bananas and makes a yummy dairy free cake too.
Dairy free banana bread

100g dairy free spread

100g brown sugar

250g plain flour

1 tbsp baking powder

2 tsp cinnamon

3 tbsp oat milk or even better oat cream if you can find it (doesn’t seem to make a big difference which goes in though)

400-450g peeled bananas (roughly 4 or 5)

150g raisins


Pop everything except the raisins into a mixer and blitz.  If you’re doing it without a food processor then cream the dairy free spread and sugar together add the bananas and mush together and then pop in the oat milk.  Stir in the flour and cinnamon and then finally add in the raisins.


Pour it all into a greased and lined loaf tin and cook at 180 degrees C or in the top oven of the Aga (on the grid shelf on the bottom of the oven with the cold plain shelf on the 2nd set of rungs) for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown and when a skewer comes out clean when you stick it into the middle.


You can also cook the mix in muffin cases and it’ll take about half the time, so about 20-25 minutes.


Ease onto a wire rack to cool and then serve up!


It freezes nicely if you can keep it away from the massed hordes long enough to get it into the freezer.

  • That sounds really yummy, I don’t like butter or margarine so this is one I will be trying. Thank you x

  • be honest with me, are you two people, you have kids, you work, you blog, you garden and now you cook?

    I cant compete – you are superwoman – I am humble in your presence!!!

    Since I admit to my failings could you please send me some as it looks/sounds rather yum


    • Muddling Along

      You should see the state of my house – my bedroom is just piles of stuff because I can’t be bothered to tidy up because I’d rather do these things… I guess I do what I enjoy and try and not do too much other stuff

      Thinking I may need to bring cake to Cybermummy

  • I am SO glad I found your site, I’ve been baking for years and recently found out I can’t eat dairy. Thank you for our fantastic recipes and insights! Do you think I could use soya milk in this recipe? Never come across oat milk before…

    • Definitely could use soya milk we had to use oat milk because there’s a high level of similarities with the soya protein so likely she would also be allergic to that

      We got oat milk from the supermarket – Sainsburies, Waitrose and Tesco all stock it

      Pleased to meet you *wave*
