  • Author: Jasmine Briones / Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
  • Yield: 5-7


  • 2 cups gluten-free oat flour*
  • 3 medium spotty bananas, mashed- about 1 1/4 cup
  • 1/31/2 cup coconut sugar*
  • 1/4 cup each diced dried figs
  • 1/4 cup each diced dried pineapple
  • 1/4 cup each diced dried papaya
  • ½ cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (I used almond milk)
  • 2 tbsp ground chia seeds + 6 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder or extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup chopped nuts (I used 1/2 cup walnuts and 1/4 cup almonds)


  1. Line a bread pan with parchment paper (see how to photos in this post).
  2. Mix ground chia seeds with water, stir well and leave it aside until thick and gooey.
  3. In a big bowl add the flour with baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, dried fruit and nuts; mix well.
  4. Mix the mashed banana, almond milk and chia seed mixture in a medium bowl until combined. Add to the dry mixture and mix well until uniform.
  5. Scoop/pour mixture into prepared loaf pan, then top with oats and nuts.
  6. Bake for 50-60 minutes at 350°F, or until a toothpick runs clean.
  7. Let the bread cool down completely as it will be moist and hard to cut into when it’s still hot.


-You could easily grind up 2 cups of oats in a high speed blender to make your own!

-Depending on how sweet you would like it. Start with 1/3 cup (5 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon and taste the batter, then add more as needed (1/2 cup is equivalent to 8 tablespoons).
