No sugar no flour banana bread

Searching for no sugar no flour banana bread?  I am excited to share a recipe, no sugar and no flour banana bread with you today.  

Ok, so after making the Black Bean Brownies No Sugar and Oat Brownies using my Vitamix, I am kind of hooked on it.  

It is so super simple to use!  I just throw all of the ingredients in and then mix it until smooth.  Put in baking dish and call it done!  

How easy is that?  No more  making sure I mix in dry ingredients and then wet ingredients... I love baking now!  

I had 5 very ripe, ok they were black bananas sitting on the counter mocking me... I bought them to make a banana bread... and then I kept putting it off... 

I was not sure how I wanted to go about coming up with a recipe for banana bread... and then Mr. Vintage was late coming home one evning so I decided to just jump in, in Cara fashion of course.

The oven was preheated to 350 degrees. 

I threw in a package of dates and all 5 peeled bananas.  I did not want to come up with another recipe so I decided to just do it!  I flipped the switch and let the Vitamix do it's mixing, chopping magic!


Then I added in the oats, baking soda, salt, vanilla, and eggs into the batter.  

Once the batter was smooth, I poured it into our Wilton bread pan.   

Banana Bread

  1. 5 ripe bananas
  2. 1 8 oz package dates
  3. 1 1/2 c oats
  4. 1 t vanilla
  5. 1/2 t baking soda
  6. 1/2 t salt
  7. 2 eggs

Experimenting in the kitchen can be fun and then when something does not turn out, it can be a bust... 

I never thought 20 years, or even 5 years ago I would make up my own recipes.  Working with natural ingredients in their most basic form has made me really step outside my comfort zone, and I have to say I like it.

I never thought I would be able to enjoy baked goods again with the food allergies and restrictions I have, but that is not true.  I actually think the bakes goods I have been making taste better than store bought items.

I am having fun, experimenting, and sharing with all of you.  Who knew it would all come together like it has?  I never really intended to share the concoctions I made, but then I thought why not?

I love getting recipes from friends, and you have all become my friends over the months.  This blog has been one good thing to come from covid.  I am pretty happy it has turned out the way it has.

You could add nuts to your banana bread, but I am not a nut lover.  I like them separate, but not really in breads or cookies.


I love this little Jadeite cake plate by Mosser Glass.  It is the perfect size for cookies or sliced bread.    

I had my mom try this recipe and she loved it.  We all know that is a surprise since she is not a fan of gluten free foods.  I took that as a win, and decided I needed to share this with you as soon as possible!  Let me know if you give this one a try.  

Enjoy your week, let's hope for a speedy weekend!  Do you feel like we wish our lives away waiting for the weekends to hurry up and arrive?  I do not like that, but it is so true...
