Gelpro Banana Bread

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 55 minutes
Makes: 12 large servings


 You’ll need:

  • 3 cups of organic wheat or spelt flour
    (we’ve also tested it with buckwheat flour and it was just as great)
  • 1 tspn baking powder
  • 1 tspn bicarb soda
  • 1 tspn organic maca powder
  • 1 tspn nutmeg
  • 1 tspn cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup of raw organic sugar or coconut sugar
  • 5 medium overripe bananas
  • 6 tbsp Peptipro Collagen
  • 3 organic eggs
  • 1/2 cup of room temperature grass fed ghee
  • 1/2 cup of chunky chopped walnuts + extra for garnish (optional)
  • 3/4 cup of your milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tspn vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of salt



  1. Preheat your oven to 170 degrees Celsius. Line a 20cm x 25cm baking tray with baking paper.

  2. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, bicarb soda, maca powder, nutmeg and cinnamon.

  3. Add salt & sugar into the dry flour mixture.

  4. In a medium bowl, mash together 4 of the bananas. Gently whisk in the eggs, ghee and vanilla, and set aside.

  5. In a separate bowl, combine 3/4 cup of milk with 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar, and set aside.

  6. Add the egg & banana mixture into the flour mixture. Add walnuts and gently fold the mixture until half combined.

  7. Add in the soured milk mixture and continue to fold the mixture gently until completely combined. Take care not to overmix the mixture, as overmixing will result in a more dense banana bread.

  8. Transfer the mixture into the baking tray and level the batter.

  9. Slice your remaining banana into four thin and even slices & gently place on top of your banana bread as a garnish. Sprinkle with a some chopped walnuts.

  10. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a wooden skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Once cooked, remove from oven, transfer to a cooling rack and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes.

  11. Serve with salted butter and your favourite cup of tea.
