To make the banana bread, you’ll need overripe bananas, free-range eggs, coconut oil and maple syrup.
You’ll also need to get your hands on coconut flour, tapioca powder, baking powder and vanilla bean extract.
The recipe takes under an hour in total to make.
How to make the banana bread
Three large overripe bananas

Three large free-range eggs
1/4 cup of coconut oil
1/4 cup of Lakanto maple-flavoured syrup
2/3 cup and one tablespoon of coconut flour
1/4 cup of tapioca or arrowroot flour
One 1/2 teaspoons of gluten-free baking powder
One teaspoon of vanilla bean extract
1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line a small loaf tin with baking paper.
2. In a large bowl, mash two of the bananas, add in the eggs and use a whisk to continue to mash and combine them well.
3. Add in the remaining ingredients and use a spoon to mix and incorporate well.
4. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin, flatten the top, and slice the third banana lengthways and place on top.
5. Transfer to the oven and bake for 35-45 minutes or until golden brown on the outside and cooked through.
6. Serve warm or cold.
TIP: Halfway through cooking, spoon some extra maple and coconut oil on the top to make the bananas extra caramelised.

In an Instagram post to his 95,500 followers, Luke revealed he makes the snack from supermarket ingredients including coconut oil, peanut butter, almond meal, cacao butter and salt.
The Byron Bay nutritionist, who provided training and dietary advice on the set of Angelina’s blockbuster Unbroken while she was filming in Australia in 2013, says the bars have a ‘thick chocolate brownie base with a layer of oozy peanut caramel’.
