This grain free and lower sugar recipe will satisfy your sweet tooth while still supporting your healthy lifestyle options. You can reduce the calories even more by leaving out the chips or pecans.  Another option is reducing the Maple Syrup by 1/2 depending on how sweet you prefer.


  • ¼ Cup melted extra virgin coconut oil
  • 4 Tablespoons pure maple syrup (or cut down to 2 Tablespoons)
  • 2 Large eggs
  • ¼ Teaspoon Pure Monk Fruit Sweetener (extract)
  • ½ Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 Medium ripe bananas mashed (approx. 1 ½ cups)
  • 1 Cup almond flour
  • ½ Cup coconut flour
  • ½ Teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ Teaspoon salt
  • ¼ Cup chopped pecans (optional)
  • ¼ Cup semisweet chocolate chips* (optional)
  • Coconut or Avocado Oil Spray to grease pan

* To save on sugar try Lilly’s Semi Sweet Style Chips


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Warm coconut oil as needed to liquid state.

In a medium bowl, combine coconut oil, maple syrup, eggs, sweetener, and vanilla, and stir until it’s creamy. Stir in mashed bananas. Add flours, salt, baking soda and mix well. Add chopped pecans and chocolate chips if desired.

Grease a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan or if you have parchment paper, put a piece that fits the bottom of the pan so the bread comes out easily once baked. Pour in batter.

Bake for 45-55 minutes – until the top and sides become golden brown and a toothpick or knife inserted in the very center comes out dry.

Serves 10.

I am blown away-amazed at the time and effort our coaches – Danna & Robyn  put into completely personalizing this plan with encouragement and support every step of the way. That takes time, planning and lots of elbow grease and brainpower to do. They keep us on our toes with suggestions, kind criticism, guidance, new recipes, ideas, clips, care and concern for non-diet issues that crop up on the Zoom.etc. I know of no other eating plan that has this bonus – the personal interaction. Not once but twice a week plus a prayer time to boot. Just saying thanks does not seem enough…but anyway…Thank you, ladies! You Rock! – Silvia

I just want to let y’all know HOW MUCH the 30 Day Challenge has helped me GET BACK ON TRACK & STAY ON TRACK with my weight, workouts & healthy self talk.  I love the Make Me app because it keeps me accountable (which is EXACTLY what I need)! & Danna & Robyn were ALWAYS there with coaching every step of the way. I’m excited to be transitioning to the Academy for continued success. – Gaye

I found this App fun and engaging. It definitely kept me more engaged in my daily lifestyle choices. It’s a very effective, subtle nudge of accountability. – Sandi
