Gluten-free Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread


When coffee cake meets banana bread meets cinnamon roll, we get this wonderfully tender and fluffy breakfast bread. With spongy banana bread and layers of sweet cinnamon swirls throughout, it’s the ultimate breakfast treat or snack. Made with clean, natural ingredients like almond flour, bananas, coconut sugar, and cinnamon.



For the Bread

  • 2 overripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

For the filling

  • 2/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil (melted, then cooled)


  1. Preheat to 350 F
  2. In a bowl, mix together the bananas, eggs, vanilla, coconut milk, and apple cider vinegar until combined; set aside
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and sea salt
  4. Slowly fold the flour mixture into the bowl with the bananas until no flour clumps remain; set aside
  5. Mix together all the filling ingredients in a small bowl until coconut oil is incorporated into the mixture; set aside
  6. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper or grease with oil. Pour 1/3 of the batter into the pan, then sprinkle 1/3 of the filling mixture over top. Repeat 2 more times, alternating batter and filling mixture
  7. With a thin knife, make a couple big swirls in the batter in the form of large ‘S’s
  8. Bake for 45 - 50 minutes until a knife can be inserted in the middle and come out clean
