A low FODMAP Vegan Banana Bread packed full of flavors and nutrients: bananas, carrots and walnuts. A one bowl recipe that is also gluten free.
You know I love baking with fruit and veggies. I love creating low FODMAP recipes where all the goodness comes from fruits, vegetables, grains and nuts. No need for butter, cream, milk or too much sugar. My goal is to create delicious and healthy cakes.
My first adventure in baking with fruits and vegetables was my last birthday cake, a fragrant and delicious banana orange bread. Since then I’ve been developing new baking techniques using these natural ingredients. I’ve been busy mixing, combining, adding, testing, failing, succeding and HAVING FUN – not to mention, totally satisfying my sweet tooth!
This low FODMAP Vegan Banana Bread recipe follows both the fruit+nuts (sort of) rule explained in detail here and the fruit+vegetable (sort of) principle I used here. This time I’ve added carrots for fluffiness and nutrional goodness.

Joana, this bread sounds so good! Love that you added a carrot in there. Can’t wait to try this!
Thank you, Genevieve 🙂
How about using ground flax seeds?
Hi Martha! You can do that as well, even if store bought flaxseed meal (ground flax seeds) is not as good. In this case, no need to mix in the blender.
Directions say to add baking soda but there is no measurement for baking soda. Do I add it in? How much? Or do I leave it out?
Hi Monica! I forgot to remove it after updating the recipe. It’s now up do date. Thx for spotting.
