This vegan almond butter chocolate chip banana bread is thick, sweet, full of rich almond butter and melty chocolate chips! Made with 6 healthy ingredients, gluten-free, and banana sweetened.
This vegan almond butter chocolate chip banana bread has four of my most favorite foods: oats, bananas, almond butter, and chocolate. It might seem like a lot going on at first, but trust, the flavors are all so lovely together.
To start, you’ll blend up the oats to flour consistency. Mash your extra ripe, spotty bananas, and add them to the oats. Bananas are the only sweetener in the bread, so they MUST be ripe!
Up next is the star, the rich, gooey almond butter. I always get unsweetened, oil-free nut butters, and I’d recommend you do the same for the most optimal nutrition. If your almond butter is really thick, I’d melt it in the microwave for about 30 seconds to get it a little more loos so it will mix more easily into the batter.
Finally add the flax eggs, some nondairy milk, and the vegan chocolate chips. I love the PASCHA unsweetened chips, but whatever vegan chocolate you like will be fab.
Bake the banana bread for 30-40 minutes. The time will vary depending on your oven, mine usually only takes about 30 minutes. Plus, it will firm up as it cools!
This vegan almond butter chocolate chip banana bread is seriously everything I’ve ever wanted in a loaf of banana bread. Sweet, thick, and SO gooey and rich from the bananas and almond butter, it’s officially my favorite banana bread I’ve ever baked.
Like I always say, forget peanut butter, almond butter is where it’s at and I am HERE FOR IT.

Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins
Total Time: 45 mins
- 2 cups rolled oats, blended into flour
- 1 1/2 cups super ripe banana, mashed
- 2 tbsp flax eggs – 2 tbsp ground flaxseed in a bowl with 6 tbsp water, set in the fridge for 20 minutes
- 1/2 cup natural, unsweetened almond butter
- 1/2 cup unsweetened nondairy milk
- 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix the oat flour, banana, flax eggs, almond butter, and almond milk until thoroughly combined.
Add the chocolate chips and stir, then pour the batter into a parchment-lined or nonstick loaf pan.
Bake the banana bread for 30-40 minutes. The time will depend on your oven, just bake until it no longer feels super soft/gooey in the center. It will continue to firm up as it cools.
Allow the banana bread to cool in the pan for 15 minutes before removing, then cool for another 30 minutes before slicing.
