Prep:15min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a 20cm (8 in) square cake tin or line with baking parchment.
  2. Combine coconut flour, bicarb, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Mash bananas in a separate bowl; whisk in eggs. Stir coconut sugar and vanilla extract into banana mixture; stir into coconut flour mixture using a wooden spoon, folding until well combined. Spoon mixture into the prepared tin; top with sunflower seeds and extra coconut sugar.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool bread in the fridge, about 20 minutes. Store in fridge.


Keep this in fridge because this is a paleo recipe, it can easily spoil. It's best to use bananas that are in between yellow/brown.
