Nana’s Banana Bread

All sorrows are less with bread. – Miguel de Cervantes

Last year my grandparents lived with us while they were building a new home, and I was fortunate enough to enjoy Nana’s fresh banana bread weekly. She made her recipe dairy free just for me! It’s the absolute best.

INGREDIENTS: (makes one loaf)

  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2-3 ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup dairy free butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tsp almond milk
  • Nuts/raisins/chocolate chips (optional)


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, bananas, and butter.
  2. Add the eggs and almond milk. Mix everything well, and fold in the nuts etc if you would like.
  3. Pour into greased pan and bake at 350F degrees for 55-60 minutes. Stick a knife in the top and if it comes out dry, then you’re good!

About The Dairy QueenThe Dairy Queen

Just a New England gal stuck in rural Virginia. Can be found avoiding dairy at all costs. Talents include speed reading ingredient labels and enjoying ice cream via smell. If I could major in Spotify playlist construction and dairy free cooking, I would.

I have been blessed with a dairy allergy and have not touched a cheesy piece of pizza in years. Thus, here we are. I hope you find these recipes simple, inexpensive, and delicious. I have years of experience avoiding dairy, so hopefully my adventures can help you out.
