Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread (6 Ingredients)
- 2 ripe medium bananas, mashed
- 1 cup natural creamy peanut butter
- 1/3 cup honey (or maple syrup)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate
- Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a 9×5" loaf pan with parchment paper or spray with coconut oil.
- Mix all ingredients – EXCEPT THE CHOCOLATE. Once batter is incorporated, then fold in the chocolate pieces. Transfer batter to your pan and top with more chocolate if you like for aesthetic purposes. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Watch the loaf at the 35-40 minute mark, if the top of the loaf is browning excessively, loosely throw over a piece of aluminum foil to cover the top.
- Allow to cool on a wire rack, 15 minutes prior to slicing

I don’t see flour in this recipe
There is no flour in this recipe!
it says ‘flourless’ as a first word in the heading lol
is the nutritional value per serve or the whole loaf?
Very good question 🤔. I was just about to ask the same.
the tik tok version had almond flour
can I make muffins out the these?
Absolutely! Just lessen bake time to 20-22 minuts.
Can you use milk chocolate?
of course! That will definitely work!
Great stuff ☺️
Thank you Max!
Can you substitute eggs with applesauce or flax egg? Our son has an egg allergy, but this looks so yummy!
Did you try an egg substitute Would love to make this eggless for my daughter.
I used an egg substitute! It was still the best banana bread I’ve ever made lol..
what did you use as an egg substitute please Kyle?
This has become a big favorite of ours. The texture came out perfectly fine.
Hi Sarah, Glad you loved the recipe! Thanks so much for the rating!
do you have a sugar free version of this ?
I would also be interested in a sugar free, no honey/maple syrup version, since bananas already are high in sugar.
Wow!! So good! I left it in a little too long but still turned out so nice. Wife is GF so anything that doesn’t use flour or dairy is a win!
Hi Jim, This is perfect for her! Glad you tried it and thank you for taking the time to rate and comment!
Guys, mine did not come out. I’m going to blame it on my oven though. It came out burnt and the inside wasn’t cooked all the way? Have 0 idea how that even happens. Great taste though. Will try again.
Hello! Oh no I’m sorry it didnt work out for you! In the Instructions, I state to loosely add a piece of aluminum foil thrown over the top of the loaf to prevent burning and continue the baking until done. Try that next time! Best!
Same happened to me. outer was burning and inner not cooked. kind of confused what happened. I made 2 loafs at the same time (both on top rack). I made one with syrup and the other with honey. I also covered the top after 30mins because it was already starting to burn.
Hi Stacy, Maybe next time bump your oven to 325 F. All ovens are different in strength. I have an electric oven and I used to have a gas oven. The gas was extremely more powerful than the electric.
Is it moist? Looks delicious
Thank you Charlie for the rating!1
Mine came out perfect and my boyfriend loves it because he’s GF , I put my foil on 10min in lol and came out nice and golden.
I was really skeptical about this. When I made it, my batter was looser than what was on the video, but it baked up great – very cake-like. Only thing I would change is to put my chocolate in on top of the batter after I pour it into the loaf pan, b/c it sank to the bottom.
*I cut the honey back to 1/4 c. and subbed in a Tb. Lakanto powdered sweetener.
It was so delicious!
Really nice texture. I used peanut butter but any nut butter would be great. Could also try tahini if nut allergy? Super yummy!!!
Thanks for the recipe was so good
Can almond butter be used
ooh, I’m not a baker, but this looks too easy and I have all the ingredients. can’t wait to try. thank you!
Can I use maple syrup instead of honey?
Yes, it’s in the ingredients
Hi Stella, can you double this recipe? I’ve got 5 young men in this house!
Hi Rita, yes, and transfer the batter to two separate loaf pans.
Can i put it in an airfryer instead of oven?
It was delicious!!! I added roasted walnuts to mine and I’ll definitely be making it again!!!
Hi Stephanie, glad you liked the loaf! And I love the roasted walnuts as an addition! i gotta try that!!
YUM!! I WASN’T SURE AT FIRST WHEN I MIXED IT ALL TOGETHER, SEEMED RUNNY, BUT EXCELLENT TEXTURE & TASTE, USED MAPLE SYRUP AND GHIRADELLI CHOC CHIPS, DEF A WINNER!! THIS WILL BE A FAVORITE!
The nutrition facts posted; that for the whole banana loaf?
Amazing recipie. I modified this to make pancakes as well.
Looks amazing and wonderful for my GF granddaughter. But what peanut butter do you use? The brand I buy doesn’t pour from the jar.
Hi Pauline – I use an all natural PB from Trader Joe’s where the only ingredient is peanuts (and salt). I do not use Jif. You can also find it at Whole Foods and other large super markets! Hope you and your granddaughter enjoy!!
Hi! This looks delicious! Thanks for the nutritional info as well. Those figures are based on what size of piece (grams e.g.)?
hi stella, the calories 317 for the whole cake or per slice? thx
Hello! Its per slice
Is the 312 calories for one serving ? I see there are 8 servings to the loaf is that all correct.
hi stella, the calories 317 for the whole cake or per slice? thx
Looks wonderful but my son can’t have bananas. What would you use instead?
2/3 cup pumpkin puree
or sweet potato
First time trying any sort of banana loaf and this recipe was perfect!
Can I use regular chunky peanut butter & add oil?
Yes, that might work
This was such an easy recipe that everyone in the house enjoyed including those who are gluten free! Thanks so much!
Stella hello, I really loved this recipe I want to make it, but I need a video some help to understand better, I’m not a good to cakes.. 😕 Really need help.. Thank u ❤️❤️ I’m also Greek 💋
Hi Marina, There is a video at the top of the page here!!! Thank you for the sweet message too my Greek sister!!
So good!! I made it on a whim, left it out on the counter to cool and half way through the next day it was finished!! My kids and picky husband all loved the guilt free treat. We substituted peanut butter with almond butter ( only because we had it) and added 2 teaspoons of stevia – no honey because the bananas were super sweet. Came out great.
Hahahahah I hoped you learned your lesson – just kidding!!! I’m really happy the whole family liked the loaf! Thanks also for the glowing review!
Delicious. Texture was perfect as well as taste. Added walnuts. Really enjoyed.
Wow! Flavor and texture are amazing. I didn’t add honey but everything else stayed the same. Everyone loved it!!!! So easy too!
Hi Kristin, Did you increase any other ingredients since you didn’t add the honey?
Just made this! So. Yum. Havant another slice RIGHT NOW! 😅
Thank you for an awesome recipe!!
Excellent recipe, can’t get better than this for a flourless banana bread!! We’ve made it 4 times since we found the recipe 2 weeks ago lol
Hey Roseanna, I’m so happy you liked it! Thank you for leaving the review!
My family and I absolutely love it. One slice is enough to satisfy my sweet tooth for the whole day.
Thanks for the recipe but wondering if you could use Whole Earth Peanut Butter – Crunchy?
I wouldn’t use crunchy myself.
I have used crunchy and loved the texture of it!
Can you replace swerve for the sweetener and sugar free chocolate?
My husband is keto.
can you specify 2 medium bananas into weight or cups mashed
2 medium bananas
I love it WoW no more banana will finish in the garbage 😂
Incredible, just a delicious snack or breakfast.
Kids LOVE it 🥰
Yay! If the kids approve you know its good!!! Thanks for rating the recipe too!
The bomb. I have an awesome banana bread recipe with flour. Now I have one without flour and it is so easy and delicious! I didn’t change anything. Thank you!!
Hi Carole, Glad you liked this banana bread! And thanks for taking the time to rate it!!
just made my first ever cake and I’m delighted with myself. maybe 5 mins less in the oven the next time but lovely and moist and tasty on the inside. thanks😁
It was sooo good! And I didn’t feel guilty eating them 😂 Thank you for sharing!
Hi Michelle, Thanks for trying them out and enjoying them! lol I never feel guilty when I eat something like this – made with whole ingredients you can’t go wrong!
Turned out perfect but, refrigerated the leftovers? And about how long will they keep in the fridge?
Hi Ken, I leave mine out and they last about 3-4 days. You’re better off refrigerating tbh – will last longer – about 5 days.
Amazing taste and guilt free recipe।
Love this recipe, I have made this three times already so easy and delicious
How much is a serving?
one eighth of the loaf
this is delicious. must try if you haven’t already.
Easy and delicious. Had to substitute with almond butter and chocolate morsels and it came out great! My family loves it! Definitely a keeper 👍🏼💕 thank you!
Hi Silvia, Glad it was enjoyed by the whole family!
Yummy yummy! A must bake if you like peanut butter. Can you use regular peanut butter as opposed to natural? Thanks
Hi Meryl! Glad you enjoyed but you cannot use Jif peanut butter here… it wont work. Sorry!
Hey I tried this and it came out nice!! Thanks for the recipe. Btw, I used airfryer. 🙂
great feedback! Thank you@
how long and at what temp for airfryer plz
Do you think i could use Dark Chocolate cocoa powder instead of the chunks?TIA
what size of cup do you use for this recipe?
Can’t wait to try, but I have a “dumb” question, regarding the dark chocolate … do you use a regular candy bar or the baking chocolate found in the baking aisle? 😀 Thank you
Hi Francesca, I used a baking chocolate bar but you can use either!
Can I use peanut butter powder instead?
No that won’t work here.
Can this be frozen?
Delicious! I added some walnuts also. So good and light! Thank you can’t wait to try more recipes!
Hey! Thats awesome so happy you liked the loaf!
I did this twice and it was so good! I just wonder why, after taking it out of the oven to cool, the cake sinked! Any tips? I am using a rectangular pan.
HI Regina, glad you liked the loaf! There can be a few reasons why this happened.
Check the expiration dates of your leavening agents: baking powder/baking soda.
Make sure you are using the right size pan.
Dont overmix the batter.
I’d like to omit the honey 𝙤𝙧 any type of sweetener.
Can you suggest if I should increase the bananas 𝙤𝙧 peanut butter?
Hi! I would recommend an extra banana or apple sauce!
I made this tonight and it came out delicious and moist. Loving it. Next time I make it I will add pecans and omit the chocolate. I use Lilly’s chocolate. Thank you
Hi Margarita, Thanks so much for giving this recipe a try! Glad it worked out for you!
Hi Stella -being a bit of a banana bread connoisseur myself, this was so simple and so tasty! Mine did come out a little on the dry side – do you think I maybe overcooked it? Definitely will be a go -to with your other recipe of the banana chocolate oat bread (which is also divine!)
I make this recipe and it was super easy and delicious, added pistachios along with the chocolate absolutely delicious. Thank you
I just made it this morning – this pb banana bread was fabulous! It was the perfect size for my 6-cup bundt style pan. Moist & delicious, you’d never know it’s flourless & very low in sugar. Used 1/4 tsp powdered sugar to dust the finished product. I used Jif no added sugar version is only peanuts & salt in it. It worked really well. Wish I could post a pic.
HI Donna, that sounds perfect! Thanks for taking the time to rate the recipe!
I have no idea where my loaf pan is so I made 12 muffins. I am gf so loved the no flour aspect. I used syrup not honey. I loved the muffins but think next time I will add cinnamon for an extra flavor.
To die for! Thank you so very much for this recipe! Just an FYI, I had to use a glass loaf pan, so I adjusted the temp to 325° and baked about 10 minutes longer, and it turned out great! The foil was still useful as well, about half way through I placed the foil lightly over the bread and it didn’t burn the top. Thank you again!! Will definitely be making more 😁
Absolutely! one of my to go to dessert whenever I am craving something sweet without the guilt. Also my coworkers love it too. Thank you for sharing this wonderful and easy recipe with all of us🥰
I just made this flourless banana bread and it’s absolutely delicious! I added some chopped walnuts on top and I sweetened with local maple syrup.
best brand of dark choclate for this recipe please?
Hi Stella, are we able to use baking soda instead of baking powder?
HI MIke, I havent tried it but it should be fine.
Made just as suggested. It was delicious! It did sink a bit while cooling, but I’m pretty sure it’s the inaccuracy of my oven.
Love this flourless recipe.. My daughter want to have this but we don’t have eggs… What can be used instead of egg or flax egg?? Thank you in advance…
you can try with apple sauce, the texture will change though but it should work!
This is now my favorite banana bread. I no longer make the flour version!
Amazing, managed to please thee entire family and its healthy and sooo good thank you so much😊
Just wanted to ask in case I wanted to add some fruit like berries would you have any advice ?
Wow this was amazing! So moist and yummy! I can’t believe how good this came out without any flour!
Can’t believe I forgot the eggs!! :-(. Still going to eat it, regardless of my misfortune.
Would you increase any of the ingredients if you were leaving out the chocolate?
no need to do that
Easy to make, followed the recipe exactly & it came out delicious. thank you.
so yummy and easy!
I like your recipes are so delicious 😋
It looks amazing and I’m dying to try it but I wish it had at least less than half of the total amount of sugar it has. Are there healthier alternatives for honey/maple syrup?
No one caught it but you forgot to put the flour in your ingredients..
Can you please tell about oven temperature ?
So quick and easy to make and taste delicious.
Couldn’t resist having a slice for breakfast at 6.30am. YUM!
Thank you for sharing this healthy banana bread recipe. Super simple and super tasty!! I used mini chocolate chips because that’s all that I had.
Hi Traci, its my pleasure – I’m glad it was enjoyed!
This gluten free girl is in love with this recipe. I made it with the maple syrup. it’s the best banana bread I’ve ever eaten. Thanks so much for the recipe!
Hi Alison, so glad you liked the banana bread and thank YOU for the kind rating!
So easy and delicious!!
Hi Christene, glad you liked the banana bread!
Hello, it’s in the oven now! Will a toothpick to check for doneness work with this recipe?
THIS IS AN EXCELLENT RECIPE! The bread goes together fast, tastes wonderful, and best of all, leaves my tummy feeling full and happy (aka, no tummy ache afterwards!!!) I am gluten intolerant, so it’s always a treat to find a comfort food recipe that tastes great, is moist and not the sawdusty consistency of typical gluten-free recipes. Thanks for developing and sharing it Stella!
I made it according to directions and it turned out perfect! love
Hi Carol, glad you liked the banana bread! Thanks so much for the review!
This was absolutely delicious. I made the no bake peanut butter oat cups, which were also amazing, so i knew i had to make this! I could seriously eat the whole loaf!! 🙂 so yummy!!
Hi Jennie, I feel you! Its one of my favorites this loaf! And the cups too – so bomb! Thanks so much for the kind rating!
can i use regular chunky (not natural) peanut butter?
Hi Cheryl, not sure if that will work. and i would not recommend it.
Perfect taste and texture.
I made the loaf this morning—-while the flavor was great, cooking it for 50
Minutes made the sides and bottom of the bread too browned…it wasn’t quite burnt, but it was ‘almost’ there…
I even covered it with foil at the 40-minute mark…
I’ll try again for 45m next time…😄
WOW! So good! I added collagen peptides and ground flaxseed. Made muffins large and mini. Love your recipes!
Loved this bread. Instead of me using natural peanut butter I used regular creamy peanut butter instead and Lilly dark chocolate chips. Those worked better for me since I’m diabetic It was easy and delicious. Will make this bread again.
Hi Marcy, so glad the recipe resonated with you! Thanks for trying it and leaving such a kind rating!

Thank you for sharing this recipe! I used TJ mixed nut butter and sugar free maple syrup. My batter seemed thin so I added a tablespoon of coconut flour and used 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder. I used Lily’s dark chocolate chips and 1/2 cup roasted walnuts. Turned out perfect!
Hi Dee, Glad you enjoyed the bars and thanks for sharing your feedback with everyone!
I tried this recipe and used crunchy peanut butter instead. It turned our really good! So moist. Definitely will make again!
