You’ll need only one bowl for this recipe, which means less mess dishes. My trick? It’s using an all-magical sifter that mixes your dry ingredients as you’re sifting them into your wet ingredients.  Genius right? You’ll also want to make sure you are using nice ripe and spotty bananas for this recipe and really anytime your baking with banana 🙂

 Now let’s be real… I could give you a Healthy Hemp Banana Bread recipe that is just moist and delicious, but what is banana bread without a little bit of sweet chocolate.  Trust me, when you slice into that loaf, you’ll want the ooewy gooey-ness of chocolate to add just that little bit of magic.  And don’t even think about swapping them for raisins, I already get enough of that disappointment from those damn oatmeal cookies! 

Funny enough, I think banana bread was one of the first baked goods (besides chocolate chip Pillsbury cookies of course) that I made when I was younger. I love how you can just play around with the flavours and toppings and always come out with an amazing treat!

If you haven’t noticed already, I’ve partnered up with Manitoba Harvest to create some delicious healthified Hemp recipes all year long! This recipe is a great way to get you comfortable with adding Hemp Hearts to your next batch of baked goodies and amp it up with some plant based protein.

 Now, if you want to take this recipe to the next level, you can use 4 mini loaf pans instead and make…. Yup you guessed it! Mini Hemp Banana Breads! These are by far the cutest things I’ve baked in a while and the best part is, they actually bake quicker than a full loaf so there’s less time waiting, and more time devouring. They’re also very convenient to gift to a friend or neighbor or just to pretend your “portion controlling” and eat an entire one loaf in one day! Haha

This one-bowl, Hearty Hemp Banana Bread recipe is packed with fiber, plant based protein and delicious dairy free chocolate chips!
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 25 minutes



  • 3 ripe spotty bananas
  • 1 cup almond meal almond flour
  • 1 cup light spelt flour
  • ½ Cup Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts
  • ¼ Cup raw honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ Cup melted coconut oil*
  • ¼ Cup dairy free chocolate chips



  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • In a large bowl, peel and mash bananas until smooth and whisk in your eggs, coconut oil, honey and vanilla until combined.
  • Next, using a sifter, sift in the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Using a spatula, mix the wet and dry ingredients together until well combined.
  • Fold in the Hemp Hearts and chocolate chips until evenly distributed and set batter aside.
  • Line a loaf pan with parchment paper (or grease 4 mini loaf pans) and slowly pour in the batter. Smooth out the top with a spatula and bake in the oven for 60-70 min (40 min for mini loafs) or until golden brown and a toothpick or spaghetti stick comes out of the center clean.


*melted coconut oil should be left to cool at room temperature before you add it to the wet ingredients. This prevents it from cooking the eggs in your batter.

    Just made this and holy smokes! Is it ever amazing! This is the best healthy banana bread I ever tried and the sweetness is spot on! I subbed the honey for a mixture of coconut sugar and monk fruit! Love everything about it and made in mini loaves and they baked for 30 min! Thank you

    So I’m no baker, but this is literally the only thing I make from scratch other than Costco brownies! So good, so easy and love that you just toss everything into one bowl. Freezes really well too!

    we LOVE this recipe – it’s become a weekly staple (for the last 6-8 months at least…) we make them into muffins though so they are an easy and quick, but healthier version, of a snack to go. highly recommend!

    • you can omit the hemp seeds and even add some sunflower seeds if you’d like instead.

  4. Love this recipe! The combo of almond flour and spelt is so unique! I saw it in one of your meal prep videos and have made it four times already 🙂 I like to add whole frozen berries to the batter for bursts of sweetness and pecans on top for extra crunch!

    • love that variation! thank you so much for sharing Rachel 🙂 And Im so happy to hear you found it from the Meal prep series 😀

  5. I LOVE baking fresh banana bread every month and having it for a lazy Sunday breakfast. My mother loves putting dark chocolate chips, walnuts and coconut shreds in our loaves every time we make some! I bet the hemp seeds just top everything off so incredibly! The mini loaves look so cute and golden-brown 🙂
