What’s better than a fresh loaf of banana bread that’s packed with flavour, straight out of the oven? Imagine the delicious aromas filling your kitchen… the scent of cinnamon, and the taste of chocolate chips melting in your mouth. Wouldn’t it be amazing to whip up the BEST Hearty Hemp Banana Bread in no time at all? I’ve got the recipe, just for you.
This one-bowl, Hearty Hemp Banana Bread recipe is packed with fiber, plant based protein and delicious dairy free chocolate chips! It’s a great treat that’s easy to make, and it’s sure to satisfy everyone’s taste buds.
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
Whichever way you decide to bake your own banana bread, it’s going to turn out moist, sweet and full of comfort. Enjoy and share your comments below! Stay in touch with me for more fun, healthy baked goods recipes to try in your kitchen.

The best banana bread I’ve ever had! Very moist and delicious. The darker the bananas, the better.
Love this recipe!
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!
So glad to hear, thanks Monica for leaving a review!
[…] sugar-free brownies and apple oat bars using Splenda sweetener, and I baked banana bread based on this recipe from HealthNut Nutrition. I made a few alterations. First, instead of using almond flour and […]
We dont have hemp hearts only hemp powder will it be ok or do you have any idea forcsub. Tnx!
you can omit the hemp seeds and even add some sunflower seeds if you’d like instead.
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 😀
This is the best banana bread so far! It is going in my recipe notebook! Thank you,Ursula
Do you have the nutritional content of the recipe? Sounds really yummy
wich other flour instead of almond can u use por the ONE BOWL HEMP BANANA BREAD?
You could sub it for the spelt flour or brown rice flour.
Is there any substitute for spelt flour?
You could use brown rice or whole wheat 🙂
I think having a nutrition label would be super awesome, transparent and helpful!
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 🙂
That sounds delicious! I love playing around with toppings 🙂
Will oat flour work?
I havent tried it but it should work to replace the spelt flour with 🙂
