A delicious snack: low FODMAP en gluten-free chocolate coffee banana bread. With almond flour. Easy to make and lactose-free


  • 3 bananas (total 300 grams)*
  • 3 eggs, at room temperature
  • 125 grams (1 1/3 cups) of almond flour (I used Albert Heijn almond flour)
  • 75 grams (1/2 cup) gluten-free flour or sieved spelt flour**
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 50 ml (1.7 fl. oz) strong coffee
  • 40 g (1/4 cup) chopped dark chocolate
  • 1 handful of chopped pecans or walnuts
  • A 26 cm cake tin


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 F).
  2. Mash the bananas with a fork and place them in a bowl.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time and beat them into the batter with a whisk.
  4. Make a cup of strong coffee. Let it cool a bit and then stir through the batter.
  5. Add almond flour, gluten-free flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Stir everything together.
  6. Chop the nuts and the chocolate finely and stir them into the batter.
  7. Bake the banana bread in the oven for 45 minutes. Keep a close eye on the bread during baking, if it darkens too quickly, you can cover the baking tin with some aluminum foil.
  8. After baking, let the banana bread cool completely before cutting it into pieces. You can keep the banana bread in the fridge for 3-4 days or you can freeze it in slices. Handy as a snack for later.


*Use bananas that are not too ripe because ripe bananas are higher in FODMAPs. Choose bananas that are yellow, but don’t have many brown specs yet.

**Note: for the low FODMAP diet sieved spelt flour is a safe option, but it isn’t gluten-free. If you have to eat strictly gluten-free, you can best use gluten-free flour.
