‘Free From’ Banana Bread by Casey-Lee

At our place every time we cook or bake something we add organic cricket powder to it. This time I was craving banana bread. I started to look for an easy and yummy recipe online and I found the best one ever! The “Free From” Banana Bread recipe created by the lovely Casey-Lee from Live, Love, Nourish is just what I was looking for. Easy to make, just a few ingredients and free from gluten, dairy, soy, nuts, eggs and sugar. I added just 1/4 cup of Grilo Organic Cricket Powder to add extra protein to it and guess what… No bread left!


  • 1/4 cup of Grilo Organic Cricket Powder
  • 4 large ripe bananas (500g peeled), cut into pieces (+ 1 extra to decorate)
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) coconut oil, melted
  • 3/4 cup (110g) buckwheat flour
  • 3/4 cup (60g) organic desiccated coconut
  • 2 tsp gf baking powder
  • 1 tsp organic vanilla powder


Pre-heat fan-forced oven to 180°C.
In a blender or food processor blend banana and melted coconut oil until smooth (be careful not to over blend).
In a medium mixing bowl combine organic cricket powder, buckwheat flour, coconut, baking powder and vanilla. Add banana and coconut oil mixture and combine well. Pour batter into a lined loaf tin.

Bake in oven for 55-60 minutes or until cooked through. Allow to cool on a baking before slicing.
