  • 2 ripe bananas + 12 extra if decorating the top
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons coconut nectar (agave nectar, honey or maple syrup works)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black sesame seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon white sesame seeds
  • coconut oil spray for greasing the skillet
  • flaked sea salt for sprinkling on top


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Mash the bananas in a large bowl.
  3. Add the tahini, eggs, coconut nectar, and vanilla to the bowl.
  4. Whisk to combine.
  5. Add the almond flour, baking powder, and sea salt.
  6. Whisk again until combined.
  7. Spray your oven-proof skillet with coconut oil and pour the banana bread mixture into it.
  8. Use a spatula to spread it evenly across the bottom.
  9. Optional: cut another banana in half lengthwise and place it on top. This just to make it pretty, but not necessary for the recipe.
  10. Sprinkle with the black and white sesame seeds and bake for 25 – 30 minutes.
  11. Once done baking, sprinkle with flaked sea salt.
