  • 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom
  • 4 overripe bananas
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cup sugar
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled (I use grass-fed)


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x5 bread pan.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and cardamom to a large bowl and mix to combine.
  • In a medium size bowl, mash the banana. Add in the eggs, vanilla, sugar, maple syrup, and butter. Mix until well blended.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  • Pour into the greased bread pan and bake in the oven for 50-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
