Banana Coffee Cake Recipe

If you’ve been here a while, you’ll know that I love baking with bananas. I mean, just check out one of my MANY banana bread flavors like my, Healthy Chocolate Banana Bread, Birthday Cake Banana Bread, Blueberry Lemon Banana Bread, Raspberry Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, and so many more! This Banana Streusel Coffee Cake Recipe is a really unique one though. It doesn’t really taste like banana bread, because we create a delicious streusel topping to go over it. It really takes this coffee cake to the next level!

Banana Coffee Cake With Streusel Topping

My absolute favorite part of the coffee cake has to be the streusel topping. This streusel topping is very similar to my Apple Crisp, Berry Crisp, and Peach Crisp toppings, with just a couple of tweaks. And yes, all those crisp recipes are secretly healthy too 🙂

Banana Coffee Cake (Easy + Healthy!)

Banana Coffee Cake Easy Healthy

You only need 10 simple ingredients to make this AMAZING gluten-free Banana Coffee Cake. This is the perfect recipe to use 3 ripe bananas in. We use oat flour and a touch of coconut sugar to make it the perfect secretly healthy coffee cake.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes


Streusel Topping

  • 1 Tbs Coconut Sugar
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • Pinch Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 2 Tbs Oat Flour
  • ¼ Cup + 2 Tbs Rolled Oats (or quick oats)
  • 2 Tbs Cubbed Cold Grass-Fed Butter (can sub vegan butter or solid coconut oil)
  • Optional: ½ Cup - 1 Cup roughly chopped Walnuts or Nut of Choice (depending on how nutty you like the topping)


1. Preheat oven to 350 F. and line a 2 quart baking dish or 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper or grease with coconut oil. In a medium bowl, add the ripe bananas and mash with the back of a fork until smooth. Add in eggs, coconut sugar, and vanilla. Mix until smooth.

2. Add in oat flour, almond flour, cinnamon, pink salt, and baking powder. Fold until combined. Transfer batter to baking dish and set aside.

3. In another medium bowl add all streusel ingredients except butter and nuts (if using). Mix until combined. Then, add in cubed butter and mix with pastry blender, a fork, or your hands until it looks like coarse crumbs. Lastly, fold in nuts if using.

4. Cover banana coffee cake batter with streusel topping and bake at 350 F. for 25-32 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs and the top is golden (mine was perfect after 30 min).

5. Let cool for 10 minutes before cutting and enjoying! Serve with your favorite ice cream and coffee. Store in an airtight container on the counter for 3 days, in the fridge for up to 10 days or freeze for up to 3 months!


  1. Egg Replacement: I have not tested this recipe using a flax egg, but if you decide to do this just use 1 Tbs ground flax + 2 Tbs water! It should come out great still! Let me know if you make it this way.
  2. Flour Replacement: I have not tested this using just oat flour. My chocolate banana bread works well using just oat flour. If you use only oat flour, please let me know how it turns out!

    Hi, really stupid question? Why is called banana coffee cake and there isn’t any coffee in it? Curious to know. I will definitely making this, i have few friends who are gluten free. We will be enjoying this. Thank you.

      Hi Diana! This is not a stupid question at all. Coffee cake actually never has coffee in it! Isn’t that crazy?! It’s more of… this cake is made to be eaten WITH coffee. I hope that makes sense. Let me know when you make it and how it turns out 🙂
