Grape Seed Flour Banana Bread

Labels: { , , , } | © 2019 | | © 2019 |

Grape seed flour is obtained from winery by-products (skins, seeds and stems) generated during wine-making. In addition to antioxidants, grape seed flour is a good source of magnesium, calcium, iron, healthy fats, protein and fibre. There are several different types of grape seed flour each with a slightly different flavour and colour depending on the grape varietal they were derived from, i.e. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot etc. It is gluten-free and very versatile in the kitchen: as an ingredient in baked goods of all kinds, like bread, pizza or cakes, but also great in yogurt or cereal, or smoothies.

  • 30 g Grape seed flour
  • 70 g Almond flour
  • 180 g Refined spelt flour
  • 5 g Baking powder
  • 7 g Baking soda
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 80 ml Grape juice
  • 60 g Grapeseed oil
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 60 g Coconut syrup
  • 4 Ripe bananas, mashed
  • 100 g Dried cranberries
  • Sprinkles, optional
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Grease and line a 10cm x 26cm loaf pan with baking paper.
  2. Combine grapeseed flour, almond flour, spelt flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and pinch of salt in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk grape juice, grape seed oil, eggs, vanilla, coconut syrup and mashed bananas in a separate bowl. Add the liquid mixture to flour mixture. Stir until just combined. Fold in the dried cranberries.
  4. Pour into the prepared pan. Smooth the surface. Top with the sprinkles if using. Bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into centre comes out clean. Set aside in pan for 10 minutes to cool before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely. | © 2019 | | © 2019 |

Grape seed flour? wow another fab discovery, I am so curious to find some noe. And that is one gorgeous bread, I do love the sprinkle toppoing lol.

Angie, I'm SO excited about this recipe -- mainly because I have never even heard of grape seed flour. I use all sorts of GF flours all the time because my son has Celiac Disease. I am going to find this and buy some immediately. So interesting how the flours vary in flavor and color based on the particular grapes. So cool! And of course, the bread is lovely!

I can never get tired of having banana bread and I am so tempted by your bread especially with the grape seed flour addition that you made. I am so intrigued by it.

Mae Travels 11/6/19 01:24

Very interesting selection of unusual ingredients. I'm afraid I don't like bananas at all, so this wouldn't be for me.

best... mae at

tigerfish 11/6/19 03:17

Is grape seed flour the new kid on the block? :p At first glance, I thought it was chocolate cake because of the bread color; but reading further, it is actually grape seed flour!

Rafeeda AR 11/6/19 11:25

I love how different your recipes are... never heard of grape seed flour... looking at that bread would have initially made me think that it is chocolate... hehe... sounds delicious and healthy...

Balvinder 12/6/19 01:44
