Cannabanana Bread

Thank you for supporting this site with purchases made through links in this article.

This cannabis-infused, gluten free/vegan optional, no-added-sugar banana bread is currently topping the list of my favorite things. It’s so tasty and the texture is incredible. But the best thing about it? It feels so good afterwards. There’s no processed sugar, wheat or dairy in the recipe (unless you want to use it and it’s what you have on hand… feel free to substitute).

In my humble opinion, most edibles are just too damned sweet. In the commercial edibles world, sugar seems to be king, but I believe it messes with the cannabis experience by putting you on a glucose roller coaster that ends in a crash.

Don’t get me wrong. This banana bread is still sweet (especially if you decide to be a badass and add chocolate chips), but it wont make your teeth feel like they’re going to shake loose or give you a sugar high induced headache.

If you want more control over dosage, you can make this bread with regular coconut oil and shmear some cannabis infused coconut oil right on it. Sprinkle a little salt on top and have yourself a delightful summer afternoon. 

 In other news, I fixed the glitch in the Wake & Bake: an ebook download process and it should be working just dandy now! Download away! I really want to take a second to thank you guys so much for your patience while I wrangle the tech side of this whole blogging thing. Your support, advice and words of encouragement are what keep this project alive. I just love the shit out of you guys.

Also… you may have noticed that the print versions of the book are “out of stock”. I’ve been getting questions about this, so I figured it’s time for an update. I am currently out of books and I’ve decided to fix some print errors and put a new ordering system in place to make the whole process run more smoothly. I’ll let you know when they’re back in production.

I’m moving more towards digital media (ebooks, cooking class downloads, etc.) these days, but I know there’s something nice about holding a cookbook in your hands, getting it covered in cupcake batter and eventually selling it at a yard sale, so I’m going to do my damndest to get those back in production asap.

On that note, in the next few weeks/months, I’m going to be putting out a few small ebooks about tinctures, calculating dosage, infusing oils, breakfast recipes, cannabis lube, baked goods, ?, etc…. and I would love to know what you want to learn. Hit up the comments section below and let me know what you’ve been wondering about and what you’d love to see more of.

Anywho! Now that we’ve gotten past all of the brass tacks, it’s time to get knee deep in some nanner bread delight!

This was one of the easiest and most satisfying recipes that I’ve made recently and I’m so excited to share it with you. I’m working on getting processed sugar out of my little world and this is an easy recipe to use liquid sweetener in. I used local honey, but if you’re a honey-free vegan, feel free to use maple (like Coombs Family Farms 100% Pure Organic Maple Syrup, Grade B, 32-oz.) or agave.

Dosage

This recipe uses 1/3 cup of cannabis-infused coconut oil. My oil is usually about 30mg per tsp which makes this recipe approximately eight 60mg servings. Always test your oil in advance to figure out what dosage works for you. For measurement’s sake, it’s best to test in 1 tsp intervals. Start low and go slow. It can sometimes take several hours for the full effect to set in, and taking too much can be a total day-ender.

Cannabis-Infused Banana Bread

Let’s talk substitutions right quick. I haven’t tested any of these subs first hand, but I’d like to share some general substitution guides so you can experiment with what you have in your own kitchen. I’ll be trying the paleo version the next time I make this, because I’m getting a sneaky suspicion that paleo edibles are where it’s at when it comes to avoiding peaky blood sugar and a peaky cannabis experience.

For conventional infused banana bread substitute:

1/3 Cup Green Monster Oil = 1/3 Cup Cannabutter 

1/2 Cup Honey = 3/4 Cup Sugar + 1T Water

1 3/4 Cups Gluten Free Flour = 1 3/4 Cups All Purpose or Whole Wheat Pastry Flour

For Vegan-Style Cannabis Infused Banana Bread Substitute:

1/2 Cup Honey = 1/2 Cup Maple Syrup or Agave

For Paleo-Style Cannabis Infused Banana Bread Substitute:

1 3/4 Cup Gluten Free Flour = 1 3/4 Cups Paleo Flour Blend

Method:

1. Preheat oven 325° Fahrenheit (165° Celsius). Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan (like this gorgeous Le Creuset one)

2. In a large mixing bowl, beat:

1/3 Cup Melted Green Monster Oil (Cannabis Infused Coconut Oil)

1/2 Cup Honey

2 Flax Eggs/Chicken Eggs

1/3 Cup Warm Water

3. Stir in:

1 Cup Smashed Bananas

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

4. Then add:

1/2 tsp Salt

1 tsp Baking Soda

1 tsp Cinnamon

5. Slowly stir in:

1 3/4 Cup Gluten Free Flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill)

until just combined.

6. (OPTIONAL) Fold in:

1/4 Cup Chocolate Chips, Walnuts, Toasted Sunflower Seeds, etc…

7. Bake for approx 60 minutes or until golden on top and cooked all the way through. Insert a toothpick (or a chopstick if you’re desperate) and check to see if it comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes (if you have that kind of self control). Move to a cooling rack for 30 minutes before slicing… Or if you’re us, just slice it in the loaf pan while it’s still warm and pass it around.

8. Enjoy! Don’t forget to holla in the comments section below and let me know what you’d like to know more about. I want to cover cannabis cooking topics that you actually want to read about.

    Just a tip. I store my bananas in the freezer and when i have enough for cooking i have them available. Also they carmelize and have more of their own sweetness.

    I absolutely loved this recipe. It was easy and I added apricots and sultanas and it was munchie heaven plus healthy. How do I get a recipe book as I live in Australia.

      Hi Anthea!

      I’m so glad you loved it! The book is out of print at the moment and I’m considering switching over to digital books completely. You can order a digital edition of Wake & Bake HERE.

      Thanks so much for reaching out!

    Hey great recipe! I made some of the infused oil a few days ago, and this is the best edible use so far! I did have a quick question about the temperature of the oven, related to the vaporization of helpful medicinal component’s in the oil. Isnt 325 degrees to high? Or am I missing a key factor?

    I have the same question as above on baking/cooking with coconut oil in baked goods. Doesn’t this have the potential to reduce medicinal properties.
    Thanks in advance!

    Why does it say on the Cannabanana recipe card, “1/3 cup water or 1 cup smashed bananas”? seems like you’d need bananas for banana bread. Was that a misprint? Thanks!

      I was thinking the same thing, and maybe there was something cut off on the line of “1/3 cup water or” Maybe its water or milk?

    You should first try it with regular oil to see how it turns out, then do the cannabis. That way you know how to make it. If you mess that up, that’s a lot of money.
