GAPS Blueberry Banana Coffee Cake

by brenda on April 4, 2012

We have a ton of blueberries in our freezer, and I’ve been trying to think of ways to use them (summer is coming faster than we think, and my kids and I love blueberry picking in the summer!). The Farmer worked from home today (I love those days!) and I wanted to make a better-than-average breakfast, so I made this up and served it along side some eggs. I hope you enjoy this! We thought it was super yummy!

GAPS Coconut Flour Blueberry Banana Coffee Cake

  • 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 bananas, sliced


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

  4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, kefir, vanilla and honey.
  5. Whisk in the baking soda, spices and coconut flour.
  6. Fold in the blueberries and bananas.

Beth, oh sure! Yogurt is a perfect substitute! 🙂

Just starting the GAPS diet. Was wondering about stevia? Is that allowed or discouraged altogether? (for all stages?)


Brenda June 2, 2012 at 12:33 pm

Hi Debra, no, sorry, stevia is not allowed on GAPS.

Thank you for the recipe. I’ve made it twice now and everyone in my family loves it. My bananas were very ripe both times so I just mixed them up with the batter instead of adding slices. Still turned out great!

I accidently signed in as my husband (Jose, below). But I had another comment. I don’t know if it was because I blended in the bananas or just personal preference, but I only added 1/2 cup honey and it was plenty sweet.

Just made these- they are really yummy! My only issue is they are still pretty soggy despite baking for a long time. This is my first time baking with coconut flour…do you have any tricks?

Has anyone tried this with yogurt? I don’t have any kefir around since I can’t eat enough to keep up with the culture…family won’t eat it.


Christine Woods Stuart July 6, 2013 at 2:38 pm

Oops, sorry…somehow missed the other person asking the same question. 🙂


Teresa July 7, 2013 at 10:51 am

Nevermind! Made them again with a touch more flour and only 1/2 cup honey, baked slightly longer, and they are perfect! Yum 🙂

Is baking soda GAPS legal?

I’m on vacation and brought all of the things to make it while here but I just realized I forgot the yogurt at home. After shedding more than a few tears over it, I’m wondering if I can leave it out? Or can the banana’s be mashed to create more bulk if needed? I’m on GAPS so I can’t just run out and buy yogurt. thank you!
