Banana bread has seriously got to be one of the best things going around. Perfect for lunch boxes, morning teas or ‘bring a plate’ style picnics. It is so simple to make and without all the added butter and sugar of a regular loaf, this clean healthy recipe means you can toast it, microwave it or spread some peanut butter on it, totally guilt free anytime of the day.
BANANA BREAD – makes 1 loaf
3 large over ripe bananas mashed
3 Tbs honey or maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil melted
1tsp bi-carb soda
1tsp baking powder
3 Tbs chia seeds
2 cups almond meal or spelt flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla extract
Extra: shredded coconut or banana sliced for decoration
METHOD: Combine all wet ingredients in a bowl. Add the dry ingredients and pour into greased or lined loaf tin. Place in preheated 160 degrees oven for 50 minutes until nice and brown. Keeps in fridge for 1 week.
Remember that it is a ‘bread’ so it is supposed to have a nice dark crust.
HOT TIP – I love to eat my banana bread microwaved and smeared with 1 Tbs peanut butter and 1/2 banana sliced topped with cinnamon. Heaven!
Slice up and freeze for morning tea!
