The Healthiest Banana Bread you ever did taste.
This recipe is DELICIOUS.
It’s a recipe adapted from the ‘I Quit Sugar’ team and is just delightful. I made a few tweaks and adapted to what ingredients I had on hand and it turned out really (really) good.
I’m no banana bread ‘connoisseur’, I would usually pass on it due to it’s HIGH sugar content. But not this one, this recipe includes some good healthy fats, protein and slow-release carbs. So can be considered a pretty ‘good’ treat.
~ 1/2 cup buckwheat flour (or spelt if not GF)
~ 1/2 cup almond meal
~ 1 heaped teaspoon baking soda
~ 1 heaped teaspoon cinnamon
~ 1 teaspoon organic coconut sugar
~ 1/2 teaspoon himalayan rock salt
~ 4 – 5 dried dates chopped roughly
~ 1 tablespoon cacao nibs
~ 1 tablespoon raw sunflower seeds (for the top of loaf)
~ 3 large very ripe bananas
~ 2 free-range eggs (could use chia gel here if vegan)
~ 3 tablespoons raw coconut oil (melted)
~ 3 tablespoons milk (of your choice- cows, almond, coconut)
~ 1 tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar
~ Heat the oven to 180’C on fan bake.
~ Throw all dry ingredients (except sunflower seeds) into a large mixing bowl and stir together.
~ In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, coconut oil, milk and vinegar. Then add the bananas and roughly mash these through as you mix (not tooo smooth).
~ Add the wet ingredients to the dry and fold through until fully mixed.
~ Pour mixture into a lined loaf tin. Sprinkle the top with sunflower seeds and extra cinnamon.
~ Place in bottom tray of oven and leave to cook for about 50 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
~ Once ready, take out from oven and leave to cool for at least 30 minutes before devouring.
~ Delicious on its own or spread with some coconut oil, butter or lashings of peanut butter.
~ YUM and healthy.
Hope you enjoy this one, it’s easy and remember to switch out ingredients as you see fit.
*Warning: Avoid baking this unless you have others around to help you eat it. Otherwise you’ll realize you and your partner have devoured a loaf between the two of you in two days. Not as hard as it sounds, in fact a very easy and delicious feat. But probably not recommended.
