It’s Friday and it’s time to bake!
What better is there than a moist banana bread with some salted butter and cinnamon? Talk about YUM!
So here I have for you a perfectly delicious, easy recipe that will make use of all your banana’s that have gone past the phase where anyone wants to eat it. The more overripe your bananas – the better!
The coconut flour can be replaced with any flour of your choice but I find it gives the bread this soft texture that makes it even more delectable!
This bread is super healthy: no oil, dairy or gluten – and if your bananas are overripe enough – no sugar is needed either!
For this recipe you will need:
- 2 very ripe bananas (the more black spots, the better!)
- ½ cup coconut flour
- ¼ cup flaked almonds
- 4 eggs
- 4 tbsp. coconut sugar (Optional!)
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Find the instructions below or watch me make it here:
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius or 350ºF and line a your loaf pan with baking paper.
- In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork.
- Add the coconut flour, eggs, coconut sugar (optional), cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and vanilla to the mashed banana. Use an electric whisk to beat the batter until smooth.
- Stir in the flaked almonds.
- Pour the batter into the lined loaf pan and bake for 25-35 minutes or until the centre of the loaf has risen and started to crack.
- Remove the loaf from the oven and allow to cool completely before slicing and serving.
- Store the loaf in an airtight container in the fridge. The loaf should last up to a week although you will have probably devoured it by then!
Hope you enjoy the recipe! Let me know what you think in the comments below!
