Beautiful Banana Bread - GF, SF, VEGAN, PALEO


I usually don't have bananas lying around the house (TBH I am not a huge fan of bananas!) and so when I do they normally end up sitting on the countertop, getting browner by the day! The only upside to this is that it means I have perfectly overripe bananas for my Beautiful Banana Bread!

This one-bowl (you can thank me later when you're doing the washing up!), paleo, and vegan choc chip BB is also grain-free, gluten-free and refined sugar free AND it's a much healthier and hormone-friendly version of traditional BB.

So let me stop yapping on and get down to the good stuff!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 cup mashed banana (about 3 large bananas)

  • 2 cups almond flour

  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour

  • 3 tablespoons ground flaxseed

  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar

  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk, I used almond milk

  • 4 tablespoons liquid coconut oil

  • 1/3 cup creamy nut butter, I use organic almond butter

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • Dark chocolate chopped into chunks or dark choc chips (just make sure they are vegan and sugar free)

  • Half a cup of chopped walnut

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 150 degrees celsius and grease a bread dish with coconut oil and/or line with parchment paper.

  • In a large bowl, mix together the banana, ground flax, coconut sugar, milk, coconut oil, nut butter and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.

  • Mix in the almond flour, coconut flour and baking powder until well combined with no clumps.

  • Fold in the dark chocolate and walnuts then add to bread dish and bake for about 50-60 minutes (or until toothpick comes out clean!) (top with halved banana for extra decoration)

  • Allow the bread to cool, then slice.

RECIPE NOTES

*for an extra treat top with nut butter, coconut yoghurt, nuts etc.

*Store leftovers in an airtight container for three days, in the fridge for a week, or freezer for two months.
