My recipe is Gluten free, Refined Sugar Free, Egg Free and Dairy Free but it’s still the BEST Banana bread I’ve ever eaten… I know right, WTF?! You actually won’t believe it until you try it.
90 gms Coconut Oil
½ cup Coconut Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla extract
100 gms Pitted Dates – finely chopped
½ cup of Water
1 ½ cups of mashed overripe Banana (about 3 medium Bananas)
300 gms Gluten Free Self Raising Flour
2 heaped tsp Gluten Free Baking Powder
1 tbs White Chia Seeds
2 tbs Cacao Nibs
- Preheat your fan-forced oven to 160°c and line a 20cm x 10cm loaf tin with baking paper.
- Using an electric mixer, beat together the coconut oil, coconut sugar and vanilla extract until smooth. Add the dates and water, then beat again to incorporate. Now, beat in the banana until well mixed.
- In a small bowl combine all the dry ingredients. Stir through the banana mix until fully incorporated, but be careful not to over mix. Transfer the batter to your lined tin then bake for 1 hour or until a skewer comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Eat fresh or toasted with your favourite nut butter, or (if you’re like me) generous lashings of real, salted butter – I’m healthy, but some things just can’t be replaced…
