Here’s another DELICIOUS recipe from the wonderful Brooke Meredith, founder and Editor-In-Cheif of A Conscious Collection! Her Paleo Banana Bread recipe is hands down the most scrummy thing we’ve made this week and she’s allowed us to share it with you! Enjoy!
Finally; A recipe for healthy banana bread. For my fellow fit-friends – no worries, you can thank me later. For you newbie’s – embrace yourself. What? Banana bread isn’t healthy? Ha, if you are one of those who have been fooled into thinking the delicious moist, bursting with flavour, easy to grab alongside your morning coffee companion is a better choice over an egg and bacon roll…..think again my friend. Don’t worry I was once fooled, or not so much fooled but naive to the fact that I was pretty much eating a whopping slice of cake for breakfast. YES, CAKE! Or equivalent of. So here’s my healthy take on this classic recipe!
Three smashed over ripe banana around (300g)
3 free range eggs
2 tbs raw honey / or rice malt syrup
1 tbs organic maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla essence or scraping on 1 vanilla bean
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp bicarb soda activated in some lemon juice
1 1/2 cups almond meal
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup chia seed
Pecans / walnuts / almonds
Preheat your oven to 160 degrees celsius
1. Place banana, eggs, coconut oil, vanilla, maple syrup, honey, cinnamon, bi-carb in a bowl and mix till well combined.
2. Add remaining ingredients and whisk till mixture looks like a cake batter.
3. Place your mixture in a well greased loaf pan, coat the bottom of the pan with desiccated coconut to prevent the mixture sticking.
4. Top with desired seeds or nuts.
4. Bake for around 45-55 minutes.
Almond meal tends to burn at a higher rate, so if the top it nice and brown and still has more cooking time place some foil or baking paper over the top and place back in the oven. I topped my banana bread with cottage cheese, banana, almond butter and honey.
