COCONUT BANANA LOAF

Ready in 1 hour 30 minutes | Serves 8


The texture of this loaf is so on point, more cake than bread and it’s absolutely delicious. Another reason to love this loaf – you don’t need to blend or beat anything! You can get away with using just one large bowl, and most of the make time here is oven time. You just need 15 minutes or so to mix everything together.

Totally addictive! The best way to enjoy this, hands down, is warmed or toasted with coconut or cashew butter. It tastes incredibly decadent but it’s actually healthy!

Ingredients

½ cup milk of your choice

½ teaspoon Organic RAW Apple Cider Vinegar

2 cups Organic Spelt Flour, Wholemeal, Mini-pack

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon Organic Ground Cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla powder

pinch of salt

½ cup Organic Olive Oil, Extra Virgin Cold-Pressed

¾ cup Organic Coconut Sugar

4 small ripe bananas (mashed)

½ cup walnuts (plus extra for the top)

Method

Preheat your oven to 175°C and line a loaf tin with baking paper.

In a large bowl, add your milk and apple cider vinegar. Let these two sit for a few minutes.

Now add in the remaining ingredients. Gently fold through with a wooden spoon until combined.

Transfer the batter into your lined loaf tin. Sprinkle over with some extra walnuts. Cover your loaf with foil to prevent the top burning.

Bake for around 60 minutes. At the 45 minute mark, insert a skewer into the centre loaf to see if it is done. It should come out mostly clean. It may or may not need the extra 10 minutes depending on your oven.

Once ready, remove from the tine and transfer to a cooling rack. Leave to sit for around 15 minutes or it will be difficult to slice.

Enjoy as is or toasted (or not) with your fave nut butter.
