Banana Bread

banana bread

Is there anything better than a slice of warm banana bread fresh from the oven?! It's great way to use up bananas which are past their best and is arguably the ultimate comfort food. This low added sugar version has a dense texture which means that it works well as a "bread". It tastes incredible smeared with my Healthy "Nutella" (click here for the recipe) or peanut butter - so good!

Three great health benefits: good source of fibre, beneficial for brain health, beneficial for heart health

Makes 1 loaf
Freezes well

4 ripe bananas (which have turned brown), peeled
1/3 cup coconut oil (liquid), plus a little for greasing the tin
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Pinch of sea salt
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla paste
1 & 1/2 cups buckwheat flour
1/2 cup walnut pieces (dust lightly with a little buckwheat flour)

1) Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a loaf tin using a little coconut oil.
2) In a mixing bowl, mash the bananas. Add the coconut oil and stir.
3) Add the bicarbonate of soda and salt, followed by the sugar and vanilla. Stir well to combine.
4) Fold in the buckwheat flour and finally, stir in the walnuts.
5) Pour the mixture into the loaf tin and bake for approximately 40-45 minutes, until a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean when removed. Set aside to cool.
