Celebrating Banana Bread

Rainy Saturday morning.  Hubby's birthday and I had no idea what cake to bake. I saw bunch of ripe bananas in the fruit bowl and there it was - my ingredients for banana bread!  

There's something heart-warming about banana bread.  It's great for breakfast or to enjoy with a cup of herbal tea.  

Free from gluten and refined sugars. 

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 160ml organic honey 
  • 60g organic unsalted butter (you can also use melted coconut oil) 
  • 2 eggs
  • 250g gluten-free flour (I mixed buckwheat and almond flour)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 100g chopped pecans
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseeds
  • 1 tbsp grated lemon zest

Preheat oven to 180C and grease loaf tin with little coconut oil. Put butter bananas, eggs, honey, flour, baking powder and bicarb soda into bowl and blend with hand blender until smooth. You can also use a food processor. Add chopped pecans, flaxseeds and lemon zest and mix in with a wooden spoon. Pour the mixture in the tin and bake about 40min until cooked through (insert a skewer or little knife into centre and if it comes away clean, it's ready). Allow to cool before taking out of the tin.

Slice and enjoy!
