When 3pm hits and you want something sweet, instead of reaching for the chocolate or processed cookies go for something much healthier! Cut yourself a slice of this delicious Grain Free Banana Bread. Free from any nasties and full of good-for-you ingredients you can have your cake and eat it! If you’re a fan of the banana flavour you could also try making my Chocolate Banana Muffins with Pecans
Start by preheating the oven to 180C (350F). Make sure that the bananas that you use are very ripe (plenty of brown spots on them). This makes them sweeter and easier to mash and means you don’t need so much sweetener in the Banana Bread. In fact, if you’re used to a sugar-free diet you can skip the honey altogether as it will be plenty sweet enough without it.
Mash the bananas in a mixing bowl and add the almond flour (ground almonds), eggs, melted coconut oil and honey. Mix well to combine all the ingredients together. Add the bicarbonate of soda and mix again.
Line or grease a Loaf Tin (9x5ins) and pour the Banana Bread mixture into the tin. I like to use these Loaf Tin Liners just because they make everything so much simpler but you could always cut some parchment paper to size if you prefer.
Bake the Banana Bread in the oven for 35-40 mins or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. If the top starts to brown before the cake is ready, cover with a piece of tin-foil to prevent it burning. I like to take it out after about 35 mins as it’s only just cooked through which means you get a more moist, gooey cake.
Allow to cool before slicing as it will be easier to do so when it’s not straight out of the oven.
This banana bread is moist and gooey and so delicious. Sweet enough that you can eat it on its own with a cup of tea or you can top it with bananas, peanut butter, honey, anything that you like. Perfect as a snack when you want to treat yourself to something delicious. Try my Cinnamon Raisin Bread too if you like a great tea time snack!
It will keep for up to a week in an airtight container and can also be frozen easily.
