The perfect treat at any time, whether you like it toasted, buttered, with nut butter or served warm with some Greek yoghurt. Banana bread is a popular choice and the options are endless. You can add chopped walnuts or even add some dark sugar free chocolate chips! In this recipe the mixed berries add that little something extra. It’s moist and perfectly sweet and the bursting berries make it look so good. No refined sugar at all so you can enjoy it even more.
4 medium bananas
300g ground almonds
3 tbsp. maple syrup or honey
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
60ml Melted Coconut Oil
100g mixed berries ( I used the frozen ones from Aldi)
Preheat oven to 180c (fan)
In a mixing bowl mash the bananas with a fork, then add the maple syrup (or honey), coconut oil, vanilla extract, eggs and mix well.
In a separate bowl mix the ground almonds, baking powder, cinnamon and mix. Then add it to the wet ingredients.
Fold in the berries and pour into a lined loaf tin.
Bake for 45 – 50 minutes, until golden and crispy on top. To make sure it is cooked through, stick a knife or skewer into the centre, if it comes out wet, keep baking!
