Nutty Banana Bread

22 Aug

Want to fill your house with the delicious smell of banana bread? Who could resist that?!

I made this because I was dissatisfied with the selection of gluten free breads at the store. I wanted something perfect for breakfast – EFA and protein packed from nuts and sweetened by fruit – to keep me full throughout the morning. So I present to you this deliciously moist gluten free banana bread! This was the first loaf of bread I’ve ever made! I always thought it would be much tougher than it was, if I can do it you can do it! And you probably have all these ingredients already.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of quick oats
  • 1/4 cup of almonds
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds
  • 2 cups of mashed banana (measured after mashing)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs coconut oil (can omit if you want)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or agave
  • 1 and 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tsp stevia
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs (or chocolate chips)
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 cup milk of choice
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grind your 2 cups of oats in a blender until it becomes a flour/powder, put in a large bowl. Grind almonds and flax seeds the same way and put in the bowl. Combine all dry ingredients in that bowl
  2. Mash your bananas in a separate bowl and add all the wet ingredients to it. Fold wet into dry ingredients and mix well. Add the cacao and walnuts last and mix in.
  3. Pour into a greased 9×5 loaf pan and bake for 55 minutes. If the insides are not done then but the top is, put a piece of foil over it and bake 5-10 minutes longer.
  4. After removing from the oven, let cool for 10 minutes before slicing.

must….not….eat it all…. in one day…….. so hard…
