Delicious grain free, sugar free banana loaf

August 17, 2015 by crazymadliving

I love banana loaf, but have found it difficult to create a recipe that is grain free, sugar free, and does not contain any form of corn/maize (important for Da Son).

It’s taken a fair bit of experimentation but I think I finally have a winner.

BIG PLUS: It got a thumbs-up from Da Kids, who showed fantastic willpower to save some for school the next day.

I didn’t take step-by-step photographs and will add them in when I bake this again.

Meanwhile, try this and enjoy!

Delicious grain free, sugar free banana loaf

** Preheat your oven to 180°C**

Mash & Mix:
* 3 small bananas (or two large ones)
* about a quarter cup of finely chopped fresh dates (or, 2 tbsp xylotol)
* 4 large eggs

Sift in & mix well:
* 2 cups almond meal (If you can’t find ground almonds, pop them into your coffee grinder and blitz ’em until you have a fine flour-like consistency
* 1 cup coconut meal (process dried coconut flakes in your coffee grinder)
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Mix in:
* 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
* 1 teaspoon vanilla essence (you can also use vanilla pod to keep things fresh, but it can get expensive)
* OPTIONAL: A handful chopped pecan nuts (or sunflower seeds… whatever takes your fancy)

Once the batter is mixed well, pour it into a loaf tin that is lined with greased baking paper, and bake for approx 45 – 50 minutes, or when your testing skewer comes out clean when inserted.

Let it cool, slice and enjoy.

Wait… what the hell – cut it immediately and let fresh butter melt onto your slice. Inhale that beautiful aroma. Then stuff your face.

My lifelong quest for the best lemon meringue (apart from my own) has ended. #darios in #houtbay

Thank goodness for new clients introducing you to new places. Mmmmm #pizza, in mah belleh!! How amazing is the food at the @capetowncomedy club?!? #tweetseats #ctcomedy #lovecapetown About to pop my @capetowncomedy club cherry. Thanks for the #tweetseats invite ❤❤ Super amped to see the show. Happy #redsockfriday! #shoOops When I work at the @capetownfunnyfestival I'm usually hidden away in some hidey hole, so the audience reaction feels different. Last night I was in the audience, and the experience was absolutely incredible. Hearing the gasps, the uncontrollable giggles, and spontaneous laughter... Seeing the delight in the audience's eyes and how they jump to their feet for a standing ovation... there is magic in the air at the @baxtertheatre, and you'll be a fool to miss this show.

And then their parents surprise you with a ginormous bag of your favourite chocolate. This #Akela has sweaty eyes right now. @justinbieberkittie doesn't care what or who he sits on. As long as it is soft.
