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.

Another run in the bag. #fnbrunyourcity #ct12run
It's @dynamomagician Part 2 at @grandwestsa for @fazielahwilliams and I and today we are joined by @kraykrisofficial & @heidimeetsworld a.k.a @capetownkidz. Excited to share the #Dynamolive magic with the kids. First up: feeding the hungry teenagers at @spursteakranches.
What an incredible show!!! Nothing excessively flashy (well... apart from that awesome {spoiler alert})... Just good old fashioned quality #magic that deserved its standing ovation. @dynamomagician showed #lovecapetown why he is one of the best in the industry. I can't wait to see him in action again tomorrow, with junior magicians @kraykrisofficial and @heidimeetsworld in tow. Thanks to my Wyrd Sis @fazielahwilliams for having me tag along as your plus one.
WhoHOOOO... Got my programme. Got @kraykrisofficial's favourite deck of cards to have signed later. Super amped for the @dynamomagician show tonight with Wyrd Sis @fazielahwilliams.
Way back in 2013 I had the first of a series of ankle injuries that led to two surgeries, looooong periods of rehab, re-injury, more rehab, and finally being told I shouldn't run again due to an unfortunate little condition called #hypermobility. However... I don't like being told what I can and can't do. And, quite frankly, #knitting isn't my thing, although it was a nice way to stay busy back then. So here I am, running again. The right #runningshoes help me with the extra stability I need to not roll my ankles. And I'm loving every bit of this journey from #couchtomarathon. #flashbackfriday #running #marathon #marathontraining
How awesome is this @capetown_12 racepack collection venue!! You get to see fishies and everything.
Just some basic strength exercises can improve your function and movement within as little as three weeks!! I'm learning so much at the @sportscience_sa #SSISAWomensWellness workshop.
Excited to learn more about running as a woman at the @sportscience_sa #SSISAWomensWellness workshop, how to get stronger and stay injury free. So happy that my Wyrd Sis @fazielahwilliams is here. This makes me really amped to boost my @nycmarathon training.
When you want to nap, but also want to be close to your mom. @ladygillydoggie knows exactly how to get what she wants
