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 180ยฐC**

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.

"Are you lost? Do you know where you live?" @ladygillydoggie was quite concerned about the welfare of the lost #puppy we took in this afternoon. Luckily the story has a happy ending and we found her family.

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.... Where's our food??????? When Jackie Chan and @justinbieberkittie announce that their food container is empty and demand replenishment, but it's too late to go out and buy their usual #royalcanin for seniors. ๐Ÿˆ ๐Ÿ“ธ @wildwillfisher ๐Ÿˆ #dinner #catsofinstagram #instacat

In an effort to #reduce #waste, I've started to #crochet reusable face cleansing pads, which I'm using with my #homemade #micellarwater. The pads are amazing on your skin, and you save money and tons of cotton wool in the trash.
It's hard to feel #bodypositive when you're about to go for your first #swim squad session in ages, can't fit into any of your cozzies, and are not sure you can actually swim the 300m you confidently ticked off on the form. First #Road2ITU training session with coach STeve from @embarktri in an hour, and I'm not ready. #triathlon #training
