I love banana bread and was inspired to make a healthier version.  I felt it was equally delicious.  This bread is  guilt free and is loaded with natural sweetness from the honey and bananas, crunch from the nuts and a good breakfast choice.

Ingredients

2 Cups Almond meal

1/2 cup of LSA or ground flaxseed

1/4 cup chopped walnuts

1/4 cup crushed almond

1/4 cup psyllium husk

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp. ground cinnamon

2 tbsp. honey

4-6  dates chopped

2 tbsp.. cocoa powder

3 eggs

2 tsp. coconut oil

1 tsp. vanilla extract

3 ripe bananas

1/4 cup of milk (use your favourite milk)

 

Method

Preheat oven to 160ºC Fan force.

Apply oil in a standard loaf tin and line the tray with baking paper to prevent sticking.

Remove two bowls.  In one bowl add the dry ingredients, almond meal, LSA, walnuts, psyllium husk, dates, baking powder, cinnamon, cocoa powder and mixed spices.

In the other bowl, add the wet ingredients, milk, mashed banana, eggs, coconut oil, honey vanilla extract. Whisk the wet ingredients together until combined.

Pour the wet ingredients onto the dry ingredients and mix well.

Once it is mixed add to the loaf tin and bake for 45 minutes.  Check to see if skewer is dry, if it is then it is ready if not bake it for another 5 minutes.

Put mixture in loaf tin and place it in the oven for 35-45 minutes.
