VEGAN CINNAMON & CHOCOLATE CHUNK BANANA BREAD

For week 3 of Great British Bake Off, it’s all about bread! Recently, I’ve only just started to discover how amazing bread actually tastes! I’d never been a huge bread lover, but I think after all those years of demonising carbs and banishing bread from my kitchen, I’ve developed a real hankering for the stuff and poached eggs on toast is a firm favourite in my current routine.

  1. 2 1/2 ripe bananas 
  2. 85g coconut oil 
  3. 1/2 cup coconut sugar 
  4. 95g ground almonds 
  5. 150g gluten free flour 
  6. 2 tsp baking powder
  7. 1/3 tsp bicarb 
  8. Pinch sea salt 
  9. 2 tsp cinnamon 
  10. 1/2 tsp ground ginger 
  11. Large Handful Chopped dark chocolate- 85% or above 

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat your oven to 180c and grease a loaf tin with a little coconut oil. 
  • In a food processor, combine the bananas, coconut oil and coconut sugar and blend until well combined. 
  • Add in the rest of the ingredients (apart from the chocolate) and blend again, so that you’re left with a smooth cake batter. 
  • Stir through the dark chocolate and pour the mixture into your loaf tin. Sprinkle some extra chocolate on the top and pop this into the oven to bake for 30 minutes.
