What's great about it

This delicious sunshine in a loaf is featured in my new Healthy Baking cookbook. A tropical take on the classic banana bread, this vegan version uses desiccated coconut and almond meal to create a lusciously sweet and nutty flavour. It is also gluten-free and egg free, making it perfect for anyone with a food allergy or intolerance.

Ingredients

450 g (15 3/4 oz) smashed banana

60 ml (2 oz / 1/4 cup) organic maple syrup

60 ml (2 oz / 1/4 cup) extra virgin olive oil or macadamia nut oil

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons gluten-free baking powder

180 g (6 oz ) desiccated coconut

180 g (6 oz ) almond meal

Method

 

  1. Preheat your oven to 160°C fan-forced (320°F).
  2. Combine banana, maple syrup, olive oil, cinnamon and baking powder into a mixing bowl.
  3. Add coconut and almond meal and mix well.
  4. Spoon mixture into a lined loaf tin.
  5. Bake for 1 hour until cooked through – test with a skewer rest before removing from the oven.
  6. Cool completely before removing from the tin.
  7. Store in the fridge and enjoy.
  8. Serve warm by toasting slices on a hot plate or pan.

Notes and Inspiration

Use coconut oil in place of olive oil.

Serve toasted with nut butter or ricotta and honey.

Perfect for school lunch boxes.
