Ingredients

4 ripe bananas
350g hazelnut meal
125g crumbed walnuts
1 cup gluten-free SR flour
½ cup honey
½ cup coconut oil
½ tspn baking powder

Method

Mash the bananas. Add wet ingredients and nuts, then mix. Sift flour, baking powder and soda then add to mixture. Mix until combined.

Pour into a lined, greased loaf tin. Cook at 160˚ C for 50 minutes. Check that mixture is cooked by inserting a metal skewer in the loaf. If it comes out clean, remove from oven. If not, return to oven until cooked.

Comments

  • I like this recipe because it is low GI and fills me.
  • Hazelnut meal can be replaced with almond meal and seeds such as sunflower or pepitas can replace the walnuts.
  • Cherries also work well as a substitute for bananas, although the texture is a little drier.
  • Honey can be substituted with maple syrup or rice syrup.

Enjoy!
