Sue Richards – Banana Bread


This is a Pete Evans recipe so it is Paleo and I have found it fantastic, and have done it with my own twist….

Try it you will be very happy with it.

P.S  Also, just as a tip  I grease the tin with butter or spray oil , works a treat..enjoy

75 g (3/4 cup) coconut flou r

75 g (3/4 cup) almond  meal

1 teaspoon  ground  cinnamon

2 teaspoons baki ng soda

pinch of sea salt

5  very ripe bananas

6 eggs

1/4 teaspoon vanilla powder

4 1/2 tablespoons honey, plus extra for  brushing


Preheat  oven to  160°C. Grease a 20 cm  x  12 cm  loaf tin with a little coconut oil, then  line the base and sides with  baking  paper.

In a large bowl , combine the coconut flour, almond meal, cinnamon, baking soda and sale and mix well.

Pl ace 4 1/2 of the bananas in a bowl and mash thoroughly. Slice the remaining half banana diagonally  into three or four pieces. Set  aside.

In another bowl, whisk  together  the eggs, vanilla and  honey, then  stir in the mashed  banana.

Pour the liquid ingredients  into the dry ingredients and stir  with a wooden spoon until thoroughly combined. Add the coconut oil and continue stirring until incorporated.

Spoon  the batter  into  the prepared  loaf tin and  spread  top evenly with a spatula. Arrange the banana slices on top. Bake in the oven   for 15 minutes then cover with foil to prevent the top burning and cook for a further 45-50 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Remove the bread from the oven and cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then carefully turn out onto a wire rack. Brush a little extra honey over the cop and cool for 20-30 minutes. Slice and serve toasted spread with some coconut oil or almond  butter.
