Banana and Cinnamon Loaf

Rain, hail or sunshine, Banana bread/loaf is one of those ‘treats’ that always goes down so perfectly with a nice cup of tea. This Banana and cinnamon loaf is no exception. 

In fact, my Daughter is not a huge banana fan but loves cinnamon, so this get her tick of approval! Straight into the lunchbox it goes!!

Oh, if you could only smell this loaf when it came out of the oven…divine.

The best part about this banana loaf, is you can place all your ingredients in the food processor or blender, whiz it all up, pour into your loaf pan and pop in the oven…So simple, quick to prepare, and like all my recipes, full of nutrition.

Funnily, my oven is playing up ( a long story I won’t bore you with…) but fortunately, I have a little toaster oven and thought, why not? I popped it in there and to my pleasant surprise, it came out a treat. Yay for me.

This loaf/bread is Gluten, nut, dairy, grain and refined sugar free, in fact it has very little sugar in any form, but is sweetened enough with the banana and a little rice malt syrup.

Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 3 Large over ripe banana's
  • 4 medium sized eggs
  • 3 Tbs Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 1 Tbs Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tbs rice malt syrup
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Flour
  • 1- 1 1/2 Tbs Ground Cinnamon powder * we like cinnamon, so use 1 1/2tbs, but reduce to 1 tbs if too much.
  • 1 1/2 tsp Bicarb soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
Servings: People
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180C and line a loaf tin ( 12x23cm).
  2. *Use 2 1/2 of your banana's for the mixture and keep 1/2 for placing on top of loaf. In a food processor/blender, add all your wet ingredients, then your dry ingredients. Blend/whizz till well combined. Approx 45sec-1 minute. Don't worry if you don't have this equipment. You can mix in a bowl, just add your wet ingredients first in one bowl. Then dry ingredients in separate bowl. Whisk, then add together and mix till well combined.
  3. Pour your mixture into the prepared lined pan, slice the remaining banana and place gently on top of mixture, then place into your oven. Cook for 45-50 minutes. I like to check after 45 minutes, by sticking a skewer in the centre of laof. If it comes our clean, it is ready. If a little batter in on the skewer, then place back in for another 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and place on a cooling tray, to cool slightly. Serve along side a nice cup of hot tea or even take a slice for breakfast on the go!
