Paleo banana bread
2 cups almond meal
2 Tbs nut butter (we like peanut)
2 Tbs coconut oil, and a little bit extra to grease the pan
2 very ripe bananas, mushed up
1 Tbs chia seeds
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and crushed
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Coconut yoghurt or butter, to serve
Start by preheating the oven to 180°C, then grease a 10cm x 20cm loaf tin with coconut oil and line with baking paper.
In a bowl, combine the almond meal, eggs, nut butter and coconut oil. Mix well into a nice batter.
Now add the banana, chia seeds, shredded coconut, walnuts and cinnamon and combine well.
Pour the mixture into the tin and use a knife or spatula to level the surface. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until the loaf is golden on top.
Remove from the oven and allow it to cool completely in the tin — that's if you can resist eating it — before turning it out. Serve with some coconut yoghurt or butter. Tastes great toasted!
