Healthy banana bread
This delicious, easy recipe for banana bread contains clean ingredients and is made with yoghurt to keep it extra moist!
200g self – raising flour
25g ground almonds
1 tsp baking powder
65 g light coconut sugar (or honey, sweetener of choice)
4-5 dates (chopped)
50 g sunflower or coconut oil
3 medium ripe bananas (plus one extra to put on top, optional)
100 g natural Natural yoghurt
50 g pecans or walnuts (chopped)
Preheat the oven to 180C. Brush a 22cm loaf tin with oil and line with baking paper.
In a large bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients apart from chopped hazelnuts/pecans.
In a separate, medium bowl, mix together mashed bananas, sunflower oil, and yoghurt and add to the flour mixture. Fold the walnuts/pecans and pour the batter into a baking tin. Top up with banana split lengthwise (optional).
Bake for 50 minutes, until inserted skewer comes out clean. Cover the top with kitchen foil if it starts to look too brown. Cool for 10-15 minutes before removing from the tin.
