Ingredients

 

400 g (14  oz) ripe banana
5 free range / organic eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
60 ml  coconut oil or cold pressed olive oil
half teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
70 g  coconut flour
20 g  chia seed or ground flaxseed

50 g crushed walnuts

 

Method

 

Preheat your oven to 150 C. (fan forced) 170 C ( no fan)
Combine banana, oil, cinnamon, vanilla, eggs and baking powder into a blender or food processor and blend until creamy and combined  - alternatively you can do this by hand in a large bowl.
Add the coconut flour and chia seeds and mix through.
Rest for 10 minutes to allow the chia and coconut flour to expand.
Lightly oil one loaf tin and then line with baking paper.
Spoon batter into the tin – at this stage you can decorate the bread with flaked coconut of sliced banana before baking.
Bake for  50 – 55  minutes ( a skewer inserted into the centre should come out dry).
Cover the top with foil if over-browning.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool before turning out the loaf.
Makes 1 loaf serves 12.
keeps in the fridge covered for up to 1 week. (freezes well too)
