Banana Coconut Almond Bread - Grain Free

Banana, Coconut & Almond Bread – Inspired from the 'Anja's Food For thought' site 


3/4 cup almond meal
1/4 cup coconut flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

3 eggs, at room temperature
2 tablespoons coconut oil, liquefied
2 ripe bananas, mashed 
2 tablespoons honey

45g chopped dates
60g chopped walnuts

Handful desiccated coconut


1. Preheat oven to 175C. Line a regular 1lb loaf tin with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, sift together almond meal, coconut flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In another bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Whisk in mashed banana, date syrup/honey and coconut oil. 
Combine wet and dry ingredients and stir until  no longer lumpy. Stir in chopped dates and walnuts. 

3. Transfer batter to prepared loaf tin. Sprinkle desiccated coconut. Bake for 40 minutes, or until cake tester comes out clean. Let cool on wire rack.

The Verdict
“It tastes lovely Bee, although I imagined it to taste more banana-y”

“Very good recipe though, nice taste and quite a nice texture.”

Overall I believe this to be a rather acceptable 'Grain-free' recipe which could be favoured by all people and not catered specifically for a selected niche. =]
