Gluten-Free Banana Bread

Delicious and nutritious Gluten-Free Banana Bread (also dairy, sugar and egg free)

Is banana bread really a bread, or is it a cake? Well, despite its name, it’s basically a cake.

Our recipe contains gluten-free flour, flaxseed instead of eggs, hazelnuts, cinnamon, our lemongrass tea instead of milk and more.

The result is a moist, lightly sweetened, nutritious morning meal or perfect afternoon snack with high-health benefits.

What’s not to love about it? It’s delicious on its own. Although, if you want to turn it into a soul-soothing dessert, you can top your slice with a spoonful of Greek or Coconut yogurt for a protein boost. Or top it with a drizzle of cream honey. We went slightly overboard with our Cream honey with Lemongrass for the full experience.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 3 medium-ripe bananas, mashed + 1 extra for garnish
  • 3 tablespoons raw honey, we used our Cream honey with lemongrass
  • 2 Tea Bags of CC Tea or 2 tsp CC Tea in leaves
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cups almond meal
  • 2 1/2 cups gluten-free flour
  • Optionally: 3/4 cup almonds / hazelnuts, finely chopped

Method:

1. In a small bowl, stir together the flaxseed meal with 2 tablespoons of water. Allow the mixture to sit for 2 min to thicken slightly.

2. Make a cup (100ml) of CC Tea. Pour hot water over Tea Bags or tea leaves and let it steep for 5 min. Then strain the tea.

3. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Lightly grease a loaf pan with coconut oil and set aside or use baking paper or silicone mold instead.

4. In a large bowl, whisk together the bananas, oil, honey, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and flaxseed meal-water mixture. Add the almond meal and flour. Slowly add in CC Tea until you get the right texture for the biscuit and stir until combined. Fold in the almonds and hazelnuts (optionally).

5. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.

6. For garnish slice a banana in half lengthways and slightly press into the batter.

7. Place in the oven for 45min – 1h, or until the bread feels firm and the top has turned golden brown and is slightly cracked. If the bread starts to brown too quickly, cover with foil and continue baking. Check that it’s cooked by sticking a toothpick inside and see if it comes out clean.

8. When it’s done, let it rest in the tin for 10 min before removing. Then place it on a cooling rack for a further 10 min before slicing.

Enjoy the bread warm when it’s the best, but it’s no less delicious when completely chilled.

Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days. This bread also freezes well. Wrap the loaf in foil and a freezer-safe plastic bag and store in the freezer for up to 2 months.

Bon Appetit!
