Plant-Based Banana Bread
plant-based banana bread
1/4 cup melted coconut oil + a little extra for greasing
2 cups rolled oats
4 ripe bananas
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 tsp baking powder
Good pinch of sea salt
1 cup walnuts
1/4 cup 70% dairy-free dark chocolate
Preheat the oven to 350°F and get all your ingredients together.
Grease a non-stick loaf tin with coconut oil.
In a food processor, blitz oats into a course flour. Set the flour aside in another bowl.
Add the bananas, coconut oil, almond milk and brown sugar in the food processor and blitz until fully combined.
Add in the oat flour, baking powder and a good pinch of salt. Combine.
Add in the walnuts, blitz a few times to break up the nuts into the mixture.
Pour half the batter into the tin, add the chocolate pieces along the batter, then pour the rest on top. Sprinkle the top with a few extra pieces of chocolate and brown sugar if you’d like!
Bake for 1 hour (make sure you check the skewer comes out clean, all ovens are different). Leave to cool on a rack for at least 30 minutes. This will be the hardest part, but very important to ensure it doesn’t crumble!
Enjoy the banana bread with a drizzle of runny honey, a cup of tea and good company! xx
