Hi All! I hope you are all having an incredible week and enjoying hump day! With easter coming up, I know I’m going to be eating chocolate and eating some bad foods, so I always try to ensure that the weeks leading up to Easter I am as healthy as possible, this however doesn’t stop me from having a sweet tooth! So this past weekend, I decided to gather up some healthy, nutritious ingredients and make a sweet banana and blueberry bread. The bread is super tasty warm or cold or just to take as a small snack to cure your sweet tooth!
- 4 Bananas ( ripe cooking banana’s as they need to be mashed)
- 3 Eggs
- 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Essence
- 3 Tablespoons of Honey
- 1/4 Cup of Melted Coconut Oil (60ml)
- 150g bag of Almond meal
- 150g of crushed Almonds
- 1 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
- 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
- 1 Punnet of Blueberries (100g)
STEP ONE: Cut up and mash your 4 Bananas. I simply used a fork to do this. They should look like this when you’re done.
STEP TWO: Add wet ingredients; eggs, coconut oil, honey and vanilla to your Bananas. (you may need to do this in a bigger bowl) and mix well. After mixing, your ingredients should look like this:
STEP 3: In a seperate bowl, mix your dry ingredients – This is your almond meal, crushed almonds, cinnamon and baking soda – Mix well, as shown below:
STEP FOUR: add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients and mix through thoroughly. Your ingredients should now look something like this:
STEP FIVE: Fold the blue berries into your mix slowly.
STEP SIX: Line your bread tin with baking paper, then poor your mixture into the tin.
STEP SEVEN: The fun part! Baking your bread! Bake at around 180 for 45 minutes to an hour. As it can vary, keep checking your bread and place a knife in – if the knife comes out clean, your bread is cooked. If it comes out wet with ingredients still on it, it needs more time.
STEP EIGHT: Cut, serve and EAT!
This bread is not only healthy, guilt free and delicious but as you can see its very simple to make, ingredients are not expensive and its quick and easy! Trust me guys, if i can make it, I know all of you can too! I hope you guys enjoy this recipe just as much as I do, Happy baking guys!
Until next time,
