Image   Today we wanted to use up a packet of almond meal left over from Jess making her own almond milk and thought we would include it in a banana bread and see what the result was. Here is the recipe we used:

Ingredients –

1 cup rice flour

1 cup almond meal (run it briefly through the blender to break up hard lumps)

1 cup mashed bananas

1/2 cup coconut oil – can use 125g butter if you don’t mind the dairy

2 Tbsp honey or agave syrup (we don’t like it too sweet)

2 Tbsp water with 1 tspn chia seeds – allow to stand for 15 minutes

3 Tbsp almond milk

2 eggs

2 level tspn Baking powder

1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

Zest of 1 lemon – wash lemon first if it is waxed

Directions-

  • Heat up oven to 180C
  • Use a brush to coat the inside of a loaf pan with coconut oil and then dust it with rice flour
  • Place all ingredients into a bowl
  • Mix together with a spatula
  • Place in prepared loaf tin
  • Cook at 180C for 40 – 45 minutes, until golden brown

The smell of the loaf coming out the oven brought everyone to the kitchen, hovering, making tea and generally getting ready to taste. It was delicious and quite substantial. The almond meal had given it a lovely nutty flavour and the chia seeds, a slight crunch. Thought I would love to share it with you all.  Happy baking!
