INGREDIENTS YOU NEED
- Ripe bananas
- Coconut oil
- Vanilla extract
- Cinnamon powder
- Gluten free baking powder
- Almond flour or almond meal
- I recommend using a silicon loaf pan. You will save yourself a bit of time by not having to grease the pan and then line it with baking paper. They are ideal if you are short on time. I use the Wiltshire which you can buy from your major supermarkets.
- It takes approximately 60 minutes to bake. But always check with a skewer to make sure the bread has cooked through.
Add 1/4 cup of pure maple syrup to the recipe at stage 2 with the other wet ingredients. It will not be low-carb then.
Make sure the eggs have been kept at room temperature before using and are not cold. It will help the bread to rise better when cooking.
