Yum, yum, yum, "healthy" banana bread

Banana loaf.JPG

For health reasons I went totally sugar free for a few months and weaned myself off that glorious dark chocolate that saw me through the first few months of Elijah's life. I admit I still succumbed to bubbles which can be very good for the soul, but I even cut out fruit to give my body a fighting chance!!

It is a joy incorporating fruit back into my life again and this cake is super yummy and almost guilt free (until you weigh out the nut butter and pay for the coconut flour!!).  Enjoy! xx


Oven at 350◦F and wipe loaf tin with a little coconut oil.


4 extremely ripe bananas

4 eggs

½ cup nut butter (your choice)

4 tablespoons coconut oil

½ cup coconut flour (Hansa)

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional) – I don’t use because I am not a fan of cinnamon but I don’t think it needs it!

Pinch salt

What to do

Put all ingredients into food processor and whizz until batter like consistency.   Pour into prepared loaf tin and bake for approx. 30-40 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

Once cooked remove from oven and leave for 30 minutes before turning out.   Allow to cool completely before serving.
