Gluten & Dairy Free Banana Bread



After making my Paleo Bread I decided to experiment with some other options. What I discovered is that it's super-easy to make a variety of breads or loaves using the same basic recipe. Here's a banana one that's delicious.


INGREDIENTS ​¼ c chopped sunflower seeds ¼ c chopped flax seeds ¼ c chopped hemp seeds ½ c chopped walnuts 1 ¾ c almond meal 1 tsp baking soda 2 tbs gluten free flour 1 tsp sea salt 3 eggs 3 ripe bananas 1 tbs honey/maple syrup/sugar free maple syrup (optional) 1 tbs apple cider vinegar 4 tbs coconut oil ​2 tsp vanilla paste For sprinkling prior to baking - 2-3 tbsp chopped walnuts. METHOD 1. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Grease and flour a loaf tin. 2. In a food processor, chop sunflower seeds, flax seeds and walnuts together then put aside in a separate container. 3. Place eggs, honey (if using), apple cider vinegar, bananas, coconut oil and salt into a food processor and mix well. 3. Add all dry ingredients to the food processor and mix well. This mixture is like a batter rather than a bread dough. 4. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf tin and smooth out evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle the extra walnuts on top. 5. Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until golden. Use skewer to test. Remove from oven and cool in the tin before turning out. Note: If you don't have these exact seeds, use what you have; likewise with the nuts. Substituting is fun and as long as you use the same quantities, it will turn out fine. Enjoy!
