Energy  Boosting Vegan Banana Bread

Energy Boosting Vegan Banana Bread

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 70-90 minutes | Serves: 12

This recipe is a perfect way to use up bananas that may have gone a little past their best before, but still have all their lovely nutrients and extra sweetness. It makes a delicious breakfast topped with Cacao & Hazelnut Crunchy Spread, vegan yoghurt and berries – a perfect start to the day.

Ingredients

  • 3 medium bananas (roughly 350g flesh)
  • 60g Naturya coconut oil, melted
  • 180g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 120g Naturya coconut sugar
  • 30g Naturya Superfood Energy Blend
  • 50g walnuts, chopped
  • 125g dairy-free yoghurt

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 190°C, 170°C fan, gas mark 5. 
  • Base line a 1 kg (2lb) loaf tin.
  • Peel the bananas, and slice in half lengthways. Reserve one half and lightly mash the remaining banana flesh with a fork, leaving a few large chunks – these will break down more when you mix into the cake batter.
  • Sift the flour and bicarbonate together in a large bowl.  Stir in the coconut sugar, Functional Energy Blend and chopped walnuts.  Make a well in the centre.
  • Pour the coconut oil, yoghurt and mashed banana into the well of the dry ingredients then stir to mix the ingredients to a thick cake batter.
  • Spoon into the prepared tin. Lay the remaining slice of banana on top and bake for 50-60 minutes, until a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the tin and cooling completely on a cooling rack.
