So happy to share our banana bread recipe with you! Thank you to all whom have reached out to get the recipe and ask why ours is the yummiest around!
When friends ask for recipes, I always put in my disclaimer first: I am not good and patient enough to measure accurately and to follow on at your own risk...! That’s actually the secret ‘ingredient’ to this banana bread along with the love and warmth that goes into the missing bowl to make it stand out.
Who else has a huge bunch bananas sitting on the counter?
We consume a lot of bananas in our home, they pop up in most of our favourite meals and are also a great substitute for some ingredients. If you are trying to minimise refined sugars, or other food groups & allergens.
Touching on allergies and nutrition, this banana bread recipe is often adapted here at home to cater to our ever-changing dietary needs. I always have lots of ways to quickly add in or substitute items to cater for friends that have these needs too, really makes it friendly for everyone.
I especially enjoy making this for my partner to enjoy. A simple touch of love and warmth that I know he will genuinely get so much out of makes us both happy. I omitted telling him that by eating this sweet gesture of mine that he will benefit immensely, the addition of Original by bötanica wild helps with easing and treating a hangover, assists in oxygenation of the blood which in turn helps libido. It is providing dietary fibre, slow-release of natural energy, protein intake, amino acids, and ticks so many of the daily recommended nutrients recommended to us plus more. He would probably be bored listening to all of the health benefits so instead of telling him, I lovingly wrap a piece for him to take with him on his way. Everyone’s happy!
(we use organic where possible, you do what suits you)
Place into the blender:
1 cup rolled oats (or 1.5 cups flour your choice)
1 cup buckwheat
Blend until a flour forms, then add:
3 ripe bananas
1/3 cup coconut oil, liquid (or butter / oil of your choice)
2 eggs (could substitute for 2 tbs flax, or chia soaked)
1 tbs bötanica wild ‘original’
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp Himalayan salt
8 Medjool pitted dates, soaked in 1/3 cup hot water for few mins (sub out for ½ cup sugar)
Pulse blend until a soft batter is formed.
You can bake this as a beautiful bread loaf, or in individual muffin cases, which freeze particularly well too! 180 degrees Celsius for 45 minutes if in a loaf tin, and approximately 20 minutes if individual muffin cases, or until a skewer comes out clean.
