There’s nothing better then a delicious slice of banana bread for a treat on a cold afternoon – and so much the better if it’s sugar-free, high fibre, high in iron, calcium and gluten-free!
Tiger nut flour is great in baking because they are naturally sweet so you can cut out all or some of the sugar in most recipes. Tiger nut flour is also high in fibre, grain free, gluten free and low FODMAP making it a healthy alternative in so many ways. This recipe is deliciously rich and moist. It is also quick, healthy and super easy, and a real favourite in our house.
3 large very ripe bananas, plus 1 extra for decoration
200g Tiger Nuts Flour
3 large eggs
4 tbsp coconut oil or butter
1 ½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
A handful of chocolate chips or cacao nibs (optional)
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. In a food processor or blender, (or mix by hand if you prefer) add all ingredients and process Blend until smooth, then add baking powder and blitz through. Pour in a rectangle baking tin lined with baking paper. Thinly slice the extra banana and decorate on top of the batter. Drizzle with an extra spoon of honey.
Bake for about 20 minutes until lightly browned on top and a skewer inserted comes out clean.
Serve with grass-fed butter or coconut butter if you prefer. Really nice toasted as well!
