Eating healthy has almost become a good habit of mine, bar the occasional sweet treat or the odd cocktail. What if I could merge the two? A healthy(ish) sweet treat!  You love banana just as much I do right? I’ve got just the thing.

Due to the high sugar and fat content, banana bread is not traditionally known as a healthy snack. Like with a lot of  things you can make anything healthy buy either reducing or swapping all the fat inducing ingredients.

Ingredients
285g/10oz gluten free plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
110g/4oz soya butter alternative
110g/4oz brown sugar
2 medium sized eggs
5 ripe bananas, mashed
85ml/3floz almond milk
3 tbsp maple syrup
3 tbsp raw cacao powder
3 tbsp crushed almonds
3 tbsp chia seeds

Instructions

  1. First things first, preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Mix together the sugar and butter, and add in the maple syrup when the two are mixed.
  3. Sieve all the dry ingredients into a separate bowl and mix together thoroughly.
  4. Crack both eggs into a separate bowl and lightly whisk with the almond milk; add into the sugar/butter mix.
  5. Mash the bananas in a bowl using a fork and add into the wet mix. Add all the remaining ingredients (except the dry flour mix) and bring together using an electric whisk.
  6. Steadily add the dry flour mix into the wet mix a little bit at a time, and keep whisking together.
  7. Grease a bread tin with a tiny bit of butter, then pour the mixture in until there’s about a inch of space to the top.
  8. Place the tin into the oven for an hour, and check it every twenty minutes or so.
  9. When the banana bread is golden brown, risen and cooked thoroughly (the top may crack – using a fork pierce the break, and check the fork to ensure there is no mixture on it. IT’S DONE!!!
