You can’t beat a lovely warm slice of banana bread!!

Its an autumn essential!! And with nice clean ingredients it’s perfect for breakfast, lunch or after dinner!

I thought it was time to master a quick easy recipe and this one definitely ticks the box! And  it’s always a bonus when it’s sans dairy and refined sugar! 


alexandra backshellYou will need…

♥ 4 medium ripe bananas

1 and 1/2 cups of all purpose flour

♥ 1 and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

♥ 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

♥ tablespoons of melted coconut oil

♥ 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon 

♥ 1/3 cup of coconut sugar, honey or sweetner of your choice. You can also add chopped walnuts.

Preheat oven to 350F/175 C .

Grease your loaf tin.

Sift the flour into a bowl, then add the flour and ALL the ingredients into your blender and blitz until it forms a  nice batter.

Pour the batter into your loaf tin and bake for 25-35 min, or until a chopstick or toothpick comes out clean.

Give it about 20min to cool off – then dig in!

Trust me, it won’t last long.

And don’t forget..

Bananas are high in antioxidants, providing protection from free radicals and chronic disease. They contain the natural mood enhancer tryptophan, protect against type ll diabetes, aid weight loss, strengthen the nervous system and help with the production of white blood cells – all due to high levels of vitamin B-6.


Have a wonderful  week wellness warriors!

Much love
