banana bread

Gluten free dairy free banana bread

Adapted from the "Simple Treats" cookbook by Ellen Abraham

2-3 ripe bananas for 1 cup of mashed bananas

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup maple syrup

1 cup almond milk

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

2 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup coconut flakes (this is my substitute for a dry sweetener like coconut palm sugar. If you don't like coconut flakes, maybe add 1/4 more oat flour or whole oats)

3/4 cup chopped walnuts

1 3/4 cups oat flour (I grind whole rolled oats in my Vitamix)

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 F. Oil a loaf pan with coconut oil. Combine wet ingredients separately from dry ingredients. Add wet to dry. Blend well. Pour into pan and bake 40 mins, check it (poke with a knife...it's done when the knife comes out clean) and probably it will need another 20 or more minutes depending on how wet it still is. This last time I just turned the oven off after 40 minutes and left it in there overnight and had it for breakfast. I'm a lazy baker.
