Today has been a great day. Im feeling stronger and happier after writing yesterdays post. I woke up with an ugre to bake something. For me this is a sign I’m feeling better. When I’m low I have no energy or urge to bake or cook. So the fact I’m feeling like baking is pretty darn wonderful.
My sweet friend Klara told me she had baked banana bread last time we met. Ever since that I’ve been craving it like crazy. I’ve tried it before but never baked it myself so that’s what I decieded to do.
This bread was really simple to make and the good thing is you can vary it a lot with different ingredients and make it more or less healthy, gluten free, with or without sugar etc…
This is my first recepie post but I’ve tried to make it as simple as possible to follow. If I can make this, you can too my friends.
3 ripe bananas (It’s important they’re ripe)
5 dl (2 cups) flour– I used oatflour that I made myself by mixing oats into a flour (ambitious I know). You can also use weatflour or whatever the heck you want.
2 tablespoons coconut oil (Or butter if you’re in that mood).
1,5 dl (aproximately half a cup) of milk -You can use any type of milk, I used oatmilk.
1 tablespoon sweetner of your choice -I used agave syrup but you can use sugar, honey, maple syrup etc. My bread was not supersweet, if you prefer it sweeter, use more sweetner (duh..)
3 tablespoons pshyllum husk– Fun fact: this is called Loppefrøskaler in Danish, what a stupid language…
3 tablespoons chia seeds
1 teaspoon baking powder or baking soda (I’ve never understood the difference to be honest)
A pinch of salt (bae)
Ps. You can add nuts, dried fruits, spices etc. to make your bread extra tasty. I threw some cinnamon, cardamon and almonds in the mix.
THIS IS HOW WE DO IT…
Start by turning the oven to 175 degrees celsius (35o degrees F) -I know you would have forgoten this if I didnt tell you before the recepie. You’re welcome.
Mash the bananas and mix them with the eggs in a bowl.
Melt the coconut oil and add the sweetner of your choice to the melted oil and blend it. Pour the mix into the mashed bananas and eggs and stir it around.
Mix all the dry ingredients in a different bowl, flour, pshyllum husk, chia seeds, baking powder and salt. Make sure it’s well blended so you don’t get lumps of baking powder in your bread.
Pour the dry mix and milk into the bananamix and blend it together.
Add spices, nust fruit if you want to and pour the mixture in a baking pan. You can also pour it in muffinshapes if you prefer.
Put it in the middle of the oven and let it bake for aproximately 25 minutes -I forgot to keep track of the time to be honest but another recepie said 25 minutes. If you’re making muffins they might be done faster so watch them like a toddler in a chinashop. You should be able to put a fork in the bread without it getting too sticky.
Take your bananacreation out of the oven and let it cool off a little before stuffing your pretty face with this yummyness! It goes lovely with penutbutter, just sayin’.
