Choc Peanut Banana Bread
This week while surfing Instagram in search of some foodspiration for Miss 4’s birthday party I stumbled across the most decadent looking peanut butter and chocolate banana bread I had ever seen, beautifully created by @neuroticmommy. Instantly I knew not only did I have to make that for my family, but also the impending group of party goers would be pleased! I have slightly tweaked from the original and made it gluten free, grain free, dairy free.
3/4 cup green banana flour – Natural Evolution Ultimate Gluten Free Baking Flour
1 1/2 teaspoons of bicarb soda
1/3 cup peanut butter (I used crunchy because that was in my pantry – any would be fine :))
1/2 cup cacao
1/2 cup coconut oil
3/4 cup coconut sugar
3 ripe bananas
pinch of salt
teaspoon of vanilla
1 extra banana for decorating top
1/4 cup peanut butter for decorating
1/4 melted choc for decorating
- Prepare bread tin either by lining or lightly grease/dust.
- Put all ingredients into TM or food processor mix until well combined. If using a hand mixer mash bananas first and then mix everything together.
- Pour into prepared tin. Slice banana and gently push into the batter.
4.Bake in oven for 40-45mins or until skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
- Melt peanut butter and chocolate in separate bowls, then use the back of a spoon to drizzle across the top.
