Wholegrain Banana Bread

Wholegrain Banana Bread (Low Fat + Vegan).

2 cups oat flour
1 cup spelt flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 very ripe bananas
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons liquid sweetener (I used maple syrup)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons coconut oil

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 175ºC + grease a loaf pan. Combine the first six ingredients in a mixing bowl. I make oat flour with oats in the Vitamix on high for 30 seconds.
  2. Add the ACV to the milk + set aside. Mash your bananas to form a smooth puree or just throw in the blender.
  3. Now add the remaining ingredients to the smooth bananas including the coconut milk + mix thoroughly. Add this to the dry mix to form a smooth batter.
  4. Transfer to the loaf pan, top with brown sugar (optional but delicious) + bake for 50 minutes or until an inserted skewer comes out clean. Cool a little before devouring.

  1. Hiya, I tried this but for some reason didn’t work out, the bread didn’t really rise instead I got a delicious gooey fudge like cake with a crunchy crust that went perfectly with a dollop of Greek yogurt and a coffee 🙂 I didn’t have any spelt flour so used rice flour instead..could this be the reason? Maybe I had the oven too hot

    • Hi Anna, thanks for stopping by – I would imagine the temperature being too high would affect how the inside cooked. Did you follow the method to be 175 Celsius / 347 Fahrenheit temperature?
      Regarding flour, spelt although very low in gluten, does still contain it which means that this has an effect on the baking of breads as it provides that slight stickiness which encourages the dough to rise also. The rice flour could therefore have contributed to the outcome.
      Hope this helps?
