You know how most people like to spend their Sunday prepping for the week ahead by stocking the freezer with meals that are ready to go. Well I am one of those people, only I like to stalk my freezer with ready to go treats. Brownies, cookies, donuts, granola, yes granola is a treat, and no I’m not one of those hippie tree hugging health nuts. I’m a sarcastic super fun funny health nut.
So today the plan is to make some ready to go sweets because every night no matter how full I am after dinner I still manage to find some room to eat a treat. I tend to be a creature of habit so the same 3 or 4 options will be on the roster today, but then I thought what if I did a remake, what if I took something that I really loved and assumed that I had mastered and tried to make it better? I know sounds crazy right, how can it possibly get better???
I call this the remake of something good.
Banana bread 2.0
3 bananas mashed
1 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup tapioca starch
1/4 coconut sugar
1/4 cup coconut oil + a little extra to grease your pan of choice
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup raisins
Preheat your oven to 350 and grease your baking pan with a little coconut oil.
In a large bowl combine all of your dry ingredients then set aside.
In another bowl beat eggs, oil, sugar and bananas.
Combine your wet ingredients into your dry then give it another beating for a minute or two just to combine. Fold in your walnuts and raisins and then into the pan it goes and then into the oven.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted into the middle of the bread comes out clean. I like to sprinkle my bread with a little more coconut sugar and cinnamon before I bake it, I find it gives it a sweet crust on the top.
Allow the bread to cool completely before you cut into it then smother with ghee and enjoy.
