Jurassic Banana Bread Loves
by COLETTE PIENAAR
Ok so these were supposed to be a bit of cheeky fun for a fun day at The Pavilion Club and they won a first prize – lol – a few of you were there and got to taste them and asked for the recipe. Well here it is 🙂
You will need:
1 cup flour (I used Kamut bread flour – low gluten)
1/2 cup of raw oats
1/2 cup of protein powder (I used Vanilla Protein Powder)
125 g vegetable margarine
2 eggs (can use an egg substitute if preferred – my favourites are Flax or Chia seeds – 1 tbsp ground Flax or Chia seeds +3 tbsp Water =1 egg. Grind the seeds in a coffee grinder, and mix with water. Allow to rest till it becomes gelatinous, then use)
4 ripe bananas
1 cup sugar ( I used coconut sugar)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 tsp ground chilli – if you like a bit of heat
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees.
Cream margarine and sugar together, add mashed banana and mix well. Add dry ingredients, alternating with egg. Dissolve bicarb into 1/4 cup of warm water and add to the mixture, mix well.
Pour mixture into floured small or large loaf tins – makes one large loaf or 8-10 small loaves.
Bake at 180 degrees for 40-60 minutes.
If you are using small loaf tins they will take around 20 minutes to bake, just keep an eye on them.
Slice and enjoy!
