We've had hundreds of published 5-star reviews and thousands of happy customers. Most of the reviews give me the warm & fuzzies, but this one made me squirm.

Banana Bread - Vegan & Refined Sugar-Free

I LOOOOVE banana bread, and the talented @jay.dreamin has created another winner.  Wow, it looks Delish!  I also love that she used the Beach Harvest Sweet Chilli Coconut Chips - what the?!!?  I'd never think of pairing that flavour with bananas, but I think she has a winner.  Thanks @jay.dreamin!

Ingredients

4 Mashed (very ripe) bananas

2 Tablespoons Chia Seeds w 6 Tablespoons of water (to create "egg" )

1 Teaspoon of Baking Soda

1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1/3 Cup coconut Flour

1 Cup Oat Flour

1 Cup Plant Milk (I used Pure Harvest Organic Soy Milk)

1 Tablespoon of Cinnamon

1 Packet Sweet Chilli Coconut Chips.

1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar (with "the mother") 

Handful of Walnuts- chopped .

(Optional - I didn't add any of these as I found them Sweet Enough without)

5 Medjool Dates (diced or blended with milk) or Tablespoon of Maple Syrup or 1/4 Cup coconut sugar.

Method

Preheat Oven to 200C

Combine Chia seeds and water and allow to sit.

Mash bananas and add chia seeds, Apple Cider Vinegar and Milk of choice to a bowl and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes.

Add all remaining ingredients and mix.

You can either add walnuts & coconut chips in the mix, or sprinkle on top for a golden crunch. 

Cook on 180C for 35-40 minutes until brown on top
