Maple and Coconut Banana Bread


This is our favourite banana bread recipe, I sweeten this with a little maple syrup and make it with coconut oil. Its not overly sweet, so adjust to your own preference. The addition of coconut oil, keeps the bread from being dry. I warn you this is addictive! 


Dry Ingredients:
100g plain flour
125g plain wholemeal flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)

Wet Ingredients: 
100ml coconut oil, melted (slightly warm but not hot)
40ml maple syrup
125g natural yogurt
2 organic eggs
3 bananas, mashed to incorporate in mix
2 bananas, chopped and folded through mix

To decorate:
1-2 bananas sliced in half and pushes into the top of the bread to decorate


Preheat the oven to 160C fan. Combine all the ingredients in a big bowl. I combine the wet ingredients first and then sift in the dry ingredients. 

Grease a tin, with a little oil, or coconut oil. Fill with the mix and top with the bananas sliced in half, push them a little into the mix. Cook for 50 mins, or until cooked, you can test with a skewer. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack

Delicious served slightly warm from the oven.
