Vegan Banana Bread

Vegan, Dairy-free, Wheat-free, Gluten-free, Egg-free, Yeast-free
Moist and crumbly smooth Banana/Almond Bread with a decoration of flaked almonds....yummy

I have never been a fan of bananas, until now! 
Ever since i made my banana flapjacks, i try to sneak a banana once every few days!
I have never tried making a banana bread before, and I'm so glad i made this recipe.
This banana bread uses less than 10 ingredients, and it is super easy to make! 
It is very light and crumbly & ever so moorish as i used half normal gluten-free flour and half almond flour, giving it that nutty taste, while still being quite spicy from the cinnamon and chewy from the banana!
For added decoration and protein, i sprinkled over some flaked almonds.


Preparation time- 5 minutes
Cooking time- 45-50 minutes
Serves- 8-10 hungry tummies

Ingredients-
-3 Bananas
-140grams plain flour (I used Doves farm gluten free)
-85grams of almond flour
-2/3 Teaspoons of cinnamon
-50 grams of brown sugar
-20 grams of olive oil
-50 grams of maple syrup
-3 Teaspoons of baking powder
-Flaked almonds (optional)

Lets get Baking.....
Pre-heat your Oven to 180 Degrees.

Step 1- Peel and chop up the bananas and pop them into a large mixing bowl. Mash the bananas until smooth then add in the oil, sugar and maple syrup.
Step 2- Pour in the flours, baking powder and cinnamon and combine well. The mix should be light and fluffy.
Step 3- Line a 2lb loaf tin with grease Proof Paper. I stuck it down using dairy-free margarine.
Step 4- Spoon the bread mix into a loaf tin. Decorate with flaked almonds (this is optional, i wanted to add the almonds for a little extra protein and cruch)

Step 5- Pop the tin in the pre-heated oven and bake for 20 minutes. 

Step 6- After 20 minutes, check the banana bread by sticking a sharp knife or skewer into it, it should come out somewhat clear. 
Place the tin back into the oven for around another 30 more minutes. (Cover with foil to prevent the bread from burning)
Step 7- Take the banana bread out of the oven, tip out of the tin and place onto a cooling rack or Serving Dish!

Slice up and serve warm with some dairy-free ice-cream or yogurt or wait until the bread is cool and you can enjoy it with a nice cup of tea/coffee as a afternoon tea treat!
When the bread is hot, it is moist and crumbly, just how i like warm bread! 
This recipe is super easy, and its a must make for any banana & cinnamon lover!
