The best ever BANANA BREAD

Brought to you by Danielle Elliott
from Tummy Rescue


2 cups of GF plain flour (or often use 1 ½  cups plain flour & ½ cup lentil or buckwheat flour)

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp bicarb

1/4 tsp salt

4-5 very ripe bananas

1/4 cup grapeseed oil

2 eggs

2 tbsp milk

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup raw sugar or bit less than 1/2 cup of maple syrup

1/2 cup choc chips (I use dairy free)


Preheat oven to 175 degrees.

In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients and mix till combined uniformly.

In a medium bowl mash, the banana really well with a fork. Add all other wet ingredients and mix together well.

Add wet ingredients to the large bowl, mix together till combined, then stir through choc chips.

Pour into the tray/bread tin and bake for 45-55 mins. I like it a bit lighter in colour as I find it stays moist that way.

I bake mine in a lined slice tin, so I can cut into 16 squares that fit into lunch box easily .
