This one is SO simple. I whip it up when I feel like a nutritious, no added sweetener treat that I can happily down for breakfast. It was my sister’s request for breastfeeding fuel before we left New York this week and then we got home and I wanted some too. So I blended some up last night, literally in the time is took to make my tea. It’s an easy one but it tastes amazing and is low in sugar but high in goodness!
Confession the above picture is just plain banana bread because I made this on a whim and didn’t take a pretty picture before demolishing it with my tea… but they quick iPhone snap is below!
1 cup ground oats (oat flour)
1/2 cup whole oats
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup cocoa
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup raisins or chopped dates
1/4 cup nut milk
Pinch pink salt
Throw 3 of the bananas along with the eggs, cocoa, oat flour, vanilla, nut milk, salt and baking powder in a food processor and blend it till it’s all nicely smooth. Then just stir in the whole oats, slice the last banana and stir that in along with the pumpkin seeds and raisins. It’s that easy!
Pour it all into a lined loaf tin and bake at 350F for about 35-40 minutes or until it’s just springy to the touch and not ‘wobbly’!
Let it cool (or don’t, you know, do you really think I did?!) then spread it with nut butter, add banana slices, sprinkle on cacao nibs and enjoy!
