BANANA , BLUEBERRY & COCONUT LOAF
1 1/2 cups flour (you could use plain flour, gluten free or buckwheat flour. If using almond, use only 1 cup of almond meal & 1/2 cup flour as almond meal will take on a lot of moisture)
1 cup desiccated coconut
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
Zest of a lemon
FOR THE TOPPING
2 tbsp rolled oats
In one bowl, mix the dry ingredients (flour, coconut and baking powder & baking soda). Add the lemon zest and blueberries to the dry ingredients.
In another bowl, mash the bananas and add the eggs. Whisk together thoroughly with a fork. Add the melted coconut oil and honey to the mixture and continue to mix well.
Add the wet to the dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly.
Pour into a lined loaf tin. Slice the banana longs ways into three parts and press them gently into the mixture. Sprinkle with rolled oats.
Bake at 180c for 35-40 minutes until it has coloured. Check to see if it is cooked with a knife or skewer
Cut a slice when it is still warm after coming out of the oven and serve with a bit of butter. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
