So there is someone in this household that always asks for Bananas..... and it then drives me Nuts (or Bananas) that this same person won't eat them. But I love baking so the best option is making Banana Bread.
I went to find a basic cake recipe and then modified it the way I like it and also trying to make it a bit healthier. So here it goes:
You will need:
4 ripe bananas,
2 table spoons raw Cocoa Nibs (DivineOrganics.com)
2 tablespoons Easy Cook Oats
2 tablespoons chopped nuts (I used Walnuts)
2 tablespoons slivered Almonds (extra for the top)
115 gram /1 stick melted Butter
150 gram Brown Sugar (white will work too)
2 large eggs
200 grams Flour (substitute from sweet rice flower, from KodaFarms.com)
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
PreHeat the oven to 350 FH / 180 Celsius
Butter a Loaf Pan 8.5 by 4.25 (or similar)
In a bowl mash the ripe bananas (I just used the mixer),
add the sugar and the eggs and beat until nicely incorporated
add the melted Butter and the dry ingredients
(I do this a little at the time)
Mix until all is well combined, make sure you don't beat it to death,
that will make the bread all gummy.
Fill the batter in the prepared LoafPan and sprinkle some Almonds on top,
then bake for about 60 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and let cool. Or eat a warm piece!
Super yummy any time of the day!
