Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Refined sugar-free, Vegan option
5 large, ripe bananas (Let bananas ripen until black spots are everywhere on the skin= sweeter & easier to digest)
*Vegan egg option: 4tbsp chia seed meal or flaxseed meal whisked with 12tbsp water
1 cup almond meal
½ cup coconut flour or other GF flour of choice
¼ cup flaxseed meal
¼ whole flaxseeds
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
2tbsp Naked Paleo turmeric latte powder
*Alternatively you can add: 1tbsp turmeric powder, 2tsp vanilla powder, 1tsp nutmeg, a couple of twists of cracked black pepper. *Black pepper enhances the bioavailability of the active constituents of turmeric, enabling your body to utilise the benefits a lot easier :)
Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees celcius. Line a medium square or round cake tin with baking paper. Or make it into a loaf by lining a loaf tin with baking paper.
Add 4 peeled bananas and all eggs to a blender/mixer and blend until smooth. While machine is still running, add coconut oil and blend for a couple of seconds.
In a mixing bowl, add all dry ingredients and stir together until well combined. Add dry ingredients into blender and blend wet and dry ingredients until wet dough is formed.
Scrape dough from mixer into cake tin you have prepared and smooth down the top with a spatula.
Grab your last peeled banana and slice lengthways into quarters (as seen in picture). Arrange the 4 banana slices on the top of the loaf and press down gently to allow bananas to sink into dough.
Place baking tin into oven and bake for 30 mins. If you are using a loaf tin, you may need another 10 minutes to ensure the center is cooked through.
