Banana and chocolate loaf


Sometimes only cake will do! There is nothing like an afternoon cuppa with a slice of something delicious. If you find yourself scrounging for that something sweet try this delicious chocolate loaf. It also makes a great dinner party dessert served warm with fresh cream and berries. The protein from the eggs and almond flour balance out the banana and gives you a low sugar load treat. You should get about 12 slices from the loaf.

Prep Time 15 mins Cook time 30 minutes

3 eggs

180g coconut oil

3 ripe bananas – choose small to medium size

200g ground almonds

2 tbsp. cacao powder

1 tsp. bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180°c/350°F/Gas Mark 4.

Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan and set aside to cool slightly.

Separate the eggs and beat the egg whites until thick and fluffy.

In another bowl mash the banana and mix with the remaining ingredients including the egg yolks and coconut oil.

Gently fold the banana mix into the egg whites until just combined.

Pour into a loaf tin lined with baking parchment and cook for 30 minutes.

Leave to cool and serve by itself or with plain Greek Yoghurt.
