You can add soo many different things to make it individual= berries, coconut, oats, yogurt, cinnamon, choc chip, lime, nuts, adult friendly alcohol infusions (rum works well), sour cream, carrot, mango, ginger, coffee, peanut butter.... you get the picture, the list goes on-and-on!!!
Here is a basic recipe that I like to use as a base, the added bonus is that this one is SUGAR FREE! So it doesn't hit the hips as hard as many other might.
I hope you like it...
1/2 cup vegan spread
1 cup stevia
2 cups self-raising wheat free/ gluten free flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp lemon juice
3 overripe bananas, mashed
- Preheat oven to 180°C. Brush a loaf tray with melted spread. Line with baking paper. Use a whisk to beat the spread, stevia, vanilla, lemon juice, and almond milk in a small bowl until pale and creamy. In a separate large bowl combine the flour, salt and baking powder. Make a well in the dry mix and slowly stir in half the ‘wet mix’. Using a wooden spoon beat the mix and slowly add the remainder of the ‘wet mix’. Add the mashed banana's and eggs gradually, beating well after each addition.
- Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf tray. Shake the pan to settle the mixture. Bake in oven for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 10 minutes to cool slightly, before transferring the loaf to a wire rack to cool completely.
