Banana Bread v2

I have already a banana bread recipe that I like quite a lot but decided to try a new one. video. recipe. I adapted it to my kitchen because sometimes I think some vegan recipes use ingredients that too difficult and expensive to find… I didnt do it vegan, just used normal low-fat cow milk.


3 ripe bananas, mashed
125ml coconut oil, melted (pretty sure you can use any non-flavour oil)
125ml milk
6 tbs dried coconut
6 tbs dried cranberries
6 tbs almond flakes
Half handful of pumpkin and sunflower seeds
240g white flour
1 tsp baking powder
125g coconut sugar (or any brown sugar)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 pinch of fresh grated nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cardamon
40g dark chocolate: chopped as chips

1 Banana, sliced length-ways
4 tbs maple syrup


  • Pre heat your at 180C and line a loaf tin with greaseproof paper.
  • Mix your mashed banana with milk, cranberries, seeds, coconut and melted coconut oil.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, coconut sugar, spices and chocolate chips.
  • Mix the wet and dry ingredients together until well incorporated. Do not over mix.
  • Pour the batter into the tin. Then lay the sliced banana on top and drizzle over a little maple.
  • Bake for 45 minutes aprox.
  • Check it after 35 minutes, if you can see it getting too caramelised on top, cover it over with foil and leave to cook for the remaining time.
  • Once golden on top leave it to cool down.

Not bad result! I am not sure the coconut oil or the coconut sugar gives any flavour although it smelled a bit of coconut while baking. Go soft with the cardamon, it can overpower the rest of flavours!
