Healthy, refined sugar free, grain free banana bread with delicious buttery and health promoting macadamias. Recipe by nutritionist and naturopath Casey-Lee Lyons from Live Love Nourish.
- 3 free range eggs large
- 1 1/2 cups banana mashed, overripe
- 1 tbsp macadamia nut oil
- 1-2 tbsp rice malt syrup or honey
- 1 1/2 cup macadamias roughly chopped
- 1 cup almond meal
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Pre-heat your fan-forced oven to 175°C.
In a mixing bowl whisk eggs with mashed banana, macadamia oil and rice malt syrup. In a blender or food processor pulse 1 cup macadamia nuts to a ground nut meal consistency (some texture is ok).
Add ground macadamias, almond meal, baking powder and cinnamon to wet mixture and combine. Stir through remaining macadamia nuts. Pour into a lined loaf tin and bake in oven for 40-45 minutes or until cooked through and lightly golden.
Before baking top with extra crushed macadamia nuts or sliced banana.
Serving SuggestionServe a slice warmed, toasted or topped with yoghurt or macadamia nut butter and a drizzle of honey.
