Ingredients

1-1/4 cups Namaste Perfect Flour Blend
1/2 cup almond meal
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. sea salt
2 tbsp. finely ground matcha tea powder
2 eggs
1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup)
1/2 cup coconut milk (or almond milk)
1/3 cup ghee, coconut oil, or avocado oil, melted
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
1 tsp. vanilla
1-1/4 cup mashed, super ripe bananas (about 4) plus more sliced bananas to top the loaf, if desired

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and line a loaf pan with parchment paper or grease liberally with ghee or coconut oil.
  2. Start by peeling and mashing the bananas in a large mixing bowl.
  3. To the bananas, add the eggs, coconut milk, ghee, apple cider vinegar and vanilla. Stir until no large clumps remain.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients, the gluten free flour blend, almond flour, baking powder and soda, sea salt and the matcha powder.
  5. Slowly stir the dry ingredients into the wet mixture and combine until a smooth batter forms.
  6. At this point you can pour the mixture into the pan and top with extra slices of banana, if desired, or leave the top plain.
  7. Bake for 55-60 minutes, taking care not to open the oven during the cook time.
  8. Let cool at least 30 minutes in the pan and then turn out onto a baking sheet. Let cool before cutting and cut into 10 pieces. Enjoy!
