  • 4
    ripe bananas
  • 4
    free range eggs
  • 1/2
    peanut butter (or any nut butter of your choice)
  • 100
    organic butter (soft)
  • 1/2
    coconut flour
  • 1
  • 1
    baking powder
  • 1
    bicarbonate of soda
  • 1
    vanilla extract
  • 1/4
    stevia liquid
  • 1
  • a small pinch of salt
  • 1/2
    walnuts, roughly chopped



Preheat oven to 180°C.

Grease a loaf pan with butter and line base with baking parchment.

Blitz the eggs, bananas, vanilla extract, peanut butter and salt together till smooth in a blender.

In a mixing bowl, cream the butter, stevia and honey together, until light and fluffy.

Sift the dry ingredients, coconut flour, cinnamon, baking powder and bicarb into a separate bowl.

Add the banana mixture into the creamed butter and mix well.

Next, fold in the dry ingredients and nuts until well combined.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf tin and smooth surface with a spoon.

Bake for 30-40 minutes – halfway through cooking, cover the top with tinfoil to prevent the top from burning. Insert a knife into the centre of the loaf and it comes out clean, the bread is done. Allow to cool in the pan, and then remove and place onto a cooling rack before storing.
