Feel like I’m a bit late to the party on this one, seems baking banana bread is a must right now, so here’s my family favourite. Moist, sweet and oh so moreish, I’d be very impressed if you could resist eating it all in one sitting, it most definitely doesn’t last more than a couple of days in this house.

Ingredients

Loaf

  • 430g (approximately 4) ripe, peeled bananas
  • 150g ground almonds
  • 75g dark chocolate (check if vegan friendly)
  • 125g spelt or buckwheat flour
  • 190ml maple syrup

Icing

  • 430g (approximately 4) ripe, peeled bananas
  • 150g ground almonds
  • 75g dark chocolate (check if vegan friendly)
  • 125g spelt or buckwheat flour
  • 190ml maple syrup
  • 125g icing sugar
  • 30ml maple syrup
  • 1–2 tbsp milk (use plant-based milk to make recipe vegan friendly)

Toppings

  • 430g (approximately 4) ripe, peeled bananas
  • 150g ground almonds
  • 75g dark chocolate (check if vegan friendly)
  • 125g spelt or buckwheat flour
  • 190ml maple syrup
  • 125g icing sugar
  • 30ml maple syrup
  • 1–2 tbsp milk (use plant-based milk to make recipe vegan friendly)
  • Chopped walnuts
  • Dark chocolate chips (check if vegan friendly)
  • Banana chips

Method

  • STEP 1
    Preheat the oven to 190oC (fan 170oC). Line a 23 × 13 × 7cm loaf tin with baking parchment.
  • STEP 2
    Put the bananas into a mixing bowl and mash with a fork until smooth and creamy – the riper they are the easier this will be.
  • STEP 3
    Break chocolate up into small pieces.
  • STEP 4
    Next stir in the dry ingredients, mixing them well with the bananas. Then add the wet ingredients and stir until a smooth batter forms.
  • STEP 5
    Spoon the mixture into the lined loaf tin.
  • STEP 6
    Bake the loaf in the oven for 45–50 minutes or until a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean; if it doesn’t leave the loaf in the oven a little longer.
  • STEP 7
    Once ready, leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes to firm up, before transferring to a wire rack to cool to room temperature.
  • STEP 8
    Mix together ingredients for icing until smooth and drizzle over loaf, sprinkle with chopped walnuts, dark chocolate chips and banana chips (optional).
  • STEP 9
    Once completely cool, store in an airtight container and consume within 3-5 days.
