adapted from a Jamie Oliver recipe - this really works well and tastes soooo good!
I love making this, the smell as the banana bread bakes is amazing and such a treat to eat a warm slice with an afternoon cup of tea along with the Sunday Times - luxury!
175g gluten free flour (- this time I used a mix of coconut flour and Dove's Farm gluten free plain flour but quinoa and chestnut flour work well too)
2 tsp gluten free baking powder
half tsp sea salt
half tsp ground cinnamon
125g unsalted butter, melted
75ml (5 Tbsp) pure maple syrup
2 large organic eggs
4 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pre heat oven to 170 deg C., grease and line a loaf tin (22 x 12cm)
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. In a large bowl beat the butter with the maple syrup, add one egg at a time and then add in the mashed bananas and vanilla extract. Fold in the flour, a third at a time.
Pour the mixture into the loaf tin and bake in the oven for approx 1 hour, until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Leave to cool for 10 mins before turning out onto a wire rack - delicious when still a little warm.
