Banana bread

Today is a day of wind, grey sky and rain. Today is a day for a banana bread.

It is vegan and free of gluten and refined sugar and oils. It is really good and deliciously moisty, and fits perfectly next to my cup of tea on this chilly friday afteIMG_2678rnoon.

It is not too sweet, so if you prefer it sweeter you can add more dates, or a little sweetener of your choice, and maybe some more oats for the dough to stick together.

 

Banana Bread (Danish recipe below)

  • 4 ripe bananas
  • ½ cup coconut milk (or any other plantbased milk)
  • 1 cup oats
  • 100 g dates
  • 50 g chopped walnuts
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 flax seed eggs (mix 2 tbsp grinded flax seed with 6 spsk boiling water – read more below)
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp carob powder (or an extra tbsp cacao if you don’t have carob powder)
  • Optional: 1 ekstra banana for the top

Turn on the oven to 180 degrees.

Prepare the flax seed eggs:

In generel you use 1 tbsp flax seeds to get one flax seed egg which is the equivalent of 1 ordinary egg. Since we need 2 flax seed eggs for this recipe you use 2 tbsp af flax seeds. Grind the 2 tbsp of flax seeds and mix with 6 tbsp boiling water. Set aside a couple of minutes. If you don’t have a grinder, just put the flax seeds in the boiling water, and after a couple of minutes you strain the slime from the flax seeds and use the slime. Save the flax seeds for later use in porridge or smoothie.

Blend together bananas, coconut milk, oats, dates, cardamom, cinnamon, salt and bakingpowder.

Put ½ of the dough into another bowl and mix in cacao and carob powder, add the chopped walnuts to the other half. Now add 1 flaxseed egg to each bowl and mix.

Put the dough in layers in a tin, I used a 3L tin. Top with one slized banana and bake in the oven for 1-1½ hour. You could very easily spread some melted chocolate on top after baking.

 

Have a beautiful weekend..

Bananbrød

  • 4 modne bananer
  • 1 dl kokosmælk (eller anden plantemælk)
  • 2 1/4 dl havregryn
  • 100 g dadler
  • 50 g hakkede valnødder
  • 1 tsk kardemomme
  • 1 tsk kanel
  • 1 nip salt
  • 1 tsk bagepulver
  • 2 hørfrøæg (2 spsk kværnet hørfrø mixes med 6 spsk kogende vand – læs mere nedenfor)
  • 1 spsk kakao pulver
  • 1 spsk caroboulver (eller en ekstra spsk kakao)
  • Valgfrit: En ekstra banan til toppen

Tænd ovnen på 180 grader.

Forbered hørfrøæggene:

Helt generelt bruger man 1 spsk hørfrø til 1 hørfrøæg som svarer til 1 almindeligt æg. I denne opskrift skal vi bruge 2 hørfrøæg, og derfor 2 spsk hørfrø. Knus dem, fx. i en kaffekværn og bland dem med 6 spsk kogende vand. Sæt til siden et par minutter. Hvis ikke du kan knuse hørfrøene, tilsætter du blot det kogende vand. Efter et par minutter dannes “hørfrø-slim”. Si hørfrøene fra og brug slimet som æg. Gem hørfrøene og kom dem i fx. grød eller smoothie.

Blend bananer, kokosmælk, havregryn, dadler, salt, bagepulver, kanel og kardemomme.

Tag ½ af dejen i en anden skål og bland det med kakao og carobpulver, bland de hakkede valnødder med den anden halvdel. Kom 1 hørfrøæg i hver skål og bland grundigt.

Kom nu lagvis den mørke og den lyse i dej i en kageform, jeg brugte en brødform på 3 L. Top med en halvereret banan. Bages i ovnen 1-1½ time. Kan med fordel smøres med lidt smeltet chokolade på toppen når den har bagt færdig.

 

Jeg ønsker jer alle en dejlig weekend!
