Almost the New Year and time to welcome in 2020!! Many thanks to all of you who have supported me throughout this tough old year, both in person and online. I’m all focused on having a much less emotionally charged 2020 🙂
I hope you all had a wonderful break over the holiday season. We had a very quiet Christmas here and actually made the most of upstairs to decorate. Himself isn’t a big Christmas fan, in fact he doesn’t like it at all, so we keep all the carols, presents and decorations at bay for him. Then it was just a quick overnighter at family and making the most of the great weather we have been having.
This week is a quicky post as themselves are waiting to watch a family DVD and I thought I’d sneak out while they clean up after tea 🙂 The recipe tonight has been taken from The Liver Cleansing Diet by Sandra Cabot and is listed in there as Banana Muffins. As part of my bid to resolve a few health issues I have been looking for a few more body nourishing recipes and came across this one in the recipe section of Sandra Cabot’s book.
I have tried this as muffins however with the GF flour thrown in they came out a little dry. So I decided to double the recipe and reduce the flour a bit which seems to have worked out not too bad … even himself is eating it! It does take a while to cook through as it is quite dense but once the top browns it is there. If you find, once you cut into the loaf, that the middle isn’t quite there then it toasts up a treat 🙂
Banana and Walnut Loaf (GF, RSF and vegan)
4 ripe large bananas
2 Tablespoons of maple syrup
4 Tablespoons of Olive oil
2 Tablespoons LSA
4 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 Cups GF flour (I use Edmonds premixed)
1 Cup of chopped walnuts
- Mash Bananas and mix with the other wet ingredients.
- Add in the walnuts and flour and mix really well to ensure there are no flour lumps
- Transfer mixture into a baking paper lined loaf tin and cover with tin foil
- Bake at 180 C for 60-70 mins, taking off the tin foil about half way through baking.
- Allow to cool before enjoying with a cuppa
Hope this finds you enjoying the last moments of the old year and enthusiastically entering the new year.
