Chai Banana Bread

I always pop a little cinnamon and ginger in my banana bread – so I thought I’d take it a step further and introduce cardamom and nutmeg to the mix for a true chai flavour šŸ’• When I put chai banana bread up for a vote against chai-chocolate doughnuts you guys voted this the hands-down winner on Instagram! So here it is – gluten free, vegan and refined sugar free of course…

Chai Banana BreadĀ 
Ingredients:Ā 

1 cup buckwheat flour

3/4 cup almond flour

1-2 tsp ground cardamom (depending on how much you like it!)

1 tsp ground nutmeg

2 heaped tsp ground ginger

2 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tsp gluten free baking powder

1/3 cup organic coconut sugar

1/3 cup oil (coconut, hazelnut, rapeseed work well)

5 large ripe or over-ripe bananas, mashed

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Method:
  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees (160 fan assisted). Combine the dry ingredients (flours, spices, coconut sugar, baking powder) in a bowl until well mixed.
  2. Add the oil, vanilla extract and mashed bananas and mix until you have a sticky dough.
  3. Add the dough to a loaf tin lined with parchment paper or greased with oil. Pop in the oven.
  4. Wait 50 minutes (I know, right?!) or until the bread is golden on top and a skewer comes out clean.
  5. Leave the chai banana bread to cool slightly before tucking in (if you can wait that long!)

Serve with a cup of freshly brewed chai latte or coffee. Aura Chai banana bread works beautifully with nut butters and chia jam – I like it as a tasty afternoon snack or as a breakfast treat!
