Not only is our seriously moorish, strawberry marbled banana bread out of this world delicious but, it also happens to be all natural made with no refined flours or sugars. It is sweetened naturally with those delicious, yet oh so manky, over-ripe bananas, a splash of vanilla, a drizzle of maple syrup and a pinch of heart warming cinnamon.

Seriously Moorish Strawberry Marbled Banana Bread {Low Carb, Grain Free & Paleo Friendly}
Makes 4 x mini loaves of subtly sweet, deliciously nutty, strawberry swirled, low carb, grain free and paleo friendly banana bread . Or 1 large loaf 🙂

Ingredients –

2 manky over-ripe bananas, mashed

3 eggs

2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, divided.

2 Tablespoons of maple syrup

1/3 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled

4 Tablespoons of warm water

6 Tablespoons of almond meal

6 Tablespoons of coconut flour

1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon of baking soda

a pinch of salt

1 cup of strawberries, roughly chopped

Method –

1 – Preheat your oven to 160’C (320’F) – line your mini loaf pans with baking/parchment paper and set aside.

2 – Place your chopped strawberries into a small bowl, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and use a fork to mash and break down the strawberries a little. Set aside.

3 – Place mashed bananas into a large bowl and add your eggs, coconut oil, vanilla, water and maple syrup into a large bowl and whisk until well combined.

4 – Add your almond meal, coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt and stir to combine.

5 – Now you have 2 options –

A – You can add your mashed strawberries to the banana batter and stir to combine. Then spoon your batter evenly between your prepared loaf pans and use the back of a spoon to smooth down the tops. Or –

B – You can spoon a little of your banana batter into your prepared loaf pans, then spoon over some of your mashed strawberry mix and use your fork to swirl it through the batter, then add a little more banana batter and repeat until all mixture has been used – Just be sure to finish with banana batter 😉

6 – Bake for 10 minutes and then cover with foil and bake for a further 15-20 mins (or 30-40 if making a regular sized loaf) until the tops spring back when lightly pressed and a skewer or toothpick has just a few moist crumbs attached then inserted into the center. If your banana bread is browning more than you’d like but is not quite cooked just pop the foil back on to prevent those precious tops from burning 😉

7 – Once cooked, removed from the oven and allow to cool in the loaf pans for 10 mins before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

8 – Slice and lose yourself the freshly baked, magical deliciousness that you just created.

Enjoy xoxo
