Rainy saturday afternoon and a pile of brown spotty bananas can only mean one thing. Banana bread! Oh and also today is apparently the most depressing day of the year aka ‘Blue Monday’ therefore I thought it was a perfect time to post a warming happy recipe. 

This recipe requires a blender or food processor and you just chuck everything in and blend away like a one pot wonder. Try it one cosy cold night this week.


Serves 8 – GF SF DF* – 60 minutes


2 ripe bananas

1 cup almond meal

1/2 cup coconut flour

3 scoops Vanilla whey protein powder (could sub for almond meal)

150mls almond milk

200mls egg whites

3 Tbs honey or maple syrup or 1/4 cup coconut sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

pinch of cinnamon

1/4 cup cacao nibs for crunch and topping



Blend together all ingredients and pour into a baking loaf tin lined with grease paper.

Bake at 180 degrees for 45 -50 minutes until golden brown.

Leave aside to cool or just slice it hot and enjoy that steamy loaf.

Cut into slices and freeze if there are any pieces left.
