Strawberry Banana Bread

This recipe truly couldn't be any easier. Not only is it gluten free and vegan, it contains no refined sugars and is easy on the dishes!

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp flax seed powder or chia seeds + 6 tbsp water
  • 2 cups gluten-free oats (you may need a little extra)
  • 3 large over ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup pitted medjool dates
  • ½ cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries (plus a few extras for garnish)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees celsius
  2. Line a regular sized bread pan with parchment paper
  3. Add ground flax or chia seeds with water in small bowl and set aside
  4. Make sure your blender is perfectly dry and add oats. Blend oats until they make a fine flour. We will need 2 cups of flour so if you need a little extra you can blend a little more up. Place in small bowl on the side
  5. Add bananas, dates, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, apple cider vinegar, baking powder, baking soda and salt to blender and blend until nice and smooth
  6. Slowly add in oat flour to wet mixture until blended
  7. Pour a bit of mixture into the bread pan and then layer in half of your strawberries and give them a mix in. Add more batter then rest of your strawberries and give it all a stir in the pan
  8. Top mixture with your strawberries for garnish if you wish
  9. Bake for 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean
  10. Allow bread to cool completely before slicing.
  11. Enjoy!

Optional: You can certainly add nuts, or dairy free chocolate chips to this if you wish. You could also omit the strawberries and top with some additional bananas if prefer.
