Serves: 12 slices
- 4 eggs
- 4 medium ripe bananas, mashed
- 2 T honey, melted
- 100mls coconut oil, melted
- Zest of 1 lemon
- 1 t vanilla essence
- ½ c coconut flour
- ½ c almond flour
- 2 t baking powder
- ¼ t salt
- Preheat oven to 170°C. Line a loaf tin with baking paper.
- To make the Lemon Coconut Bread, place eggs, bananas, honey, coconut oil, lemon zest and vanilla essence in a bowl and mix until combined.
- Add dry ingredients and stir to evenly combine (it is quite a wet mixture but coconut flour is very absorbent so it will thicken). Pour into loaf tin and allow to sit for 5 minutes until it swells.
- Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. You may need to cover with tinfoil after about 30 minutes of cooking time if the top is turning too brown.
- Allow to stand in loaf tin for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing. Store in an airtight container in the pantry or freezer.
- Top Tip: Coconut flour is one of the only flours that can’t be swapped out one for one with other flours due to its dense texture and the fact it requires a lot of liquid.
