IMG_0940

Good morning! I don't know about you, but I cannot get enough of banana bread! Well I just can't get enough of bananas in general. Today's post is all about the Banana Pecan Loaf! This is an easy recipe that is healthy, and will use up those black bananas you have. Let's get started... IMG_6821

You will need:

4-5 ripe bananas, mashed

1/2 cup of chopped pecans

1/2 cup of coconut oil or vegan butter (or regular butter)

1/2 cup of coconut sugar (or brown sugar)

2 eggs

1 1/2 cup of flour

2 tsp of baking powder

1 tsp of baking soda

1 tbsp of cinnamon

A pinch of salt

To start, preheat your oven to 325 degrees. The lower temperature ensures that the inside of the loaf will bake through while the outside doesn't burn. Beat the butter and sugar together until a creamy yellow paste forms.

Add in each egg one at a time. In a separate bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients together.

Once the eggs are incorporated, add in the bananas and pecans.

Once the bananas and pecans are mixed in, add in the dry ingredients.

When all is incorporated well, pop the batter into a greased 1 pound loaf pan, and bake for around 1 hour and 20 minutes. After the 1 hour mark, just keep checking the centre of the loaf if it is cooked through. Once the centre is cooked, take out of the oven and enjoy! I like my banana bread with cream cheese or even peanut butter. This is a recipe that will surely impress anyone that tries it!
