Vegan Gluten Free Banana Bread Vanilla Crunnch

You Will Need:

4 bananas, mashed

1 tbs melted coconut oil

⅓ cup agave syrup

1tbs chia seeds mixed with 3tbs water

⅓ cup cacao nibs

⅓ cup dark chopped dark chocolate

1 cup spelt flour (I used a gluten-free one, whole wheat works as well)

1tbs baking powder

¼ tbsp baking soda

a dash of cinnamon

¼ tsp vanilla extract

¼ cup coconut milk

2tbs cacao powder

• Preheat the oven to 350F (180°)

• Combine the mashed bananas, coconut oil, agave and the chia seed water mixture into a mixing bowl. Mix until well combined.

• Stir in the flour and the baking powder

• Take about ⅓ of the batter and mix it with the coconut milk, the cacao powder, chopped chocolate, cinnamon and vanilla.

• Pour the plain batter into a lined loaf tin and top with the chocolate half. Take a knife and “cut” trough the batter a couple of times to create a marbled effect.

• Top with sliced bananas

• Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick stuck into the middle comes out clean.

• Let it cool for a bit before slicing.

• Serve warm with homemade Nutella
