  • Ingredients
    • 700ml almond flour / almond meal
    • 3 organic free-range eggs
    • 3 ripe organic bananas
    • 60ml virgin coconut oil
    • 100ml acacia honey
    • 1,5 tsp bicarbonate of soda
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1tsp ground ginger (optional)
    • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
    • 1/2 tsp sea salt
    • Handful of walnuts

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.

Slowly melt the coconut oil in a bain-marie (water bath) and leave to cool for a couple of minutes. Mash the three bananas with a fork and transfer to a bowl. Add the remaining wet ingredients - eggs, coconut oil, honey and vanilla extract, and mix well.

In another bowl combine the dry ingredients - almond flour, bicarbonate of soda, ground ginger, cinnamon and sea salt.

Add the wet mixture to the dry along with the walnuts and mix well. Grease a non-stick or silicon loaf tin with coconut oil and pour in the mixture.

Bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes. Before taking it out make sure it’s cooked through by piercing the cake with a metal skewer and make sure it comes out clean.

  • Thanks for this recipe! I used agave nectar in the place of acacia honey (same amount) and it came out perfectly.
