Inspired by a recipe for Banana and walnut bread recipe here, I had a go at making something similar using my favourite nuts, Pecans! This recipe is grain, dairy and gluten free
Banana and pecan bread tastes amazing with a little butter or dairy free spread on top while still warm, Mmmmm!
3 small bananas or 2 large ( ripe) mashed
110 g ground almonds ( almond flour )
70g pecans which i roasted in the oven for about 5 mins with a little coconut oil and ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 generous tbsp honey ( I used raw honey )
Pre heat oven 200c
put pecans, cinnamon and a little melted coconut oil on a baking tray in hot oven for 5 mins ( this is not essential you can just use pecans as they are.
mix ground almonds and bicarb of soda together
beat eggs, add honey and mashed bananas
remove pecans from the oven
use a rolling pins to roughly break up pecans
add to mixture
pour into lined square cake tin 8in
bake for 20 mins at 200c

cut into squares and serve with butter or on its own.
