#BananaBread for coffee. It smelt and later tasted so amazing…Mr Dahiya was hovering around the kitchen and me (oh yeah) 😉all throughout! 🎉 SIMPLE RECIPE : •3 ripe bananas. •60 gm coconut /vegetable / olive oil. •4 table spoon Maple syrup/ erythritol/ any other sweetner. •1 teaspoon – Vanilla flavor •1 tsp Cinnamon powder •150 gm Gluten-free flour blend/ regular flour •150 gm almond flour •2 heaped tsp baking powder. •1/4 tsp baking soda (if you have) •1 tsp apple cider vinegar / white vinegar/ white wine. •120 ml almond milk / coconut milk / normal milk. •2 Eggs (can avoid too). •Raisins/ walnuts/ pecan nuts/ almonds/ coconut scrapes (any according to your choice). 🍰 DRY INGREDIENTS : •In a bowl sift in dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. (Except nuts and raisins). (Almond flour has thick texture, put it without sieving) 🍰 WET INGREDIENTS : •In another deep bowl put oil, vanilla, eggs, vinegar, maple syrup/ sweetner, almond milk. Add them one by one and keep mixing thoroughly. •Mash banana thoroughly and mix in it. Add dry ingredients to wet bowl. Mix. Add nuts and raisins. Mix. (Keep some separate for garnish). 🍰 BAKING : •Preheat oven at 180 degree C. •Prepare baking tin (Google to know your options). •Line it with butter paper and oil. I lined my tin with oil and flour but I didn't apply butter paper as I used a Bundt pan. •Fill the tin with the batter. •Bake at 180 degree C for 45 or till skewer/ toothpick/ knife comes out clean. 🍰 NOTE : MOSTLY I DON'T HAVE ALL INGREDIENTS IN MY PANTRY. I FIND APPROPRIATE ALTERNATES AND EXPERIMENT. 🍰 "Bake with a bit of mind and a lot of heart". -Divyanka
