Hey guys! Another food post is coming your way! I decided to do something a little different with this recipe by including the macros (carbohydrate, protein and fat contents) and energy contents per portion. A lot of recipes you find online or even in cook books don’t include these so I thought would be helpful for anyone into fitness or who is tracking macros.
This recipe is vegan and provides 8 servings!
Spelt Flour – 310 grams
Cocoa Powder – 30 grams
Baking Powder – 2 teaspoons
Ground Cinnamon – 1 teaspoon
Maple Syrup – 180 ml
Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk – 125 ml
Coconut Oil – 80 ml (normal oil can be used if you’re not a fan of coconut)
Mashed Ripe Banana – x3
Vanilla Extract – 1 teaspoon
Hot Water – 2 tablespoons
- Pre-heat the oven to 180’c and line a loaf tin with baking paper let the paper hang the over the sides of the tin for easy removal
- Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon and baking powder in a bowl
- Create a well in the middle and add the maple syrup, almond milk, oil, water and vanilla extract into the well
- Stir in the mashed banana and pour the mixture into the tin
- Bake for 45 minutes
