Ingredients

  • ½ cup Califia Farms Oat + Almond Blend
  • 4 ripe bananas, mashed 
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour 
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder 
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon 
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg 
  • Pinch of sea salt 
  • ½ cup organic brown sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar 
  • ¼ cup vegan butter, melted 
  • ¼ cup agave syrup 
  • 1 banana, sliced, for topping

 

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line a loaf pan with parchment paper. Lightly grease the paper using vegan butter or coconut oil. 
  2. In a large bowl, combine the mashed bananas, melted butter, agave, vanilla, Oat + Almond Blend, and apple cider vinegar, whisking them together until well combined. 
  3. Next, stir in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, organic brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt and mix until combined and batter becomes smooth yet thick. Be cautious not to over-mix.
  4. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan and gently place the sliced banana slices on top of batter (lightly pressing them in so they stay in place). 
  5. Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick or knife that is inserted in the middle comes out clean. 
  6. Once done, remove bread from oven and let it cool for 10-15 minutes before gently removing it from the loaf pan to cool completely. 
  7. Once fully cooled, slice and enjoy!
