We can't take credit for this recipe... this scrumptious recipe comes from Teresa Cutter's 'Purely Delicious Cookbook'.
* 300 g ripe banana
* 3 eggs
* 60 g honey or maple syrup
* 60 ml macadamia nut oil
* 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
* 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
* 1 tablespoon lemon juice
* 200 g almond meal
* 25 g ground flaxseed (linseed)
Preheat your oven to 160C - fan forced.
Combine smashed banana, honey, oil, cinnamon, vanilla, eggs, baking soda, and lemon (the lemon activates the baking soda). You can do this by hand in a large bowl or with a good blender.
Add the almond meal and flaxseed and mix well.
Lightly oil one loaf tin and then coat liberally with an extra almond meal or desiccated coconut - this will prevent the cake from sticking. The size I used was: 10 1/2 cm wide and 26 cm long.
Spoon batter into the tin and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour (a skewer inserted into the centre should come out dry).
Cover the top with foil if over-browning.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool before turning out the loaf.
Keeps in the fridge covered for up to 1 week.
