You'll need:

170 g                    wholemeal spelt flour
80 g                      Letifico Hazelnut Flour
10 g                       cocoa powder
15 g                       baking powder

3                            ripe bananas
2                            large eggs
60 g                      coconut oil
100 g                    honey
100 mL                dairy-free milk substitution
                              (almond milk, rice milk…)

100 g                    roast hazelnuts, chopped
150 g                    dark chocolate, chopped

Letifico Honey Creme with Aronia (optional)

When you get everything, then:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. In a large bowl mix the Letifico Hazelnut Flour and spelt flour, the sifted baking powder and cocoa powder.
  3. In another bowl mash the bananas with a fork until they turn into a thick mixture without bigger chunks. Then add the eggs, oil, honey and the milk substitution and combine them.
  4. Mix the flour mixture into the banana mixture. Then add the chopped roast hazelnuts and the chocolate.
  5. Pour the banana bread mixture into a loaf tin lined with baking paper and bake in the oven (180°C with the fan turned on) for 10 minutes, and then 30-35 more minutes with the fan off. Check if the bread is done by sticking a toothpick into the center of the loaf – if there’s wet batter, it’ll need a bit more time.

The banana bread shouldn’t be too moist, because the bananas will already give it plenty of moisture.

The banana bread should be chilled before you dig into it. I added some Letifico Honey Creme with Aronia, but feel free to add some of you favourite ice cream, too!
