Banana bread with dark chocolate and toasted almonds // Guest blogger: Anna-mad
Hello lovelies! It is time for the second of the 8 drool-worthy foodie guest posts that I will share while I am on vacation here in LA. This week I have handed over the blog to Anna from the Danish foodie blog Anna-mad and she is sharing her delicious and healthified recipe for this yummy banana bread. Make sure you check out Anna’s blog for more amazing recipes!
My name is Anna, and I’m the 19 year old girl behind the food blog Anna-mad (which translated into English means ‘Anna-food’), where I share simple, everyday dishes – not to forget lots of cake and other sweet stuff. I’m almost always thinking about food, eating it or developing new recipes, because I just cannot help it. I’m probably what you call a ‘Foodie’ with a big F!
However when I’m not doing something with food, I’m taking a gap year and working as a substitute teacher at a primary school. And I love it!
Today I’m lucky to share one of my favourite recipes with you here on sweet Signe’s delicious blog A Million Miles. It is a (kind of) healthy banana bread, without sugar, made with whole-wheat flour and filled with chunks of dark chocolate and toasted almonds – one of those you can eat all day, even for breakfast ;)
3 ripe bananas
1 big tablespoon of butter (15 g – alternatively coconut oil)
2 tablespoons of honey
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla powder
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 big teaspoon of ground cinnamon
170 g of whole-wheat flour
50 g almonds
50 g dark chocolate
Start by toasting the almonds in the oven at 160 c for ten minutes. Let them cool of. Mash the bananas in a bowl and melt the butter (for example in a microwave). Mix bananas with butter, honey and eggs. Mix flour, salt, baking powder, vanilla powder and cinnamon in another bowl and whip it together with the banana-mixture. Chop the toasted almonds and dark chocolate roughly, fold it into the batter and pour it into an loaf baking tin, lined with greaseproof paper. Bake the banana bread at 180 c for about 40 minutes. Let it cool of a bit, before you eat it.
