Rustic Carrot-Banana Bread with Walnuts (Gluten Free)

Try this easy to make banana bread, it's packed full of flavour and is a tasty treat for those colder Winter afternoons. Plus for any gluten free lovers out there this is a perfect recipe. . .


3 Bananas, whole

1 cup Grated Carrots

1 tsp Grated Ginger, fresh

3/4 cup Rolled oats

1/3 cup Maple syrup

2 tsp Baking powder

1 tsp Cinnamon

1 1/3 cups Flour

1/2 tsp Salt

2 tbsp Olive oil

2 tsp Flax seed, ground

1 cup Walnuts

1/2 tsp of Brown sugar

1/2 cup Orange juice, zest

How to make:

  • Line a loaf pan with parchment paper or grease with coconut oil.

  • Preheat oven to 210°C.

  • Combine the wet ingredients in a large mixing bowl, mashing the bananas, grated carrot & ginger, maple syrup, citrus juice and oil.

  • Carefully fold in the dry ingredients until a thickened batter forms.

  • Pour the mixture into baking loaf tin/cake dish and sprinkle a few rolled oats over top.

  • Add sprinkle of coarse brown sugar over top too.

  • Bake at 210°C for 20 minutes, then reduce heat and bake for an additional 15 minutes at 155°C. The loaf will firm up a bit as it cools, but keep in mind that this is a hearty, more dense loaf with lots of texture in every bite.

  • Allow too cool, slice and serve.

  • Store leftover, covered, in the fridge or freezer and re-warm to serve.

Voila! Bon appetite!
