Darcy's Banana Bread

This is named after a friend's little girl who is on a restricted diet so protein content really matters. It sounds complicated but I am assured it is actually very quick and easy!

MEWS free, corn free, nut free and delicious!

PREHEAT oven to 170C


350g peeled bananas (peeled weight)
180g-200g plain flour (rice and quinoa flour mixed works well with 140g-150g rice flour to 30g-40g quinoa flour)
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1tsp salt
1/3 cup brown sugar and white sugar mixed (if you convert this measurement remember different ingredients have different weights to cup values....)
1 tbsp water
1tsp xanthan gum
3tbsp oil plus any extra to grease a loaf tin
splash of vanilla extract (I use the Madagascan vanilla extract from Lakeland, it's lovely!)
1tsp cinnamon (optional)

Optional nutritional supplements :-
2tsp calcium and vit D powder
5 scoops of Neocate
dash of apple juice if using the above and the acid helps the rise


Mash bananas in a large bowl
Mix Sugar, water and oil and microwave/heat 30 seconds. CAREFUL IT WILL BE VERY HOT!!
The oil will be sitting on top of the sugar so whisk through then whisk it into the bananas fast. (You could use a Kenwood type mixer instead)
Add vanilla, salt to this "wet" bowl

Mix everything else into the dry bowl and sift in to the wet bowl.
Pour into a lined loaf tin, if you want a crunchy top then sprinkle some brown sugar over it before baking.
Bake until a knife or cocktail stick comes out clean, allow to cool then cut in slices. Freezes well.

IF YOU CAN USE EGGS THERE IS A BANANA MUFFIN/LOAF RECIPE HERE WHICH IS A GOOD ALTERNATIVE. I am looking forward to trying this myself - thanks Claire!
