- 270g of Ground Almonds
- 1 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
- 1/2 Teaspoon of Cinnamon

- 75ml of Maple Syrup
- 60ml of Melted Coconut Oil

This is an updated version of my classic recipe*. It’s one of my all time favourite things to make and it’s such a crowd pleaser. It’s moist and perfectly sweet and the bursting blueberries make it look so gorgeous. It also fills your kitchen with the most delicious smell! I like to serve this warm after letting it cool a little or lightly toasted.
Preheat the oven to 180’C.
Combine the ground almonds, baking powder and cinnamon in a large bowl.
Add 3 bananas to a blender with the vanilla extract, maple syrup melted coconut oil and 100ml of chickpea water from the tin (keep the chickpeas for something else). Blend until smooth.
Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well. Mix in the blueberries.
Spread the mixture out into a 1lb loaf tin. If you want to, cut another banana in half lengthways and press it into the mixture.
Bake for about 65 minutes until golden brown and a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean. Let it cool completely on a wire rack before removing from the tin and slicing.
