Breakfast

Breakfast Loaf

We’re still making great efforts to continue with #betterbreakfasts in the Simply Homemade home. I find having things made in advance a huge help and at this stage, more than halfway through the year, I’m delighted with the progress we’ve made.

This breakfast loaf is quick to throw together. I bake it the night before and it’s just a matter of slicing it in the morning and it’s ready.

Ingredients

110g Ground Almonds
65g Oat Flour (blitzed porridge oats)
25g Coconut Flour
1 tsp Bread Soda
1 tsp Cinnamon
Pinch Salt
30g Chopped Hazelnuts
1 1/2 Mashed Bananas (keep the remaining half to top the loaf)
70g Honey
2 Eggs, separated

 

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 160 and prepare a loaf tin, either grease and line or use a loaf tin liner (very convenient!)
  • In one bowl combine the ground almonds, oat flour, coconut flour, bread soda, cinnamon, salt and hazelnuts.
  • In another bowl whisk together the banana, honey and egg yolks. Whisk the egg whites separately until stiff.
  • Pour the banana mixture into the flours and combine well. Then fold the egg whites into the bread mixture.
  • Spoon the bread mix into the loaf tin. Cut the remaining banana into slices or what my children call ‘banana pennies’ and place them on top.

Bake in the centre of the oven for 35 minutes. Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.

They all enjoyed it but did ask if they could have some chocolate spread on it the next time!! I don’t buy chocolate spread, instead I mix a little cacao and maple syrup with some almond butter. Quick, simple, low in sugar; and the children all enjoy it.

  1. That sounds absolutely delicious and so easy. I seem to have been relying on a lot of quick fixes over a few hectic weeks recently, but really want to get back into cooking and baking properly again. I’m never very inspired for breakfast so this is perfect!

  4. Oh his looks delicious and it’s brilliant you used oat flour over regular flour, I must try this, I wonder could you leave out out the coconut?? It’s actually quite hard to find a nice recipe for banana bread online
