CINNAMON WALNUT BANANA BREAD

February 19, 2018 by Renee Tavoularis

CINNAMON WALNUT BANANA BREAD

This healthy twist on banana bread features two layers of cinnamon walnut streusel by using low-glycemic coconut sugar to give it a deep, nutty flavor. Using a smaller amount of maple syrup along with the mashed bananas ensures this bread will satisfy your sweet tooth without the negative effects of a sugar rush.

Ingredients

For the CINNAMON WALNUT STREUSEL:
1 cup walnuts
¼ cup coconut sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
¼ cup coconut oil, melted

For the BANANA BREAD:

⅓ cup maple syrup
2 ripe bananas, mashed
½ cup coconut oil, melted
½ cup unsweetened almond milk
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
2 cups all-purpose flour (gluten-free)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
Coconut oil, for greasing

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F and lightly grease a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan with coconut oil.
  • Prepare the Cinnamon Walnut Streusel by placing the walnuts, coconut sugar and cinnamon in a food processor or high-speed blender. Pulse a few times to break up the large pieces of walnuts. Continue to blend for another 20-30 seconds until a fine powder forms.
  • Transfer streusel to a medium bowl and pour in the melted coconut. Using your hands, mix the coconut oil into the walnut mixture until small crumbs form. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, place the maple syrup, bananas and coconut oil. Using a whisk, beat out any large clumps of banana and make sure the mixture is smooth. Pour in the almond milk and the apple cider vinegar and whisk to incorporate.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Stir the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and use a spatula to make gently incorporate it. Be careful not to overmix.
  • Pour half of the banana bread batter into the prepared loaf pan. Top with half of the streusel mixture before pouring in the remaining banana bread batter. Sprinkle the remaining streusel mixture on top.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes or until a knife or a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the top is golden brown. Let cool for 15 minutes in the pan before loosening the sides with a butter knife and removing the loaf from the pan.
  • Allow to cool completely before slicing. Bread can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
