Healthy and wholesome, this delicious bread is naturally sugar-free, grain-free, gluten-free and egg-free.
It is as tasty and enjoyable as ordinary banana bread, but is made with much healthier ingredients.
The bread is not extremely sweet, but with some sugar-free jam it is perfect for tea, and if you add a savoury topping like almond butter, it is equally delicious.
A slice of this cake is extremely filling and energizing, making it a great breakfast or the perfect snack for cold winter mornings and afternoons. Slice it up and pop a piece into your lunchbox or you can also freeze it and grab a slice when needed.
Last but not least, this is very simple to make. So enjoy a tasty new treat that is naturally good for you!

130g almond flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
A sprinkling of cinnamon (optional)

1 tsp vanilla extract
100g pecan nuts (optional)
Vanilla Canderel (optional)
Preheat the oven to 175 C
Combine the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and xanthan gum in a mixing bowl.
