Refined Sugar Free Spelt Banana Loaf with Streusel

Labels: { , , , } | © 2018 | | © 2018 |

Use the natural sweetness of very ripe bananas to sweeten this delicious banana bread. It's perfect for those who are avoiding refined sugar. The thick streusel topping, lightly sweetened with coconut sugar, is an integral part of the banana bread, and provides a flavourful crunchy texture, so don't skip it.

Streusel ToppingBatter
  • 150 g Whole spelt flour
  • 80 g Coconut sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 100 g Cold butter, diced
  • 2 Very ripe large bananas, mashed
  • 2 tbsp Pumpkin seed oil
  • 190 g 3.5% Plain yoghurt
  • 2 Eggs, medium
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 150 g Whole spelt flour
  • 100 g Almond flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 100 g Raisins or chocolate chips
  1. Combine flour, coconut sugar, and pinch of salt in a bowl. Add in vanilla and butter. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Store in the fridge until ready for use.
  2. Preheat oven to 190C/375F. Lightly grease a 30-cm loaf pan and line with baking paper.
  3. In a mixing bowl, mash the bananas and add in pumpkin seed oil, yoghurt, eggs and vanilla extract. Stir to combine. Sift in spelt flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt. Stir to combine. Fold in raisins or chocolate chips.
  4. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the surface with prepared streusel. Bake for about an hour or until a skewer inserted in centre of bread comes out clean. Stand in pan for 10 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack top-side up to cool completely. | © 2018 | | © 2018 | | © 2018 |
