While part of me mourns the end of summer and cooler (soon to be cold) weather, I also love the fact that I can now comfortably turn on the oven and return to one of my favorite pastimes: baking. As is often the case, some very ripe bananas staring at me from the counter inspired me to make banana bread this morning. I’m a big fan of using whatever I have on hand rather than buying ingredients so that led me to look for a recipe using millet flour and oats. I found one, made some revisions and was very pleased with the result. Enjoy!
- 1 cup millet flour
- 1/2 cup uncooked oats
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp fine sea salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ vanilla powder
- 1 large egg
- 2 very ripe bananas
- 1/3 cup water (you also also use almond or rice milk)
- ½ cup coconut sugar
- ¼ cup coconut oil
I added a mix of dried fruit and nuts to mine and was very pleased with the result.
- In a large bowl mix the dry ingredients together.
- In a blender blend the sugar, bananas, oil, water and egg.
- Slowly mix the wet mixture into the dry.
- Add nuts or anything else you desire.
- Pour the mixture into a lined or greased pan.
- Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes (until a toothpick or knife slides out clean)
