Gluten Free Matcha Green Tea Banana Bread Recipe

Gluten Free Matcha Green Tea Banana Bread

This flavoursome Matcha Green Tea Banana bread is perfect for quick breakfast on the go or as a delicious and nutritious 'pick me up' snack during the day. The best thing about this banana bread is that even though it's healthy it still tastes like a sweet, moreish treat.

I've previously written a post about the benefits of Matcha green tea which I absolutely love and drink every day. Since I know not everyone is into the taste of matcha green tea I thought I would experiment with adding it to banana bread. The result is a very sweet, moist and delicious banana bread with a very light hint of green tea taste.

Gluten Free Matcha Green Tea Banana Bread

RECIPE

INGREDIENTS 

  • 50g cashew nuts 
  • 20g hazelnuts 
  • 80g oats in food processor 
  • 2 tablespoons cacao nibs
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 1 tablespoon cold pressed virgin coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon matcha powder
  • 4 very ripe bananas (or three big ones) 
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar 
  • 1 tablespoon honey 
  • 50g gluten free flour ( you can use normal flour if you don't have a gluten intolerance)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°
  2. Add the nuts and oats to a food processor and process until they are very fine.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until they make a smooth batter ( it will be slightly green in colour due to the matcha green tea)
  4. Add the mixture to a baking tray and bake for about 35-40 minutes or until a fork inserted into the centre comes out clean.
