Banana, Pecan and buckwheat loaf

My husband has a not very secret guilty habit: he can never pass by a good deal in the market! Sometimes it's a good thing - in summer no one complains about a glut of strawberries at home - but other times it's not - vast quantities of bananas that need eating by yesterday can be (to put it nicely) a burden. This recipe is useful when you find yourself with over-ripe bananas that no-one wants to eat because- well - we are all a bit fussy that way.



  • 70g coconut oil (softened)
  • 100g coconut nectar sugar
  • 3 over-ripe bananas (mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 150g ground almonds
  • 100g buckwheat flour
  • 1&1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • A handful or two of pecans or walnuts

Step 1

Beat together the coconut oil, cocnut sugar and the 3 mashed bananas.

Step 2

Fold in the ground almonds, buckwheat and baking powder

Step 3

Mix in the pecan nuts

Step 4

Bake at 180 degrees. Check it's cooked by pushing a skewer into the centre of the cake. It shoudl come out clean.
