Sweet potato, banana and blueberry bread

On Sundays, if my batch cook is going well, I often spend a bit of time playing around and creating new recipes. A few weeks ago I fancied making an equivalent to banana bread but with lots of sweet potato in it. The aim was a cake that was gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. I eat eggs but realise lots of people don’t, so I decided to dive the mixture into two create a vegan version too.

The result was really pretty yummy for both of them and I have made them again since, keeping them in the fridge and having 1 a day with a cuppa.

I prefer the egg-based version but interestingly, my husband did a taste test and preferred the vegan one (I didn’t tell him which was which).

Ingredients                                                              

  • 150g sweet potato baked and mashed/pureed
  • 1 mashed ripe banana
  • 1 large free range egg
  • Lots of cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 30g buckwheat flour
  • blueberries

Step 1

Whisk together the sweet potato, mashed banana and egg

Step 2

Fold in the dry ingredients

Step 3

Mix in the blueberries using a big metal spoon

Step 4

Bake in a muffin tin at 180°C until a skewer comes out of the centre almost clean. Done!

 

 

Sweet potato, banana and blueberry bread – the gluten, dairy, refined sugar-free and vegan one!

Ingredients

  • 150g sweet potato baked and mashed/pureed
  • 1 mashed ripe banana
  • 150g silken tofu
  • Lots of cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 30g buckwheat flour
  • blueberries

Step 1

Whisk together the sweet potato, mashed banana and silken tofu

Step 2

Fold in the dry ingredients. If the mixture seems to wet, add more ground almonds or more buckwheat flour.

Step 3

Mix in the blueberries using a big metal spoon

Step 4

Bake in a muffin tin at 180°C until a skewer comes out of the centre almost clean. This will take longer than the egg-based version. Done!

You need to keep both versions in the fridge as otherwise they will go mouldy because of the natural ingredients.
