Ingredients:

  • 5 very ripe banana’s, mashed
  • 2/3 c. coconut oil, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 18 dates, chopped into bit sized pieces
  • 2 1/2 t. vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 c. oat flour, freshly ground old fashioned oats is what I used
  • 1/4 c. unsweetened coconut flour
  • 2. T. almond milk
  • 2 1/2 t. cinnamon
  • pinch cloves
  • pinch allspice
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1 t. salt

Preparation: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease 3 small loaf pans or 1 large loaf pan.
  2. In an electric mixer place the banana’s. Stir them until they are mushy.
  3. Add the coconut oil and stir to combine.
  4. Slowly add the eggs one at a time, mix until well combine.
  5. Add the vanilla and dates and stir.
  6. In a separate bowl combine all the dry ingredients.
  7. Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. DO NOT OVER MIX!
  8. With a spatula stir in the almond milk to moisten the batter.
  9. Pour into prepared pans and bake for 35 minutes.

*It is very important to not over bake these or else they will be really crumbly. 35 minutes was all they needed for the small loaf pans. I always hate waiting the full hour for the normal loaf, doing them in a small pan gets you eating your bread quicker! Plus, everyone always loves the crunchy edges and with small loaves you get more of that!
