We are clearly feeling super-duper generous right now. Why? Because we are giving away one of our members’ absolute favourite recipes from our first book, SuperFastDiet to you! This scrumptious, simple healthy Banana Choc-Chip loaf is the perfect twist on a tasty family favourite. Check out the recipe below.
Banana choc-chip loaf
50 g butter
1⁄4 cup (60 ml) pure maple syrup, plus 2 teaspoons extra
3 medium overripe bananas, mashed
2 x 120 g tubs unsweetened apple puree
1⁄2 teaspoon mixed spice
1⁄4 cup (50 g) dark choc bits
2 cups (300 g) wholemeal self-raising flour
1⁄2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Line the base and sides of a 21 cm x 11 cm loaf tin with baking paper.
Place the butter, maple syrup, banana, apple puree and mixed spice in a bowl.
Using a hand-held electric mixer, mix on high speed for 1–2 minutes or until well combined and lighter in colour.
Add the choc bits, flour and bicarbonate of soda and stir until just combined – don’t overmix as this will toughen the mixture.
Spoon into the prepared tin and level the surface. Bake the loaf for 55 minutes or golden and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Remove from the oven and immediately brush the top with the extra maple syrup.
Allow to cool in the tin for 20 minutes, then turn out and slice. Serve warm, or cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days (toast before serving), or freeze for up to 2 months.
