GF Ginger and Chia Banana Bread Recipe and a GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!!!

Hi all I have a weekend treat for you! 
A delicious banana bread which is moist and spongy and goes very well with a cuppa! I have made banana bread in the past but this has got to be my favourite so far and I pretty sure thats down to the ginger coconut sugar I put in it (obviously!). This Banana Bread recipe is gluten free, lactose free, and refined sugar free basically its awesome!

Ginger and Chia Banana Bread


1.5 cups gluten free plain flour
2 tsp gluten free baking powder 
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
2 ripe bananas, mashed
2 eggs
1 cup Coconom ginger coconut sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tsp vanilla extract 
1 Tbsp chia seeds


Preheat your oven to a medium heat.

In a large bowl add all dry ingredients and combine.

In a separate bowl add bananas, mash, then add all the other liquid ingredients and combine.

Add wet ingredients to dry and mix, don't over mix though gluten free flour can go a bit funny if you over work it! 

Pour batter into a loaf tin lined with parchment paper then sprinkle with the chia seeds. 

Bake for 40-45 minutes, check bread is done by using a skewer, if it comes out clean its ready to come out of the oven.

Let the bread cool but have a slice when its still warm with a cuppa its so joyous!!

It is also rather perfect for breakfast which is what I had today! The cake is really light and will be being made a lot more in my kitchen, especially as it had a big thumbs up from Dale : )
