Recipe 2Bec’s Fave Banana Bread (from The 4 Blades)

Bec's Fave Banana Bread

This Thermomix banana bread recipe was created for the launch of The 4 Blades Magazine, back in November 2014. It was a bit indulgent, creating a banana bread with all Bec’s favourite features, wasn’t it? Grain free, dairy free, sweet, with nuts and spices and a little on the oilier side. Delicious! We are sharing it with you now that we have re-released this first issue, The Tea Party Issue, with a bit of a facelift. If you own it, you are able to get the update for free. If you don’t, it’s on special for the month of May 2016 for only $4.99!

Recipe 3No Sugar Grain Free Banana Bread (from The 4 Blades)

No Sugar Grain Free Banana Bread

We wanted to create a no sugar grain free banana bread for Polly to have as a snack. We came up with this. Spoiler alert: we LOVED it. Our protein loving carnivorous child decided to opt for something more along the lines of a lamb cutlet with vegetables. Aside from the bananas, there is no other sweetener in this Thermomix banana bread so it is a good one if you fancy something a little sweet when reducing your sugar intake.

Here are some cool tips from this podcast… 

  • Butterflies taste through their feet!
  • As bananas ripen they turn from starch to sugar, which is why it’s great to use overripe bananas for banana breads.
  • Do you have bananas that are at the end of their life? Peel and freeze in a ziplock bag. These over ripe bananas are perfectly sweet for baking.
