TO DIE FOR.
Banana Walnut Bread
1-1/2c barley flour
1/2c maple sugar
1t baking soda
1t baking powder
1T safflower oil
3T coconut oil
2 super ripe bananas, diced
3/4 nut milk
1t brown rice vinegar
1t red wine vinegar
3T maple sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Oil a loaf pan or 6 muffin tin/ containers.
Prepare the dry ingredients by sifting them into a large mixing bowl; the barley flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and maple sugar. Add in the chopped walnuts.
In another small bowl, combine all of the wet ingredients; the bananas, oils, nut milk, and the vinegars.
Mix the wet into the dry and pour into a well-oiled pan. Mix only until just incorporated- do not overmix.
Sprinkle the maple sugar over the entire surface of the loaf and bake for 35 minutes. Rotate the pan and continue to bake for another 8-10 minutes.
Let cool in the pan on a rack for 15 minutes and then remove the loaf entirely to the rack to let cool. Once cool, you can place it back into the loaf pan.
For the loaf, let it cool thoroughly before attempting to slice into it.
