Avo & Banana Bread

Dry Ingredients

2 C (500 ml) cake flour
¾ C (180 ml) brown sugar
2 tsp (10 ml) baking powder
1 tsp (5ml) baking soda
1 tsp (5 ml) salt

Wet Ingredients

3 overripe bananas
1 avocado
2 eggs
½ C (125 ml) plain full cream yoghurt
1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla extract
1 tsp (5 ml) cinnamon

Cocoa & Nuts

2 Tbsp (30 ml) cocoa powder
2 Tbsp (30 ml) chopped walnuts

To Serve

Avo & Banana Bread

Preheat the oven to 180 ºC.

Add the dry ingredients to a mixing bowl and whisk to combine.

Add the wet ingredients to a mixing bowl and use a stick blender to blitz until smooth. 

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and fold together. Use a kitchen scale to divide the mixture in half into two separate bowls. Add the cocoa powder to one of the bowls and whisk to combine. 

Line a loaf tin with baking paper; place a generous dollop of chocolate batter into the tin on one side, then place a spoon of the regular batter next to it. Repeat the process but alternate the colours to fill the tin. After you’ve got a single layer done, repeat the process to build another layer but on this layer, alternate the colours.

Top with a sprinkling of walnuts and bake in the oven for 55-65 minutes or until a cake skewer comes out clean. Allow to cool completely and then remove from the tin. Slice and serve with butter and lashings of creamy peanut or your favourite nut butter.
