Chocolate Bananut Loaf


~Moist and lush…best enjoyed on a cold day with hot cocoa or tea~

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes


2 cups self raising flour
1 cup raw sugar
3 tbsp cacao powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup dark dairy free cooking chocolate roughly chopped
1/4 cup walnuts roughly chopped
1/4 cup almonds roughly chopped
3 ripe bananas
1/4 cup rice bran oil
3/4 cup almond milk (or any dairy free milk of your choice)
1/2 cup coconut yoghurt (I used Cocobella)


Line a loaf tin with baking paper and preheat oven to 200C.

In a bowl mix together all of the dry ingredients.
In a separate bowl mix together all of the wet ingredients including the nuts and chocolate.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet bowl and fold gently until combined.
Don’t over mix it.

Add the batter into the loaf tin and garnish with some shaved dark chocolate.
Bake for 40-45 minutes. Pierce the loaf with a skewer or a sharp knife and when it
comes out clean it is ready.

Leave to cool for 20 minutes (if you can keep away from it!) and serve warm with some more coconut yoghurt…but I promise it is just as good on it’s own and the next day and the next day after that! The smell is divine and the taste is super lush.

Cooks tip: This recipe is ideal for over ripe bananas. If you don’t have any coconut yoghurt,  any dairy free yoghurt will do or apple sauce.
