Spiced Banana Bread
⅔ cup dates (90 g)
¼ cup almond milk (or any non-dairy milk)
1 cup ground almonds (100 g) *
1 cup oats (80 g)
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp cardamom
2 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp salt
* if you do not have ground almonds, simply use a blender, foodprocessor or similar to ground whole almonds. The consistency should be very similar to regular flour.
Soak the dates in water for 5-10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
Ground the oats using a blender, foodprocessor or similar until it gets a flour-like consistency. Mix the oats with grounded almonds, baking powder, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
Drain the dates and mash them together with the bananas using the back of a fork. Mix the mashed dates and bananas with the almond milk before adding them to the dry ingredients. Mix everything well together.
Align a loaf pan with parchment paper and pour the batter into it. Spread it out evenly and bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothstick comes out clean of the middle. Allow to cool down before serving.
Store in airtight container.
