Blueberry and Buckwheat Loaf with a Touch of Lemon

Ok so we think that buying banana bread is the healthier option right? Yeah me thinks NOT!!! Banana bread is pretty much banana cake pretending to be bread, all that sugar, butter and flour will not help your waistline believe me!! However if you are looking for a yummy guilt free alternative for a treat breakfast, well my dear look no further. This creation hits all those comforting needs we search for in a treat breakfast and it actually isn't bad for you at all, It's high in protein, fibre, good fats and most importantly yumminess, so treat yourself to a freshly baked slice of this perfection xx

Ingredients

2 bananas mashed

3/4 cup buckwheat flour

1/2 cup almond meal

3 eggs lightly beaten

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1/4 cup maple syrup or raw honey

1 tsp vanilla bean paste

1 tsp cinnamon powder

1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)

1/4 cup sunflower seeds (for a little crunch and texture)

juice of 1/2 lemon and zest

8 drops of pure lemon oil (food grade I use Doterra oils)

Directions

Pre heat oven to 180 degrees, lightly spray a loaf tin with coconut oil or use a silicon loaf tray, Ina large mixing bowl mash the bananas well add the beaten eggs, vanilla, coconut oil, maple syrup and lemon juice, zest and oil and mix until well combined, add the blueberries and sunflower seeds and mix again, add the remaining ingredients and mix until it all forms a well combined thick batter, pour the better into the loaf tin and place in the oven, cook for approx 30mins or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted in the middle of the loaf, place on a cooling rack to cool slice and enjoy, totally yummm xx
