bananas, bananas and cinnamon banana bread

after not feeling well last week, it's really taken me a long time to recover. although i still don't feel back to my peak energy level, i am feeling brighter and more chirpy! i've even had the chance to cross a few recipes off my 2010 recipes list (more on that to come), but for now i leave you with an ode to bananas - oh how i could not live without them:

cinnamon banana bread - really good, and the perfect freezer snack if you batch bake it, slice it up and pop it in your freezer compartment.

it's a pretty simple recipe too:
 - melt 50g butter with 100g honey
 - mix together 350g flour (100g ground almonds, 100g spelt flour, 150g whole wheat). a pinch of salt, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1tsp baking powder
 - add the melted butter and honey to the dry ingredients
 - also add 130ml soya milk, 1tsp vanilla extract and 1 beaten egg
 - place in the oven until golden on top and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean (about 45minutes at 180c fan)
 - enjoy sliced and toasted with a light spread of butter and a hot cup of tea

bananas make the perfect topping to this week's apple spelt pancakes

banana sliced onto yogurt with raisins, goji berries, linseeds and a drizzle of agave nectar - a perfect dessert or afternoon snack

buckwheat porridge would not be as delicious without it's banana topping

plain sliced bananas with raisins, raw honey and sliced almonds...mmm, isn't nature marvellous?!
