WHAT YOU NEED finely mashed ripe bananas packed light brown sugar maple syrup mild oil large eggs pure vanilla extract full fat coconut milk gluten free flour old fashioned rolled oats baking powder baking soda salt cinnamon yellow banana (for decorating) chocolate chips (optional)
1. Add the oats to a food processor and blend until finely or loosely ground. Then measure to make sure you have 1/2 cup. Mix this into a bowl of flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
2. Whisk together the sugar, maple syrup, oil, eggs, vanilla, and coconut cream. Once smooth, mix in the banana. 3. Fold in the dry ingredients and mix in chocolate chips (if using).
4. Pour the batter into the prepped pan. Peel and slice your extra yellow banana length wise and lay the slices cut side up on top of the batter.
5. Bake until the top is completely golden brown, the center is puffed up, and a toothpick comes out clean. 6. Allow the banana bread to cool in the pan for 30 minutes. Lift it out of the pan and allow it to cool for another 30 minutes before slicing.
