Total time: 
  • ⅓ C coconut oil, melted
  • ½ C rice malt syrup
  • 2 T chia seeds + 6 T water
  • 4 medium-large bananas (still firm if you want the recipe to be low FODMAP)
  • 3 T almond milk (or dairy free milk of your choice)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp bicarb soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 ¾ C gluten free plain flour
  • 120g 70% dark chocolate (NB: if you need this to be dairy free, opt for a dairy free dark chocolate or Lindt 90% dark chocolate), cut into chunks
  1. - Sit chia seeds in a small bowl with the water, allow to set for 10 minutes
  2. Preheat oven to 160 C (fan forced), and line/grease a large loaf tin.
  3. In a large bowl, beat together the coconut oil, and rice malt syrup.
  4. Beat in the chia gloop.
  5. Mash 3 of the bananas with a fork, in a separate bowl, and then mix in the banana, almond milk, and vanilla.
  6. Sift in the bicarb soda, salt, cinnamon, and gf flour, and fold in gently with a spoon.
  7. Add the chocolate chunks and stir through.
  8. Pour the mixture into prepared tin.
  9. Slice the remaining banana in half, lengthways, and place on top.
  10. Sprinkle with an extra shake of cinnamon, and bake in the oven 50-60 mins, until golden brown, and the cake pulls ever so slightly from the sides.
  11. Remove once cooked through, allow to sit in the tin for 10 or so minutes, before transferring to a wire rack and sitting for another few minutes before slicing.
  12. Serve warm! (Or toast it later!)
