This is a simple, yet very nutritious and versatile dish that is fabulous as an after-school snack, for eating on the go, or even as a desert.
It is sugar, gluten, dairy and egg free and can also be made in bulk, as you can keep it in the fridge the whole week!
Preparation time: 45 min (10 min for preparation, 35 min in the oven)
Ingredients for 1 small tray of Almond Bread:
- 100g of ground almonds
- 100g of oats
- 4 medium bananas
- 1/3 cup of chia seeds
- 1/2 cup of flax seeds
- 2 handfuls of raisins
- 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk
- 1 ½ teaspoons of cinnamon
- 2 handfuls of frozen berries (optional)
- Olive oil
How to make it:
Mash bananas with a fork and add in ground almonds, oats, flaxseed, raisins, cinnamon and berries. Mix well.
Put chia seeds in a cup (1/3) and fill the rest of the cup with water. Stir well with a fork and let the chia seeds soak in water for 5 min.
Stir the soaked chia seeds again and add them to the dry mix. Pour in also the almond milk and stir until all ingredients are well combined. If you feel that the mix is too dry, you can add in some extra almond milk.
Put the mixture in a greased baking dish. Bake on 175 C for 30-35 min, cool down and serve.
