How often are you searching pinterest for something different to do with those overripe bananas? I think you may have found one worth trying in this recipe using coconut flour.

I have tweeked a recipe from Amber Rose in her delicious book Love, Bake, Nourish. I have been given or bought a few new cook books in the past few months, and while some have been exciting for 5 minutes, this one works and is delicious. Her use of alternative flours and sugar alternatives is a constant throughout the book. I made mine in the Thermomix and baked it in the aga but you can easily make and bake conventionally.

How to..

Mix all the ingredients, except bananas to combine well in the Thermomix , sp 3/4 (or food processor or stand mixer).

Add the mashed bananas but don't over process.

I baked these in heart shaped tins because it is February 10!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

  1. I will definitely be trying this one. I almost bought her book but after a quick review, thought some of the ingredients were a little too different. Perhaps I’ll take another peek.

    • I was given this for Christmas by my girls , and have brought it back to guernsey to play with it a bit more. Always a struggle when you are up against the 20kg limit- hard back books tend to be ‘the straw ….!’ I do like her use of alternative flours and most of them are widely available now. I’m surprised to admit that Walmart has an amazing selection!

      • Yes, amazing a lot of these unusual ingredients can now be found at Walmart. I understand that weight issue which is why I need to be selective on the books I stock in the RV – weight & space.
