A quick history of banana bread
This yummy bread has a clouded history and it is hard to pinpoint when it was invented. It is likely to have first been made in America in the 19th century when baking powder became readily available. Banana bread increased in popularity during the Great Depression in the 1930’s when it was used as an efficient way to use bananas that were going off. Since those days, there have been many new recipes that use lots of different ingredients and extras. Some of these include choc chips, dried fruit and nuts.
In search of a gluten free banana bread
We wanted to develop a recipe for gluten free banana bread. It needed to be a more nutritious version of its predecessor but still taste moist and flavoursome. Nice texture was also a must! By using teff flour and quinoa flour we believe we have set the foundations for a great tasting banana bread. However, you’ll also get much more protein and fibre than recipes that use other ingredients such as wheat flour.
Cooking with raw ingredients doesn’t need to be difficult as you’ll see from our recipe. It’s simply a case of throwing everything in a bowl and mixing. Simple!
