This recipe reminds me of European Summer in Rome. ๐ŸŒž ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

I spent two weeks in July 2017 helping our friends to set up, open and run "The Wolffe Tree" bar/cafรฉ & "The Room Studio's" Art Gallery.

We made specialty coffee with siphons and v60 pour-overs from locally-roasted single-origin Kenyan beans.

We explored Rome, having adventures in "The Eternal City". Apart from visiting iconic sights such as The Colosseum and The Pantheon, we also enjoyed local markets, beaches, and districts.

We were blessed to have the cafรฉ as a home base, to be able to create value for the business in our own unique ways and to have a space in which to work on our own personal projects.

During this time, I completed writing a book about entrepreneurship and 'Building a Brand' - a ghost-writing job that I picked up freelancing online.

At night, I was invited to create in the kitchen. I love to cook healthy, nutritious vegan dishes, such as this gluten-free lasagna.

My banana bread was a huge hit in the cafรฉ - customers could not believe that it was actually good for them!

I love demonstrating that deliciously nourishing dishes can easily be made without sugar, gluten or eggs.

And without further ado, here is the promised recipe. ๐Ÿ˜„

(vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free)

INGREDIENTS

DRY:

  • 1.5 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • Pinch pink Himalayan salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Up to 1 cup of chopped walnuts or chopped dates as desired.

WET:

METHOD

Preheat fan-forced oven to 180 degrees celsius.

Prepare 1 โ€˜flax eggโ€™ by mixing 1 tablespoon of flaxmeal wth 3 tablespoons of water and letting it sit for 15 minutes.

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and wet ingredients in a blender. Mix together well.

Pour into a bread tin that has been greased with coconut oil. Top with sliced banana or chopped dates as you wish.

Bake for 35 minutes and then drop the temperature to 150 degrees celsius. Bake for another 40 minutes.

The bread is ready to take from the oven when it is no longer gooey in the center. To test this, insert a butter knife or a skewer into the middle of the loaf. It should come out clean when the bread is ready.

Let the loaf rest on a cooling rack for at least 20 minutes before slicing.
