How to make Healthy Banana Bread (Gluten-free)

1. Pre-heat your oven to 180oC/350oF/Gas 4 and line a 1lb loaf tin with baking parchment or greaseproof paper.

2. Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan and place the almonds, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in your blender or food processor and mix well. Add the eggs, one at a time and then pour in the melted coconut oil. Pulse in your processor until fully mixed.

3. Chop in the bananas, add the desiccated coconut and crystallised ginger. Pulse gently until mixed.

4. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf tin.
