This is so easy and yummy!
PREP:  5 minutes     COOK:  40 minutes
Gluten free and dairy free


Coconut oil or spray for preparing baking pan

1 medium to large ripe banana, peeled and mashed

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 1/2 cups gluten-free oat flour  (you can also grind oats in your food processor for about a minute or until you get it to flour consistency)

1/2 cup almond flour

2 Tbsp. ground flaxseeds

6 Tbsp. of water

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk  (can be vanilla)

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1/2 cup pure maple syrup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a loaf baking dish with coconut oil or spray.

Combine flax and water and set aside for 10 minutes or until thick then mix well. In a large bowl, mash the banana; add in the remaining ingredients including the flaxseed mixture, and mix until smooth.  I like to use an immersion blender.

Transfer the mixture to the prepared loaf pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Remove from the oven; set aside to cool for about 15-20 minutes before serving.
