75 g unsalted butter, melted, plus extra to serve (optional)
4 bananas, peeled
20 g extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp vanilla bean paste
160 g coconut palm sugar
1 pinch pink sea salt flakes or ½ pinch sea salt flakes (to taste)
1 pinch freshly grated whole nutmeg
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp baking powder
150 g milk chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips
130 g nuts of choice, such as pecans or walnut kernels
200 g plain baker's flour
- Preheat oven to 175ºC. Melt butter either in a microwave or stovetop and cool slightly.
- Place melted butter, bananas, oil, eggs, vanilla, sugar, salt, nutmeg, bicarb soda and baking powder into Thermomix bowl and blend 10 sec/speed 8. Add remaining ingredients and combine 12 sec/Interval. Finish combining with a spatula.
Pour into ungreased 12cm x 28cm loaf tin and cook for 50-60 minutes until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
- Leave to cool in tin for as long as you can resist, before turning out and slicing into thick slices to serve with slabs of butter, or without – delicious either way!
