Ingredients
  • 3 mashed overripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice (I used unsweetened hemp milk)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups banana flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup raisins walnuts, shredded coconut or a mix of these
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9 x 5 pan with parchment paper (or grease, if you prefer).
  2. Combine bananas, carrots, sweetener, milk and vanilla in a medium-sized bowl; mix to combine.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix banana flour, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. Combine wet and dry ingredients and fold in add-ins (raisins, walnuts and/or shredded coconut). Smooth into prepared pan, and bake for 32-35 minutes, until top is slightly golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean.
  4. Let cool before enjoying.
