Banana, Date & Coconut Loaf

I was having coffee with a friend the other day & noticed this delicious looking loaf in the coffee shop cabinet… instead of buying a piece I was determined to go home and make my own version! So here we have my creation of a yummy and wholesome banana, date and coconut loaf that is gluten and dairy free! Hope you enjoy it!

  2. Roughly chop dates and soak them in a small bowl of hot water whilst you prepare the other ingredients

  4. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl – buckwheat flour, almond meal, cinnamon, baking powder, coconut flakes and salt
