Banana Loaf

1 Pre-heat oven to 350ºF (not fan forced).

2 Combine the wet ingredients together in one bowl. In another, combine the dry ingredients.
Then mix the two together into a batter. Slowly fold the walnuts through.

3 Line a 9 x 5 inch rectangular loaf tin with parchment paper, lightly oil the base and sides (with coconut oil) and pour the mixture in. Slice the remaining banana down the middle and place on top of the mixture.

4 Bake for 45 mins at 350º F. It’s ready when it feels bouncy to touch. Let it cool once you’ve taken it out of the oven as it will continue to cook.

Note: Best kept in the fridge for up to 1 week, or you can freeze it and heat it up as you go.

Caramelized Figs Directions

1 Preheat a non-stick pan over medium heat.

2 Toss the figs in the coconut oil and sprinkle with coconut sugar.

3 Place the figs in the pan, cut side down. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden. 
Remove the pan from the heat and let it stand for 2 minutes.

4 To serve, slice the Banana Loaf as desired and generously 
spread with COYO; then top with the figs, a drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of Cinnamon.
