How to make this healthy banana blueberry crumb loaf.
This healthy banana crumb bread is super easy to make. You seriously do not need to be a professional baker or cook by any means. It’s so easy that you could most likely do it with your eyes closed. I promise. Here, I’ll walk you through the steps.
First, preheat your oven.
Next, line and grease a bread tin by cutting a little piece of parchment paper, placing it into the bottom of the pan, and spraying it with nonstick spray. This will male it so easy to take your blueberry banana bread out of the dish.
Next, in a small bowl, whisk the egg with a fork.
And, in a large bowl, mash bananas with a fork. They should be completely mushy and have no chunks.
Once the bananas are mashed, add in the whisked egg, vanilla extract, maple syrup, yogurt, and melted coconut oil to the large bowl. To melt your coconut oil, just place a little into a microwave-safe bowl and heat on 20-second intervals until melted. Then measure the desired amount and pour it into the bowl.
Next, you’ll make your homemade oat flour with rolled oat! In a blender, add your rolled oats and completely blend until a flour-like consistency. This trick not only comes in super handy for baking but saves you a ton of money!
Now, whisk in the almond flour, homemade oat flour, coconut sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda to the large bowl until fully combined. Next, fold in your fresh blueberries by hand with a spatula and pour the batter into the lined bread tin.
In a small bowl, add all crumb topping ingredients and combine them. It should be a sand texture. Now, generously sprinkle this mixture on top of the loaf and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
And voila! Easy, healthy blueberry banana bread that’s made with almond flour and other wholesome ingredients. It’s perfect for breakfast, an afternoon snack, or a post-dinner dessert!
