I made Paleo Banana Coffee Cake with Paleo Cream Frosting (as an after dinner treat while over on the island) and I made Banana Berry Bar.  I’ll use the bars as my pre-run breakfast.  It’s perfect for pre-run fuel!

Paleo Banana Coffee Cake

3 mashed over-ripe bananas

1 ½ cups almond flour

½ cup tapioca flour

1 tablespoon vanilla

1/3 cup strong cold espresso

1 tablespoon macadamia oil (or coconut oil)

½ cup roughly chopped walnuts

3 eggs, separated

How to:

Pre-heat the oven to a moderate heat.  Place the bananas in a large bowl and mash.  Add almond flour, tapioca, vanilla, espresso, oil, walnuts and egg yolks and mix well.  In a separate bowl whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form (about 1 minute) and then fold into the cake mixture.  Spoon the mixture into a lined cake tin, or muffin cases and place in the oven for 35-45 minutes.

Paleo Cream Frosting

1 cup of cashews (soaked in water for up 2 hours, this helps ‘cream’ the nut in blending)

3 tablespoons of organic honey

juice of 1 lemon

1/3 cup coconut oil

1 teaspoon vanilla

How to:

Drain and rinse the cashews.  Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.

Banana Berry Bar (makes 1 bar)

1 mashed banana

¼ cup of berries

1 egg

How to:

I use the mini loaf pan for this; they are the littlest ones I could find in the home ware store.

Pre-heat the oven to a moderate heat.  Mash the banana and add in the egg.  Mix well.  Add the berries and pour into the loaf pan.  Place in the oven and cook for 25-30 minutes (or until a tooth pick inserted in the centre comes out clean).

I had some gift vouchers for Home Wares (from my birthday) and I went shopping today.  I love kitchen gadgets! I brought an awesome new cooking pan and this little container-chopper-thing that is super awesome for chopping ‘things’ (as the description would suggest).  Just pop your ‘things’ in, twist the lid on the top and…hey presto the ‘things’ are chopped.
