– 2 cups wholegrain flour
– 1/2 cup 100% cocoa powder
– 1 tsp baking powder
– 1/2 cup raw cane sugar
– 2 ripe bananas (mashed)
– 1/4 cup raisins
– 1/4 cup chopped almonds
– 1/2 cup vegan margarine (i.e. plant-based margarine)
– 1 tsp almond extract / vanilla essence
No big deal to this at all. Put all the ingredients in a large bowl and give it a good mix.
Pour into a loaf tin lined with greaseproof paper and top with a few chopped almonds to make it look all rustic and home-made.
Bake in a pre-heated oven (gas mark 6) for 20-25 min. Insert a cocktail stick to check if it’s cooked all the way through. If it comes out clean then you’re good to go.
Leave to cool for about an hour before cutting into thick slices.
