I have this weird tendency to skip my (very important) morning self care routine when the weekend hits. It's the oddest thing. I've worked diligently to get to a place where my mornings are totally sacred to me - I do light yoga, meditate, read my personal development book with coffee and don't touch my phone until 8am. It makes me a better person and gives me control over my days. But for whatever reason, Saturday morning hits and I'm all "I WANNA BAKE THINGS, SCREW THE ROUTINE!" and so that's basically why you're getting this recipe and why I named it appropriately. Or inappropriately. I'm not sure. You can make this anytime. But it tastes extra delish on Saturday mornings. Probably.
Isn't it magical looking? And I promise it tastes even BETTER than it looks!
1/2 cup coconut yogurt (you can also use greek yogurt if you can do dairy)
2 medium, ripe bananas
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup oat flour**
1 1/4 cup quick oats
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup walnut crumbs
**(If you don't have oat flour on hand, simply put 1 cup quick oats in food processor and pulsate until you have flour. You can also do this with nuts!)
1) Preheat oven to 350. Grease your favourite loaf pan or glass baking dish with coconut oil.
2) Beat eggs in large mixing bowl, and add in yogurt, bananas, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Mash bananas and mix well until smooth.
3) Stir in the oat flour, oats, baking soda, walnuts and cinnamon. Mix well.
4) Pour mixture into pan, sprinkle lightly with cinnamon, and bake for 40-50 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit in pan for 5-10 minutes before removing loaf and letting cool on wire rack. 5) Slice, top with butter (optional) and enjoy!
And just for your viewing pleasure, here's what it looks like when it's fresh from the oven (just before I devoured it!)
