Instructions
  1. Pre heat oven to 170 C/325 F
  2. Mix dry ingredients together.
  3. Mash bananas.
  4. Mix frozen blueberries and ½ tbsp coconut flour together gently (not smashing the berries).
  5. Combine mashed bananas and oat milk and mix well with a spoon. Add blueberries to the mixture folding gently.
  6. Mix dry ingredients to the wet ingredients gently, and pour the batter into a ~9x5" loaf pan (lined with parchment paper).
  7. Make the blueberry date paste by blending all ingredients in a food processor or blender.
  8. Slice banana coins or banana hearts as toppings.
  9. Swirl the paste on top of the bread and place banana slices on top.
  10. Bake ~50 min in lower rack of the oven.
  11. Take out of the oven and let cool for about 15 minutes.
  12. Make the coconut butter by blending all ingredients in a food processor.
  13. Cut the bread into slices, spread coconut butter generously on top of each slice and ENJOY the blueberry yumminess! You can even make a blueberry sandwich like the one in the first picture.
  14. Keep bread in a sealed container for up to five days. I usually freeze a few slices when the bread is fresh and heat them in the oven for ~5-10 minutes to make them as good as freshly baked again.
