2 large very-ripe All Good Fairtrade Bananas

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

1/2 cup light muscovado sugar (you could halve this amount for a lower-sugar option)

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground cardamom

1 teaspoon ground ginger

¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

4 eggs

2 ½ cups almond meal

½ cup spelt flour (or brown rice flour to make gluten free)

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

½ cup dark choc chips


Makes 10 slices

Preheat oven to fan bake 170 degrees Celsius.

Place the All Good Bananas, vanilla essence, sugar, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger and nutmeg into a food processor.

Blitz until smooth.

Add the remaining ingredients (except chocolate chips) and run for 1 minute.

Tip the batter into a bowl and stir through the chocolate chips.

Pour batter into a lined 23cm loaf tin.

Bake for 60 minutes until a skewer comes out clean when inserted.

Leave in the tin for 30 minutes before cooling on a baking rack.
