Gluten, dairy, sugar free, paleo banana bread…

After posting this photo on Instagram of our morning coffees and delicious homemade banana bread quite a few of you were interested in the recipe. I have to say, my brother makes a pretty mean banana bread and also happens to be an awesome Kinesiologist.

Anywho, here’s the recipe…

2 cups almond meal
3 eggs
6 very ripe bananas
1 peeled and de-pipped orange
40ml macadamia oil
20ml extra virgin coconut oil
1 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
Cinnamon
Nutmeg
Salt
Vanilla bean
Chia seeds

In a blender mix:
3 bananas
3 eggs
1 peeled and de-pipped orange
40ml macadamia oil
20ml extra virgin coconut oil
Cinnamon
Nutmeg
Salt
Vanilla bean
Chia seeds

In a large bowl, combine almond meal, bicarb and chunks of 2 bananas with the batter from the blender. Mix gently but well.

Line a bread tin or use coconut oil and almond meal on the sides to prevent sticking. Pour batter from mixing bowl in to tin. Slice remaining bananas and place on top.

Bake in oven at 165 for 45-60 minutes, depending on oven.

Enjoy!

Vintage store profile: Sing Blackbird

Sing Blackbird is one of those places you walk into and feel instantly relaxed, inspired and at home. In fact, you’d never know that the space used to be used as a phone-sex centre!

With Tame Impala’s Innerspeaker on the stereo, I wandered around the three rooms of carefully edited men’s and women’s vintage clothing, shoes and accessories from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. This store definitely makes sure you don’t have that daunting feeling you can have when walking into some vintage stores (i.e. “where the hell do I start?!”). It is beautifully put together, so even if you’re not looking to buy vintage it’s still a fantastic store to look through.

Sing Blackbird also runs vintage and second hand flea markets, hosts movie nights and serves bloody marys Friday – Sunday.

If you don’t want to leave just yet (I didn’t want to in a hurry) you can sit in the Sing Blackbird cafe which is attached to the shop and sample locally produced coffee, home made cakes and vegetarian delights. Here you can sit and watch the world go by, or read any of the zines and books by local artists and writers.

This is not just any vintage store, and an absolute must-do if you’re heading to Berlin.
