2 ripe bananas, mashed
¾ cup sorghum flour
¾ cup buckwheat flour
1/3 cup raw honey
¼ cup dairy-free milk
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp baking powder
1 extra banana, for topping
A handful of pepitas, for topping
Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Line a loaf tin with baking paper.
In a large bowl, mash the 2 ripe bananas. Add the flours, honey, eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla and baking powder. Mix until combined. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf tin.
Slice remaining banana and arrange banana slices on top of the batter. Sprinkle with pepitas.
Bake for around 20 minutes or until the loaf is golden on top and springs back when pressed lightly in the centre.
