Or lightly toasting a day old loaf until the edges and crust are a golden brown, still crisp on the top with a crunch, yet spongy and chewy within? Ahhh… the simple pleasures of a baker.

3 Ripe bananas2 cups of Almond meal1 Free-range Egg1/4 cup Agave syrup or rice malt1 Vanilla pod1/4 cup Coconut oil1/3 cup Almond milk1 tsp Coconut sugarSqueeze of lemonGood shake of cinnamonHandful of chia seeds


Preheat oven to 170 C.

1. Place coconut sugar on a plate, slice bananas and roll them in the sugar. In a fry pan on medium heat, cook bananas in organic butter or coconut oil until caramelized and soft. This will give the bread an extra boost of flavor and caramel tones.2. Smash bananas in a bowl with a fork or potato masher, add coconut oil, agave, lemon, egg, vanilla, and cinnamon, and mix.

3. Add chia seeds and almond meal and combine.

4. Line loaf tray with baking paper or lightly oil, spoon batter in and sprinkle chia seeds on top. Cover the loaf with foil and bake for about 45 minutes, remove foil and bake for a further 15 minutes to brown off the bread.

With many people renovating their existing properties rather than opting to move, a staircase which takes up less space for accessing new levels or rooms has never been a more popular feature. A spiral staircase can take up nearly half the room of a conventional straight flight staircase, whilst still providing a convenient means of ascent.

So, I am a TAD bit excited about this project! It is definitely one of my new favorites. I am going to show you how to make a Christmas reindeer with a few branches from a tree. It's quick, easy and seriously adorable. We chose to make a Rudolph, complete with a red nose, but that is optional. We hope to add one or more a year so that we eventually have Santa's entire reindeer crew.
