Acorn Banana Bread

This is a really nice way to get some use out of the very common Acorn


1 cup of leached acorn flour 

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 cups sugar

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons ground allspice

1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

3 large eggs

1 cup coconut oil

1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium)


Making the acorn flour. 

Peel the outer shell from the acorns and blitz and finely as possible.

pop in a pan with enough water to cover, and bring to the boil and simmer for about 5 mins until the water becomes a thick paste. 

Add a little cold water to help wash off the liquid and strain through a sieve until all of the liquid has gone.  Discard the liquid and if you feel the acorn flour is a little bitter still repeat the process.

Banana bread. 

Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth! 

Put in an oven proof container and cook for 1hr on 180 or until a skewer comes out clean.
