How to:
Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan/ gas mark 4. Grease and line a 21b loaf tin with baking parchment.
In a large bowl combine the bananas, eggs, pumpkin butter and grass-fed butter until you have a smooth batter. Add the coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla, and sea salt and mix well then pour into the prepared tin.
Mix the seeds, nuts, honey and vanilla until coated and drop on top of the batter.
Bake for 50-60 minutes until golden and a skewer when inserted into the middle comes away clean. Remove from oven and turn out onto a cooling rack and serve once cool. Really rather special with a slather of butter on top and a cup of good black tea!
