Notes

Serving Suggestions:
Serve warm, toasted or chilled.
Make It Personal:
To make this recipe a little extra sweeter, stir through chopped dates.
You can add chopped walnuts to the mixture.
Decorate the top of the batter with desiccated coconut or slices of banana.
Recipe Tips:
*Despite the name buckwheat does not contain wheat. It is a gluten free pseudocereal (cereal).
*Be careful not to over blend the banana and coconut oil as this may cause the loaf to become denser.
The riper the banana, the sweeter your bread will be.
