  1. Preheat the oven to 375F/190C and line a 9″ x 5″ / 23cm x 13cm loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare chia/flax eggs by mixing together ground chia seeds or ground flax seeds with six tablespoons of water in a small bowl or mug. Allow to thicken for five minutes.
  3. Add oat flour, almond flour, 1/2 cup walnuts, organic cane sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt to a large bowl, stir to combine.
  4. To the dry ingredients, add chia/flax eggs, mashed bananas, almond butter, apple cider vinegar and vanilla extract, mix well to combine. Pour batter into prepared loaf tin and decorate with sliced banana and walnuts.
  5. Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the bread comes out clean. Allow to cool in the loaf pan for 15 minutes, then carefully transfer the banana bread to a cooling rack.
  6. Once the banana bread is cool, cut into 10 slices and enjoy! Store slices in an airtight container for 3 days.
