How to Make:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Lightly grease a 7cm-deep, 11 x 21cm loaf pan. Line the base and sides with baking paper, allowing the paper to overhang over the 2 long sides.
  2. Whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and cinnamon in a bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the maple syrup, almond milk, oil, water and vanilla. Stir until just combined. Stir in the mashed banana. Transfer mixture to the prepared pan.
  3. Bake the banana bread for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve drizzled with extra maple syrup and sprinkled with cacao nibs, if you like.
