what you will need 

Flour- I used Self Raising Flour
Baking Powder
5 Over Ripe Bananas 
1 cup of Almonds
2 cups of Pecans
1/2 cup of Maple Syrup
3 Tablespoons of Chia Seed
2 tablespoons of Cinnamon.

I recently followed a Banana Loaf recipe from the Deliciously Ella webiste, I made a few tweeks because I either didn't have something or I left out Cinnamon because I really don't like it.

preheat oven to 145c

Blend together the almonds and pecans, I didn't have any pecans so just used Almonds and this was fine, blend till it resembles a flour.
Mix this together with the flour, maple syrup, chia seed and cinnamon, as I said I left out cinnamon

Next mash up the bananas until smooth, stir them into the flour mix. This should be really nice and sticky. 

Grease a loaf tin with coconut oil, you could use normal oil or butter if you don't have coconut oil.

Bake for about an hour, until it's golden. 

I found this recipe super easy to follow and the loaf tasted amazing! 
The Chia seed made the loaf nice and crunchy.
I'd make it again, it's a great way to use up overripe bananas
