Measure our dry ingredients flour, coconut sugar, baking soda, salt and baking powder in a separate bowl. Mixing to ensure that there are no lumps and its well incorporated.
In a separate bowl weigh out your banana and mash it up with a fork, a few chucks are ok it will give the bread texture, so don’t go crazy with the mashing. Place the same bowl with the banana back on the scales and measure the coconut oil, coconut water and vanilla essence in this bowl. Mix until just combined.
