Ginger Cardamom Blackberry Pistachio Banana Bread



2 cups oat flour or flour of choice

1/4 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp cardamom

1/3 cup crushed pistachios


4 overly ripe bananas

1/2 cup melted plant butter or oil of choice

Flax egg (2 TBSP flax meal 7 TBSP water)

2 tsp apple cider vinegar

2 TBSP freshly grated ginger

1 cup blackberries (1/2 cup mushed 1/2 cup whole)

*optional 1/2 cup sourdough starter*

Preparing the Banana Bread:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Gather two medium sized mixing bowls and one small bowl. In the small bowl create your flax egg by adding 2 TBSP of flax meal and 7 TBSP of water. Set aside so it can be come gelatinous. To a medium sized bowl add all dry ingredients except for the crushed pistachios and combine. To the second medium bowl add the overly ripe bananas. They should be extremely spotted or basically brown. Mash for about 3-5 minutes until they have turned into mush with minimal lumps. Add all of the remaining wet ingredients to the mashed bananas except for the blackberries. Throughly combine everything together. Next, slowly incorporate the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Make sure everything is mixed and there are no dry clumps of flour. Next take 1/2 cup of the blackberries and smash with a fork. Add smashed blackberries, whole blackberries, and pistachios. Mix until incorporated throughout.

Baking the Banana Bread:

Grease a bread pan with desired oil. Pour banana bread mixture into the bread pan. Sprinkle top with extra cardamom, sugar, and decorate with fruit and nuts if you wish. Place in oven for 55-60 minutes at 350 degrees. After 50 minutes has passed poke with toothpick to check if bread if cooked through. After 60 minutes maximum take bread out and let cool in bread pan. I recommend taking the bread out at around 50-55 minutes. Though you may not think it is completely done the bread will continue to bake and set while it is cooling after being taken out of the oven. Once the bread has somewhat cooled transfer to a cooling rack. Place the bread on its side and let it finish cooling. It is important to let bread cool completely before slicing so it does not fall apart. Slice and enjoy!
