Banana bread has been one of the big winners of lockdown, with millions of people across the country baking this fruity treat. If you can’t find flour, you can still make this isolation staple by swapping normal self-raising for almond flour. You’ll also need to add a little baking powder to help the bread achieve a good rise and a tantalising structure. Throw in some cinnamon and vanilla extract to make your flour-free banana bread even tastier.
