250g plain flour

75g light brown sugar

75g white sugar

1½ tbsp cocoa powder

½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

½ tsp salt

½ tsp ground allspice

110g dairy-free butter

3 ripe bananas

60ml almond milk

2 tbsp maple syrup

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

1 tsp vanilla extract

60g dark chocolate

50g pecans

Preheat oven to 170C fan (190C/gas 5) | Line a 1kg loaf tin with parchment paper | Food processor

  • Pour all the ingredients except the dark chocolate and pecans into the food processor and whiz them to a thick mixture. Take out the blade and scrape any excess mixture back into the bowl.
  • Break the dark chocolate and pecans into small pieces and tip them into the bowl. Mix everything together.
  • Pour the mixture into the lined loaf tin and put it in the oven. Bake for 60-65 minutes, or until a skewer inserted at the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Take the tin out of the oven and leave the bread to cool to room temperature. Remove the loaf from the tin and cut it into slices to serve.
