Ingredients
  • 1 Banana Loaf, sliced and cut into cubes (4 cups of ¼ inch cubes)
  • 1 apple, peeled, seeded, and diced small
  • 1 tbsp. raisins (or mini chocolate chips if you aren't following strict-phase AIP)
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 4 dates, seeded and chopped (about ¼ cup)
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 tbsp. gelatin
  • 3 tbsp. water
Instructions
  1. Bake your Banana Bread early in the day or the day before. Allow it to cool completely before cutting into cubes.
  2. Lightly grease an 8x8 baking dish and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Add the coconut milk, honey, chopped dates, and pinch of salt to a sauce pan. Bring to a gentle simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a blender. Blend to incorporate dates.
  4. Place cubed banana bread, diced apple, and raisins in the baking dish. Stir to combine. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  5. Dissolve 1 tbsp. of gelatin in 1 tbsp. cold water in a small bowl. Then add 2 tbsp. of boiling water and beat vigorously until frothy. Add to coconut milk mixture in the blender and blend for a few seconds to thoroughly combine.
  6. Pour the coconut milk mixture over the cubed banana bread mixture in the baking dish. Place in the preheated oven. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and serve warm with whipped coconut topping and a pinch of cinnamon.
  8. NOTE: You can certainly use one fresh egg (if not following AIP) instead of the gelatin egg, but if doing so, allow the coconut milk to cool to room temperature before adding the egg.
