Easy and healthy gluten free banana bread with hazelnuts

Right now I’m sitting in my bed after another wonderful weekend with the musical team. I finally feel that we’ve really kicked off the rehearsals for the show of the year – Gummi Tarzan, freely adapted from a childrens story written by an in Denmark famous author, Ole Lund Kirkegård. The people on the team are seriously the best in the world. We always end the practice weekends by showing and filming everything we’ve learned so right now I’m just waiting for the movie to come up on Facebook. Especially the one with the dance where we do stunts and everything (;


Jeg er netop hjemvendt efter en fantastisk dejlig weekend med musicalholdet. SÅ er vi for alvor i gang med dette års musical – Gummi Tarzan, frit efter Ole Lund Kirkegårds skønne historie. Og det er så skønt at være med igen i år. De mennesker, der er på holdet, er bare nogle af de sødeste i verdenen. Vi slutter altid vores øveweekender med at vise og filme alt hvad vi har lært så lige nu sidder jeg spændt og venter på at filmene – specielt en dans, vi har øvet meget på, som inkluderer stunts og det hele (;

From musical to banana bread. I feel like the internet is exploding with recipes on banana bread lately. I love that trend. The other day I made this lovely loaf my the talented Renee Kemps. SO delicious. And check out this delicious-looking banana bread by The Yooper Girl. They all look good, but I felt like every good blog should have a recipe on banana bread. And I love experimenting with new recipes, so I had to make a recipe myself.

It turned out great. Definitely my new go-to-banana-bread.


Og nu til bananbrød. Jeg synes internettet pludselig er blevet sprængfyldt med opskrifter på bananbrød. Og jeg er helt vild med det. De er alle sammen så lækre. Forleden lavede jeg dette skønne brød af den meget talentfulde blogger Renee Kemps. SÅ lækkert. Og det her brød af Leigha ser simpelthen også bare smadder godt ud. Men det virker som om at enhver madblog med respekt for sig selv har en opskrift på bananbrød. Og jeg elsker at eksperimentere med mine egne opskrifter, så jeg måtte lave en opskrift selv.

Det blev så lækkert. Helt sikkert mit nye go-to-bananbrød.

I’m starting working on a big project in school tomorrow, so I don’t think I’ll have that much time for blogging the next couple of weeks. But I have a wonderful surprise for you soon. I’m so exited.


Jeg er lige nu i gang med SRP (den store opgave, man skriver i 3.G), så jeg vil måske være lidt fraværende de næste par uger – men jeg har en dejlig overraskelse gemt i ærmet. Of jeg glæder mig til at vise den!

  4. I think I have to recreate it in the next days, looks very good! I hate all those brown, half-hard, over-baked banana breads, yours looks so soft! <3

  5. I saw this banana bread on insta and thought how amazingly delicious it looked! Love the hazelnuts, so good! I will definitely be making this very soon!

  6. Yum, I love that you have made grain free banana bread! And the hazelnuts would make such a yummy addition. I think I will have to bake it soon for my breakfast, I think it would make a nice and healthy breakfast loaf that would be delicious spread with some whipped coconut cream.
    Your musical sounds so much fun, it sounds as though you have a lovely group of people there :)
