INGREDIENTS
2eggs
1ripe banana
1 Tbspvinegar
11 Tbspwater
1/4 teasstevia powder (1/8 to 1/4 teas)
3 Tbspalmond butter (amount is only approximate)*
1/4 Cmolassas (amount is only approximate)
2/3 Cbuckwheat flour (do not pack down)
1/3 Calmond flour (or you can put 1/3 C almonds into the blender)
3/8 teasbaking soda
1/4 teasallspice
2 teasginger
1 teascinnamon
1/8 teascloves


STEPS
1. Butter 8 or 9 inch square baking dish.** Dust with flour. Put eggs, banana, vinegar, water, stevia powder, almond butter into blender. Do not blend yet.
2. Mix all the rest of the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl.
3. Now add molasses to blender and blend right away until uniform throughout. *** Add dry ingredients and blend a few seconds more until mixed. You might have to scrape sides. Immediately pour into buttered baking dish and steam (or you can bake) until toothpick comes out clean . Let sit in pan 5 minutes. Dump out of baking dish onto a high rack and let cool and dry for an hour. Wrap in wax paper or put back into baking dish, cover and refrigerate.
NOTES: *You can also use about 3 Tbsp of butter or about 2 Tbsp of any oil but you must bake or steam quickly or they will float to the top. (Actually once I did not have almond butter and I had forgotten oil and it worked fine too.)
**A 7 x 5 glass pyrex storage dish also works but the gingerbread grows higher than the sides of the dish.
***Otherwise the molasses sinks to the bottom and does not get blended in. Never put wheat flour into a blender. I sometimes use 1/3 cup buckwheat and 1/3 cup teff flour instead of 2/3 cups buckwheat and it works well.


This is the best buckwheat flour. Giant sells it.
or I prefer Wholesome.
