2 tablespoons liquid honey

In a large bowl mix the quinoa flour, quinoa flakes, baking powder, baking soda, cardamom, and salt until well combined.

In smaller bowl, mix the mash bananas, eggs and honey until fully combined.

Add banana mixture to the large bowl of dry ingredients and beat until combined and batter has a smooth consistency.

Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.

Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes until done. Watch it closely the last five minutes as you do not want it to over-brown.
