On Saturday morning, I thought of baking banana bread. My husband loves it, it’s fairly easy to make and it’s healthy too. Most importantly I had all the ingredients in my kitchen! There are so many recipes available online. But I have changed mine up a little bit to use whole wheat flour, no butter and less sugar. Here it is…
2 ripe bananas, smashed
1/3 cup oil
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour (or 1 cup whole wheat and 1/2 cup all-purpose flour)
You can add one more banana and use only 1/2 cup sugar
You don’t need a mixer for this recipe. Pre-heat the oven to 350°F. Mash bananas in a large mixing bowl using a wooden spoon. Mix in the sugar, egg, oil and vanilla. Add the baking soda to the flour. Now add the flour to the wet mix and combine. Pour mixture into a loaf pan which has been prepped. Bake for about 45 mins to an hour. You will know that it’s done when you poke a knife into your loaf and it comes out clean. Cool on a rack, and then it’s ready to serve.
Enjoy, and let me know if you try it!!
