Nutri-Gastronomic Banana bread -no butter & no sugar
With this healthy banana bread recipe, you’re only a few simple ingredients away from the best banana bread ever! It’s made with extra virgin olive oil, whole wheat flour and naturally sweetened with healthy honey.
What I love about this recipe; You can easily make this banana bread vegan or gluten free by replacing milk with almond milk and flour with almond or oat flour.
6 tsp extra-virgin olive oil – I used ELY SÉIDE Délicatesse – it is just the best for baking - full of fruity flavour yet sound and buttery.
8 tsp honey or maple syrup
2 large mashed ripe bananas
4 tsp milk of choice or water (Not much really, just to give it a bit of moisture)
1 tsp baking soda ( not baking powder; they are not quite the same guys!)
½ tsp salt (You need that, to balance the flavours out)
A handful of pecan, walnuts or other nuts or ground cinnamon to drizzle on top.
200Gr regular whole wheat flour – prefer organic please (there is a lot going on with pesticides on regular wheat production !)
Preheat oven to 165 C ( 325F) and grease a loaf pan.
In a large bowl, Mix and beat all the ingredients together with the flour being last.
Pour everything into your oiled loaf pan and add (if you like) cinnamon, nuts ...
Bake for 50 minutes at 170 C ( 330F)
And that is it !
Serve when it has cooled off a bit as it will be easier to get the bread out of the loaf pan.
And important step here: ENJOY ! It is Healthy, Super delicious and Uber nutritious!
