Banana Walnut Bread

The perfect use for old bananas is, I find, some banana walnut bread. I prefer mine with a bit of a bite to it and add in walnuts, but these can be omitted. Browned bananas can be frozen and then used later on for this recipe, I find bananas freeze well when left in the skin, just let them thaw before peeling.

Banana Bread: makes for one loaf
  • 3-4 bananas peeled and mushed up with 1 tsp. baking soda (set aside)

  • 120 gr brown sugar
  • 1 egg
-mix together the sugar and egg in a separate bowl until creamy, add in the following
  • 230 gr whole wheat flour, can also use pastry flour
  • 80 gr chopped walnuts, sunflower seeds, etc.
  • 3 tsp maple syrup, just to add some subtle flavours,
- mix all together including the banana mixture until combined

- place into a buttered rectangular loaf form
- I decorated mine with a line of walnuts down the middle
- bake in a pre heated oven at 180 degrees C for about 50 minutes or until the tester comes out clean
- allow to rest for a minute or so in the form and then gently pop out on to cool down properly

En guetä!
