Who doesn’t love a nice, moist banana bread? I make this one often. It’s super healthy thanks to the whole wheat flour and has zero sugar: the sweetness all comes from the dates and bananas, which also ensure this loaf never dries out. Personally, I love this a bit warm, with a touch of strawberry jam or Nutella. Yum!
Ingredients to make your lovely healthy banana bread :
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 2 cups mashed banana (approximately 6 bananas)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 cup finely chopped dates
- 2 tbsp flax seed powder
- 6 tbsp water
- 1-2 tbsp sesame seeds
Pre-heat the oven at 150 degree Celsius. Mix flax seed powder with water, stir well and leave it aside till gooey. Mash the banana well.
In a big bowl add the flour with baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and mix well. now add the chopped dates and stir together. Add the mashed banana and flax seed powder mixed with water and stir till it’s combined. It’ll be a hard dough but don’t be tempted to add any more water. do not over mix. Just stir till it forms a hard dough.
Fold this into a greased loaf pan and sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
Bake for 50 to 60 mins till it’s well risen, crusty and golden on the outside. A toothpick inserted right in the center has to come out clean and that’s when the loaf is cooked.
Let the bread cool down completely. It’ll be sticky and hard to cut into when it’s still hot.
