Banana Bread My Way (serves 8)

recipe photo 21Banana Bread My Way (serves 8)

I always think I am taking the healthy option having banana bread. For one thing it is called banana bread, not banana cake
Then it has bananas in it not chocolate. However, I am only pulling wool over my own eyes! Still, it is a sweet treat that I can have. Banana Bread My Way is literally that, so it was a little trial and error. Almond Flour replaces flour, canola oil replaces butter. I reduced the amount of sugar as much as I could and I added chopped walnuts too. It is so easy to make. You just need one big bowl and everything gets mixed in. I mashed my bananas effectively with a potato masher. Mixture was cooked in an aluminum rectangular cake tin (8″ x 4″) greased with canola oil. Aim to cook for an hour or so (mine took longer) but check during that time. I checked half way through and because I didn’t want it to get too brown, I put a piece of aluminum foil on top. Put a toothpick or skewer into middle of cake to check for doneness (should come out clean).

3 ripe bananas
2 extra large eggs (3 regular sized) – whisk in a small bowl
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/3 cup of canola oil
1/2 cup of sugar
Pinch of salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla essence
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Place the bananas in a large bowl and mash with a potato masher.
Add whisked eggs and mix well.
Then stir in almond flour followed by canola oil and sugar.
Then stir in salt, baking powder and vanilla essence.
Lastly, stir in the chopped walnuts.
