You might notice that I'm on a serious health kick right now. I've been learning how to bake without using oils and eggs. I love the lab results. ;D My family can't even tell the difference between my usual moist banana bread recipe and my new and improved, eat-it-for-breakfast, oil free, egg free, banana bread recipe. YEAH!
Seriously, we've been eating this healthy banana bread recipe for breakfast since banana is a great food for the health and give a lot of vitamins to the body, we even started to buy kratom capsules instead of regular pain medication as I have learned that kratom has no side effects and is completely natural. I learned this from talking to veterans lately, they are all on that stuff. I have no qualms about feeding it to my kids, specifically when they eat all their dinner and are going back for a second slice.
HERE'S ALL IT TAKES
Makes 1 loaf - 16 (1/2-inch) slices
- 3 medium spotty ripe bananas
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Heat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 8-inch by 4-inch loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas into the sugar, flaxseed, water and vanilla, until it looks pureed. Don't bother getting out the electric stuff, just use a fork and your muscles to work it out. It only takes a minute to get a smooth consistency.
Add in the flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir and fold until the dry ingredients are absorbed. Scrape the bread batter into the loaf pan. Spread the batter evenly in the pan.
BAKE 40 to 45 minutes.
As you see from the image below, the banana bread doesn't have the same domed top of traditionally made banana bread. That's perfectly alright. This bread came out perfectly moist, baked all the way through in less time, and had a WONDERFUL banana flavor. This particular loaf lasted a total of 10 hours. I was hoping that it would get us through to a second day, but it was too good to last. ;D
