Ingredients

300 g very ripe bananas (the darker the better)

100 g apple, grated

2 eggs

100 g wholemeal wheat flour

100 g buckwheat flour

1 tsp ground cinnamon

16 g baking powder

50 g chopped walnuts

10 extra walnut halves for decoration

? If you don’t have apples, you can also use 100 g apple puree without any added sugar.

? If you don’t have walnuts, you can easily use almonds, hazelnuts, pecans etc.

? We are not using any butter for this recipe, so it is lower in calories than other banana bread.

 

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Core and finely grate the apple.

Mash the bananas with a fork so there are no chunks and add to the grated apple.

Add two eggs to the apple-banana mixture and beat until foamy with an electric hand mixer.

Mix the flour, baking powder and cinnamon and add to the banana-apple-egg mixture.

Mix everything briefly but well.

Finally, add the chopped walnuts, mix and pour everything into a loaf tin (with baking paper – PFAS-free).

Decorate with some walnut halves and press them into the dough.

Bake at 180°C for about 35 minutes. If the bread is not ready, keep it in the oven 5-10 minutes longer (test with a skewer or toothpick).

Let it cool down before cutting it.

? The bread stays fresh for a couple of days and tastes even better when it’s not fresh from the oven.

?If the bread is not sweet enough, you can add a bit of honey to the dough.

Why this banana bread is great for you

This banana bread is low in calories, especially compared to other banana bread made with butter, chocolate and sugar. It can help maintain a healthy weight. Being obese or overweight increases breast cancer in men and postmenopausal women.
