300 g very ripe bananas (the darker the better)
100 g apple, grated
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.
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.
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.
