There is nothing bad about this recipe. Its super quick, seriously easy and you can eat it without feeling the tiniest bit guilty! At 104 calories a slice, well more like a wedge, and only 1.6g of fat this is the perfect naughty but nice treat. This is my basic healthy banana bread recipe so why not try adding your own extras such as; cocao nibs, chopped nuts, peanut butter or even extra fruits.
Whether you choose to toast it or eat it as it is, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Toasted and smothered in peanut butter… oh my
Ingredients (makes a 1lb loaf)
120g wholegrain Spelt flour
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 + ½ large free range eggs
2 tbsp agave syrup
75g low/non fat natural yoghurt
1 + ½ medium-large very ripe (almost black) bananas
Preheat the oven to 170°C an grease/line a 1lb loaf tin. Personally I prefer to use a silicone loaf tin as no prep. is required.
In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, bicarb, cinnamon and salt.
In a separate bowl, mash your bananas with a potato masher then mix in the eggs, syrup and yoghurt until combined.
Now pour the wet ingredients into the dry and quickly mix together.
Transfer the mixture to the loaf tin and level the top. Bake for 35-40 mins until the top is lightly browned and a knife through the centre comes out clean.
Leave to cool before slicing into 8 slices.
