This is my go-to banana bread whenever I have bananas laying around that need to be put to use. It doesnt use any oil or processed sugar, and I’ve made it using all kinds of healthier flour before and it turns out great.
- 2 cups flour (I often do 1 cup white, 1 cup spelt)
- 2 cups mashed overripe banana
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 cup finely chopped dates
- 2 tbsp flax seed powder + 6 tbsp water
- 1-2 tbsp sesame seeds
Pre-heat the oven at 325 degrees.
Mix flax seed powder with water, stir well and leave it aside till gooey.
Mash the banana well.
In a big bowl add the flour with baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and mix well. now add the chopped dates and stir together. Add the mashed banana and flax seed powder mixed with water and stir till it’s combined.
Fold this into a greased loaf pan and sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
Bake for 45min – 1 hour until its golden on the outside.
