Honey Banana Bread with a Twist.

Do you love banana bread? I do, and though I have my main “go to” recipe, I am always looking for different ways to jazz it up. From adding blueberries, to nuts, to marbled banana bread, peanut butter, Nutella, using self raising flour, and this one which I tried some time ago using, wait for it…… avocado!

Disclaimer:I am not a perfect baker by any means, I just like experimenting with my food sometimes.

Let’s get started shall we?

Ingredients:-

  1. 3 cups flour, I used All purpose flour, amaranth flour and brown flour.
  2. 4 large ripe bananas.
  3. 2 eggs.
  4. One half of a ripe avocado.
  5. 1/3 cup natural yoghurt.
  6. 2/3 cup honey.
  7. 1/4 cup sunflower oil.
  8. 1 tsp salt.
  9. 2 tsp baking soda.
  10. 1tsp baking powder.
  11. 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar.
  12. 1 tsp vanilla extract.
  13. A pinch of cinnamon.

Method.

Prepare your baking tin and preheat your oven at 180°C.

Mash the bananas and avocado together.
Add the oil, eggs and honey, mix well.
Add the yoghurt and all other ingredients except the flours.
Mix.
Sift the flour mix into the wet ingredients.
Once mixed, pour into your prepared baking tin.
Decided to add some oats and chia on top just before putting in the oven.
Bake for about 75 min or until ready (check with a skewer ) at 180° C.
Voila! The darker colour is because of the brown flour and the honey too as it darkens baked goods.

This definitely qualifies as a healthy quick bread, don’t you think?

It was tasty, a bit dense but moist and you could not guess the ingredients in there, other than the banana of course. The family loved it and I did too. Win!
