No waste recipe: healthy and delicious banana bread

  • 2 min read

Do you have a bunch of sad bananas lying around? Beautiful! Because that is the ultimate basis for this quick and tasty recipe. People normally turn up their noses here for healthy homemade recipes, but when this recipe is in the oven, everyone is happy. So time to share it with you.

Below you will find the recipe, but feel free to vary according to taste. Except for the walnuts and chocolate, I always have the ingredients mentioned at home, but sometimes I miss something - almond flour for example - and then I just throw in something else that looks like it.



Quantity: 1 loaf
Preparation time: 1 hour 15 minutes.

Requirements: 25-27 cm cake tin, baking paper and an oven

  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 6 dates without pit
  • 2 tsp baking powder (can be substituted for pointer baking soda)
  • 100 grams almond flour
  • 100 grams of oatmeal flakes
  • 20 grams coconut grater
  • pinch of salt
  • 50 grams chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 50 grams chopped dark chocolate (optional)

Preparation method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180℃, grease the cake tin and line with baking paper
  2. beat the eggs in a large mixing bowl
  3. peel the bananas and mash them with a fork through the eggs
  4. put the dates, baking powder, almond flour, oatmeal flakes, grated coconut and a pinch of salt in the mixing bowl and puree with a hand blender until smooth
  5. optional: fold in the walnuts and chocolate pieces with a spatula
  6. Divide the batter into the cake tin and bake for about 1 hour. Check your baking regularly. After 30 min. I often cover the cake with a piece of large aluminum foil so that the top does not turn black (but that depends on our oven)
  7. check for doneness after 50 minutes with a skewer. If the skewer comes out clean, the cake is done. Allow to cool for 30 minutes, remove from the mold and allow to cool further on a wire rack for 1 hour. Your bread is ready!
TIP : we like to eat a slice with a little peanut butter
