SIMPLE BANANA BREAD

Ingredients

  • 235g flour (I use unbleached white)
  • 200g sugar (I use unrefined coconut sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt (I use Himalayan)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamon powder
  • 500g ripe bananas (approx. 3 large)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 115g fat (I use raw coconut oil or unsalted organic butter)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (alcohol-free)
  • 175g chocolate chips (I use semi-sweet)

SIMPLE BANANA BREAD

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 °F
  • Grease standard-size loaf pans (I use coconut oil)
  • In a large bowl: mush bananas with a fork/potato masher
  • Add wet ingredients to the bowl of mashed bananas (eggs, cooled melted fat, vanilla) and mix well  
  • In another bowl: mix dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon) whisk until lump free
  • Pour wet ingredients into the bowl of mixed dry ingredients and lightly combine with a spatula/wooden spoon
  • If using chocolate chips, gently fold them into the whole mix
  • Pour the batter into greased pans
  • Bake for 55-60 min or until a toothpick/sushi stick comes out clean when inserted in the center
  • When breads baked: let the pans sit on top of the oven for about 5 minutes before flipping onto a wire cooling rack

VARIATION TIPS

  • Swap chocolate chips for fresh or frozen wild blueberries.
  • Swap unbleached white flour for gluten-free oat flour (oats are naturally gluten free but could be cross-contaminated during manufacturing so make sure to look for “Certified Gluten-Free” options).
  • Swap unbleached white flour for stone ground whole-wheat flour if you like your banana bread more dense and less fluffy.
  • Feel free to add some chopped walnuts.
