Great for the school or kinder lunchbox (leave out the walnuts). Will also freeze well in ziplock bags.


Ingredients (makes 1 Loaf)

  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Golden syrup
  • 65 mls Hot water
  • 2 Bananas, mashed
  • 2 Egg whites
  • 125 mls Low fat milk (or almond milk)
  • 2 cups Wholemeal self raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • Handful Walnuts or sultanas (optional)

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees
  2. In a bowl combine the oil, sugar, golden syrup and hot water. Cool slightly.
  3. Add the banana, egg whites and milk and whisk together. For a smoother, less lumpy bread, I often will blend the banana, egg whites and milk in my smoothie maker or with the stick mixer.
  4. Add the flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Mix well. Stir in optional ingredients (walnuts, sultanas).
  5. Pour into a loaf pan and bake for 35-40 minutes.

Notes... You can also add other dried fruits like dates, raisins or even cherries. For a treat choc chips are a easy sweetener.

  • Have changed a few things to make it family safe. This has become very popular to make up on the weekend for school/work lunches.

  • Looks yummy but I think I would reduce the sugar.

  • With all the ingredients, I can’t see a problem for good healthy butter to be added.

  • Will be looking into this and hopefully ok for the family to eat. The sugar content is a bit high.
