I wanted to make a variation of the banana bread found on this website, however our applesauce went bad and we had no eggs. I had already mixed some of the dry ingredients so I did some more research and compiled the following recipe using bits and pieces of different recipes. It came out pretty good and I will definitely be making it again soon.
180 g Whole Wheat Flour (1.5 cups)
60 g Flaxseed Meal (1/2 cup – if you don’t have Flaxseed meal, you can use another .5 cup of flour)
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
250 g or 2 Overripe Bananas (Mash them by hand)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup Soy Milk
1/2 cup Maple Syrup
60 g Pecans (1/2 cup) – Use your favorite nut!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 9×13 inch loaf plan.
In a mixing bowl, combine flour, flaxseed meal, baking soda and baking powder. Next, add the bananas and mash them in the bowl. Add the vanilla, milk and maple syrup and mix. Lastly, add the nuts.
Add mixture to loaf pan and bake for about 30minutes at 350.
