Banana Bread

by thepearandthepurplepeach


I have been trialling a few banana bread recipes for a while now but I have finally perfected this one. The addition of the apples and apricots add to the moistness. It’s quick, easy and super yummy and a perfect way to use up those super ripe bananas.

What you need

2 large or 3 smaller ripe bananas
Dried apricots *
1 Apple peeled and chopped in small prices
2/3 cup Maple syrup
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup melted coconut oil

Handful of chopped nuts (optional)

* look for organic sulphur free apricots. (I get mine here) They are brown colour are simply magnificent. You could use prunes or dates in place if you don’t have apricots.

What you do

Line a loaf tin with no stick paper and heat your oven to 190 degrees

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir until combined. Ensure you don’t over mix this be gentle

Pour into a loaf tin, Cook in the oven for around 45 mins until golden and a skewer cones out clean. Allow to cool then slice.

Freezes well
