Banana-Walnut Bread


A healthy banana bread that toasts beautifully, which will provide you with many mornings of breakfasty enjoyment.


  • 1 3/4 cups mashed banana (3 large bananas)
  • 2 dashes of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Splash of rum
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup wholemeal spelt flour
  • 1/2 cup white flour
  • 1/2 oat bran
  • 2 tsp baking soda 
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnut



Mash bananas in a large bowl using a fork and stir in cinnamon.

Stir in rum, eggs, oil and sugar until well combined.

Add in baking soda, flours and oat bran and use a spatular to stir through well. Lastly, mix in walnuts.

Pour the thick batter into a rectangular cake tin and place in a preheated 180*C oven for 50 minutes, or until cooked through when tested with a skewer.

Cool on a wire rack.

Slice and serve with honey and butter if desired.

Or, for an afternoon treat and if you’re feeling particularly naughty, make some chocolate ganash and spread on top, along with some dried banana chips 😛
