Banana Walnut Bread Made with White Wholewheat Flour


Ingredients:

1. 2 Tbsp (14g) ground flax seeds
2. 6 TBS (90 ml) water
3. 3 medium ripe bananas
4. 1/4 cup (60 ml) olive oil
5. 5 (50 g) dried dates pitted or 45 g sugar
6. 1/2 tsp (2.5 g) baking soda
7. 1/2 tsp (2.5 g) baking powder
8. 1 tsp (5 g) vanilla powder/sugar
9. 1 tsp (5 g) ground cinnamon
10. 1.5 cup (150 g) white whole wheat flour
11. 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
12. 1/4 cup (25 g) chocolate chips (optional)

Directions:

1. In a large mixing bowl, add ground flax seeds and water and mix well. Leave for 5 minutes until it gels.

2. Preheat the oven to 320F/160C and lightly grease a loaf pan.

3. Once the flax seeds have gelled, add the bananas and mash well.

4. If using dried dates instead of sugar, blend dried dates, flax seeds mixture and olive oil now and transfer to the mixing bowl (optional).

5. Otherwise, add olive oil, sugar, vanilla powder and cinnamon powder and mix well.

6. Add the baking soda, baking powder gradually and mix well.

7. Slowly add in the flour and gently mix until partly combined. Then add the chocolate and mix until just combined (do not over mix). Keep some chocolate if desired to sprinkle on top.

8. Transfer into the greased loaf pan and sprinkle cinnamon powder and chocolate chips on top.

9. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until the top is golden, the bread starts to pull away from the sides, and a toothpick comes out clean.

10. Let cool, slice and serve :-)

Storage: 

Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to two days. Wrap individually and store in the freezer for up to one month.

Additional Information:

I had some over-ripe bananas that I have to use it, so I thought of making it into banana walnut bread today :-) I found this very nice recipe from Pick Up Limes, and it tasted super. I tweeted the recipe though by using wholewheat flour, olive oil and half the sugar. It turned out still perfect. In fact, Daddy FECS said that I can reduce the sugar a bit further. The recipe above has been adjusted accordingly. I didn't add any egg.

If you don't have dried dates, you can substitute with 45 g of sugar. 

You can substitute the baking powder and the baking soda with 10g of fresh yeast, if you let the dough rise overnight in the fridge for 6-24 hours.
