Recipe: Banana Bread

I watched my flatmate make banana bread recently and smelling the delicious aromas of the banana baking made me want to cook it myself. I have now cooked banana bread twice in the last week and it has been making for the most delicious breakfasts as of late; toasted with a dash of margarine. What a way to start the day. Even better, this recipe has no refined sugar… go on, have another slice!


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 c butter, melted
  • 1/2 c maple syrup
  • 2 mashed bananas
  • 1/3 c chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 c natural yoghurt
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1 T vanilla essence
  • salt
  • 1.5 c flour (gluten-free or just plain)


  1. 180°C. Line a loaf tin with baking paper.
  2. In a bowl, beat the eggs, then add the melted butter and maple syrup. Mix well.
  3. Add the mashed bananas, walnuts, yoghurt, baking soda, vanilla, salt and mix. Lastly add the flour.
  4. Pour the mixture into the loaf tin. Bake for 50 minutes, or until a skewer or knife slides out clean.
  5. Let the bread cool before serving… if you can wait!
