Ingredients

  • 2+1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 4 very ripe bananas 1+3/4 cup to 2 cups approximately
  • 1/2 cup milk or yogurt
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2/3 cup maple syrup // or 1/3 cup honey + 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp brewed coffee or 1 tsp instant coffee mixed with 2 tsp warm water
  • 1+1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice or nutmeg and clove powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease 9*5 loaf pan and set aside.
  • In a bowl, add mashed bananas (I used a mixer to mash it, no lumps) and all the wet ingredients together
  • Next, add flour, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice, salt and combine. Fold in chopped nuts.
  • Pour the batter onto a greased tray, and bake for 62-65 mins or until a toothpick comes clean. Loosely cover the bread with aluminum foil at 35 minutes mark to prevent the top from getting too brown. The bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. few moist crumbs are okay. This may be before or after 1 hour depending on your oven, so begin checking every 5 minutes at the 55-minute mark or so.
  • Let the bread cool in the loaf pan for at least 10 minutes. Carefully transfer the loaf to a wire rack to cool before slicing.

Notes

  • feel free to add any toppings of your choice. You can add raisins, chocolate chips, or oats.
