Banana, Blueberry and Almond Bread

Banana, Blueberry and Almond Bread

I had some seriously sorry looking Bananas at the end of the week this week, and I’ve been terrible for not using them up lately and just lobbing them. But with a bit of time on my hands I wanted to try out a Banana Bread, I opted for a version without Sugar and to be honest when I ate it I was a bit like hmmmm could do with chucking a load of Sugar in there BUT it made for a great guilt free Breakfast as I do try and avoid adding Sugar in things! I’m going to have it again this morning but toasted with a little Butter and I’m quite excited about that 🙃.

For 1 Loaf/10 slices you will need:

  • 150g Wholemeal Flour
  • 100g Self Raising Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 300g Banana (over ripe)
  • 4 tbsp Honey
  • 3 Eggs
  • 150g Total 0% Yoghurt
  • 100g Blueberries
  • 30g Flaked Almonds

Pre heat the Oven to 140′.

First mash the Banana up in a bowl. Then whip the Eggs till they are fluffy.

Add the Yoghurt, Banana and Honey to the Eggs and whip in.

Add the Flour, Baking Powder and Bi Carb and fold in gently.

Add Blueberries and stir through. You could use anything really (chocolate chips would of been lovely) but I just had some Bluebs to use up!

Line a loaf tin with some paper and a little oil spray. Add the mix to the tin and top with the Flaked Almonds, again you could use anything you like Walnuts would be nice too.

Pop into the Oven and cook for 1hr20mins… I went for low and slow cooking as it’s quite a dense loaf and I didn’t want to burn the nuts on top.

And that’s it! Let me know if you try it and I hope you like it!
