Healthy Banana Nut Bread Recipe

3/4 C Whole Wheat Flour
3/4 C Unbleached All purpose flour
or any combo or GF flour
3/4 C sugar or dates or sweetener of your choice
3/4 tsp Baking Soda
3/4 tsp Baking Powder
2 TBS flax meal (optional)
1/2 – 3/4 C chopped walnuts
4 mashed very ripe bananas
1 raw apple sauce of 1 apple
1 tsp vanilla orpowdered cardamom or spices of your choice (optional)

Mix all dry ingredients and combine well. Make a well in the center and add mashed bananas and apple mixture little at a time until all dry flour is incorporated. You may have a little bit of the apple-banana mixture left over. Enjoy left over banana-apple sauce.

Fold to combine. Do not overmix. Mixture should be more like a stiff dough. (Fold and cut, fold and cut…)

Bake at 350F for 45-60 mins or until toothpick comes out clean.

NOTE: DUSTING PAN
We need flour to stick to the surface of the pan. Water works well in place of oil. Just need a spritz or spray or apply water with a silicone brush. Then sprinkle flour on the water surface.

Replace bananas with cranberry-orange zest, zucchini-choc chip or other fruity combos.

This cake can be baked in a stove top Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker. Line the pressure cooker with 1 inch table salt. Let it warm up on medium heat until batter is prepared. Put a ring in the center, arrange cake in another vessel to sit on the ring. Bake for 45 mins to 1 hr. Check to see if knife inserted comes out clean.

Enjoy!
