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 Raw apple sauce of 1 apple, or 1/2 C store bought apple sauce 1 tsp vanilla, powdered cardamom, or spices of your choice (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 F, and dust* a bundt pan, or 2 loaf pans. If you plan on using a pressure cooker, see instructions below.
Mix all dry ingredients and combine well.
Make a well in the center and add mashed bananas and apple sauce little at a time until all dry flour is just incorporated.
Fold in to combine, and do not over mix. 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 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.
