Whole Wheat Banana Bread
With a few simple substitutions, this high-fiber alternative offers all the flavor and moistness of the original.
- 1⅔ cup (200 g) whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt, optional
- ⅓ cup (80 ml) oat milk
- ½ cup (160 ml) Homemade Date Syrup
- ¼ cup (60 g) apples
- ¼ cup (60 ml) egg substitute, or 1 large egg
- ¼ cup (60 g) margarine
- 1 teaspoon lemon peel
- 2 (220 g) banana, peeled
- ⅔ cup (80 g) chopped walnuts
- Preheat oven to 350˚F (180˚C). Spray an 8 1/2-inch x 4 1/2-inch (21.25 cm x 11.25 cm) loaf pan with cooking spray.
- Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a medium-sized bowl. Set aside.
- Place oat milk, date syrup, applesauce, egg substitute or egg, margarine, lemon peel, and bananas into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
- Start the machine on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to its highest speed. Blend for 10-15 seconds or until mixed. Stop the machine.
- Remove lid and carefully pour bowl of dry ingredients, along with walnuts, into the container. Secure the lid.
- Pulse the machine on Variable 5, using the tamper to press ingredients toward the blades as necessary, 10-12 times or until flour is just combined. Pour batter into the sprayed loaf pan.
- Place in preheated oven and bake for approximately 1 hour, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
Please measure ingredients by gram weight if possible when baking, as recipes will come out more exact this way.
