    75 Minutes

    Hello everyone,

    As we are all spending our days at home, I see that all of my friends and the people I follow on social media (Youtubers, Bloggers, Actors, Actresses and etc.) are looking for things to keep themselves busy. 

    It’s certain that we are going through a very different process from our normal day-to-do, but I believe the most important thing is protecting our physical and mental health. If you are asking yourself; "I was here to find out the banana bread recipe, what is she talking about?!" I can totally understand, so let me get to it. I’m here to give you a recipe, which you will enjoy to prepare and keep yourself busy at home. 

    I want to highlight that this one will be a kind-a-healthy recipe. No refined sugar, no sour cream and no all-purpose flour! We are at home and not socializing these days but we still care about ourselves, right?

    Ingredients:

    • 2 eggs
    • ½ cup virgin olive oil. (Around 100 grams)
    • 3 tablespoons of plain whole-milk Greek yoghurt
    • 3 large ripe bananas (Around 350 grams)
    • 3 tablespoons of honey or agave syrup
    • 1 ¾ gluten-free or whole wheat flour
    • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon of salt
    • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
    • ½ cup chopped bitter chocolate or walnuts (optional)


    How to Make:

    -Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. (356 Fahrenheit)

    -In a large bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until completely smooth. 

    -First add the eggs and then the virgin olive oil, honey and yoghurt. Stir all of them.

    -In another cup, combine the flour, salt and baking soda.

    -Add the second mixture to the mashed bananas and stir. You can add walnuts or the bitter chocolate too. (I don’t add them.)

    -Stir everything until it’s uniformed. Do not overmix. 

    -Pour the mixture into a greased loaf pan. Sprinkle the cinnamon. 

    -Bake for 55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. 

    -Let the bread cool in the loaf pan for 10 minutes.

    -Transfer it onto a plate and let it cool for 20 more minutes before slicing. 

    Vegan Options for the Ingredients:

    -Replace honey with agave or maple syrup.

    -Use flax eggs instead of chicken eggs.

    -Use almond mild or water instead of cow milk.

    How to Make Flax Eggs at Home:

    -Put 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal and 3 tablespoons of water in a cup and stir. Let it rest for 5 minutes to thicken. 

    -This recipe equals to 1 egg.
