Banana-Apple Bread

Yum


Weekend = Baking. That is a statement. This action cannot be changed, left out, postponed. Except if I travel somewhere. Travel is number one. Then comes baking. So as I already mentioned I changed lifestyle to vegan. I am a very happy vegan who is even happier when I get to cheat from time to time and eat some crepes, like I did yesterday. I know real vegans don't cheat, they are perfect...But I didn't go vegan because of philosophy, I don't eat meat and dairy because my body doesn't tolerate it. That is a slight difference. 

But today is Saturday and I am home with my family. No guests are coming so it is entirely up to me what I choose to make as a dessert today! And to stick to a healthy diet I chose banana bread! I have been dying to make it for years. But no one ever said yes to my proposal to make banana bread so I simply acknowledged that it has to wait. Until today! Because I found 2 ripe bananas in the kitchen and that just called for a banana bread! :)

It is not entirely vegan. It has 2 eggs and 1 tablespoon of honey. Oh and butter. But as a totally weird vegan, I don't consider butter as cheating. Since it's fat, it's not protein, right? 
The result was utterly surprising! I didn't really think that it will be so delicious...But it is! It is moist, it smells and tastes like banana with a hint of apple. The shredded apples give it such a nice texture. It is sweet, yet not overly sweet. Cinnamon butter will go so well with it. I recommend you highly to make this bread TODAY :) It is so simple and easy and healthy!

Banana- Apple Bread

2 ripe bananas
2 smaller apples - peeled and shredded
2 eggs
110 grams butter
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons cane sugar
vanilla
1 cup cake flour
2/3 cup whole wheat spelt flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup nuts - I used peanuts
cinnamon
nutmeg

Toast the nuts in a pan then let them cool. Mash the bananas together. Beat the eggs and add them to the melted butter. Add the butter mixture to the mashed bananas and mash them again. Add the shredded apples to the mix and sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg generously on it. Add the honey and sugar. Mix it together. In another bowl mix the flour, baking soda and baking powder together. Add the flour mix to the wet ingredients. Add the nuts. Grease a bread pan and pour the bread mixture in it. Bake it for 55 minutes on 170C.

  3. What a great thing to do with overly ripe bananas and apples! I substituted half of the butter for applesauce..about 3.5Tablespoons. Turned out dense and moist. Very delicious! Thank you!
