This is the real deal, there are no shortcuts or substitutes, just 100% delicious homemade banana bread goodness. The kicker? I am going to teach you how to eat it. I am a firm believer in the fact that you can eat everything, but unlike Bethany Frankly, I want to actually feel like I am eating it, not nibbling. Understanding exactly what you are eating helps you to understand the proper way to consume it. So, in addition to a step-by-step recipe guide I have broken down the numbers for you to understand how you can bake your bread and eat it too.
Ingredients: 2 cups of flour, 2 eggs, 3/4 a cup of sugar, 1/4 a cup of vegetable oil, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/4 a teaspoon on baking soda, 3 medium very ripe bananas, 1/2 a cup of chopped walnuts
Tip! If you are using super ripe bananas that you have frozen, place in hot bowl of water to allow the skin to effortlessly peel off.
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- In a bowl comine eggs, sugar and vegetable oil.
- Once mixed, add in your remaining ingredients.
- Fold in your walnuts.
- Pour batter into a greased 9×5 loaf pan. Be sure you use a non-stick cooking spray rather than butter to cut back on unnecessary fat.
- Bake for about 60 minutes. You’ll know your loaf is ready when your toothpick comes out clean when stuck through the center of the loaf.
- Allow to cool fully before taking out of the pan!
Okay, so your entire loaf of bread is 2,372 calories, 335 g of carbohydrates, 38 grams of protein and 105 g of fat. All of those numbers scream hands off, but if you cut your loaf into sixteen pieces each piece (one serving) leaves you with….
148 calories, 20 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of protein and 6 grams of fat!
