Banana Bread Improvement

On my previous post “Happy New Year 2016 !”, I mentioned that my Banana bread did not turn as expected. 😦

Sometimes these things happens. The funny story is that I did not have butter but I wanted to use a light olive oil instead. I had all the ingredients out and started to work on the bread. At a moment I said ” why did I leave the oil out here, I should put it back !” And so I did. As you may guess, it had not been a very smart move…

I  wanted to make a Banana Bread like Elise from ” Simply Recipe” And it would have been perfect if I wouldn’t have been so eager to clean up my counter before finishing the bread. 🙂

The finishing product turned out to be too good to be wasted and since we don’t tend to throw away food,  I found a way to make it easier to eat. I melted some dark chocolate and I fixed the problem.

Now we are ready to lick our fingers !!! It was worth waiting 🙂


  • 4 very ripe banana smashed ( I like t have a few banana;s bits there )
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup grape seeds oil or light olive oil (or butter )
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 cup  roasted and diced almonds
  • 1/4 cup roasted and diced peanuts ( I usually use walnuts but I did not have this time )
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (optional)
  • juice from half of lemon
  • 1 1/2 whole-wheat flour

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease and lined a baking tray with baking sheet. ( and now I put the oil aside :(. Don’t do like me )

Mix the eggs with sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour over banana mixture and stir to combine the ingredients. Pour the mixture over the flour add the baking powder and pour over the lemon juice over the baking powder. It;s going to help the baking process 🙂

Incorporate by folding the nuts and chocolate chips and pour the mixture in the prepared baking tin.

After 30 35 minutes you should try if the tooth pick comes out clean your bread is ready. If not leave it  more minutes.
