Banana & Walnut Bread

An easy plant based bread made with bananas and toasted walnuts

Preheat the oven to 180C

Line a 2 pound load tin with non stick parchment paper

Gently toast the chopped walnuts in a dry frying pan. Put to one side to cool.

In a bowl, mash the bananas (best to use over ripe bananas) with the soft brown sugar, mixing thoroughly, now add the oil and mix in well.

Fold in the flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon and the cooled toasted walnuts.

Pour the cake mix into the lined loaf tin and put in the oven for 25 mins at 180C.

Check after 25 mins that the bread isn’t burning on top. If its starting to go too dark, cover with foil and continue to bake for another 25 mins.

The bread is ready when its golden and firm to the touch and in particular when a toothpick is inserted into the centre of the bread and comes out clean.

Times are approximate as they depend on your oven, bake it and when the toothpick comes out clean its cooked all the way through.

Leave for a few minutes to cool in the tin, and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.
