What up party people, today from the babe street kitchen I bring to you one of my all-time favorite cake/bread things, Banana Bread baby!
I bloody love anything banana as a kid I’d easily polish through a bunch of bananas a day, I was a little cheeky monkey – see what I did there? Lame I know but thought it might get some chuckles.
This Banana bread is on the healthier side ish I mean it’s got 4 bananas in it so that counts as one of your five a day right? if only. To make the recipe I use a food processor to blend up everything, it’s just easier and super quick to whizz it all up. If you don’t have a blender or a food processor you can do it by hand it just takes more time I find, but you may be a whizz at it.
The recipe calls for oat flour, oat flour is super easy to make just blitz some rolled oats in a blender and boom you’ve got oat flour. One cup of rolled oats will make 1 cup of oat flour. I also add in almond flour however if you don’t have that just swap it for more oat flour or AP flour depending on what you have available.
To go that bit extra we created a layer of banana bread and peanut butter in the middle. To do this pour half the mixture into the pan, slice a banana lengthways and place on top of the mixture, blob the peanut butter then pour the remainder over the top.
Banana bread takes about 40 minutes to cook in the oven. I know it seems like a long time but it’s worth the wait. While it’s cooking in the oven fit in some yoga, have a dance in your kitchen, crack open a beer whatever you feel like hunni bee.
Best served warm with some butter slathered over the top. Or if you’d prefer to turn your bread into the ultimate banana dessert, serve warm with some banana ice cream! trust me it’s banalicious darling. (I’ll stop with the banana puns it’s cringe I know).
Give it a whirl your next Sunday bake, have fun with it, and most of all keep on cooking good looking.
