Monday's Meal of the Day - Healthy Wholemeal Banana Blueberry Bread (Sugarless, Butterless)

Its been a while since I did a MOTD post, this Monday's Meal of the Day features 'Healthy Wholemeal Banana Blueberry Bread'

I wanted to make a healthy version of banana bread which I could enjoy guilt free and satisfy my craving. 
So, obviously this recipe does not taste same as the traditional banana bread (with butter, sugar and plain flour), but for the ingredients it has, it tastes pretty good, well in my opinion.  

Some tips :
  • Banana Bread will be sweeter if the bananas are riper.
  • Sweetener (sugar, honey or any other) can be added as per taste, this recipe was made using only 1 1/2 tbsp honey. 
  • Apple sauce or stevia or agave can also be used to sweeten the bread.
  • Any dried fruit or nut can be used.


1 1/2  cup self raising wholemeal flour, 3 eggs, 1 punnet blueberries (chopped), 3 ripe bananas (mashed), honey (I used 1 1/2 tbsp), 1/2 tsp salt, 2 1/2 tbsp olive oil , 1 tsp baking powder, 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 2 tbps walnuts (finely chopped), 1 tsp sultanas (chopped)

How To
  • In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients
  • In a separate bowl, mix all the wet ingredients
  • Mix the wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
  • Line a loaf tin with baking paper.
  • Pour the mixture into the tin.
  • Preheat the oven at 180 degrees C. 
  • Bake for 45-50 mins
  • The top should be nice and brown.

And you are done. Hope you liked the recipe.
