Smooth and Sweet Banana Bread!

This delicious banana bread is egg-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free!

So no butter, eggs, milk, or sugar...what the heck is in here?


I adapted this recipe from one that came in the recipe book that goes with my bread maker, the Zojirushi Virtuoso Breadmaker.

Dr Greger Daily Dozen Check Marks: 1 and 2) bananas and dates, 3) flaxseed, 4), spices, 5) whole wheat flour, 6) walnuts

Smooth Banana Bread

3 bananas, very ripe (add an extra half banana if they are small)
3 T flaxseed, ground
1 c water, warm
1 t vanilla (optional)
1 t cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice (you can't taste it, but you're adding antioxidants!)
3/4 c dates, well-chopped (~145 grams OR 15 pieces)
2 c whole wheat flour
3 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
Optional add-in: 1/2 c walnuts, chopped, and folded in just before baking

Mash bananas, combine with flax, water, vanilla, and dates. Separately, combine remaining dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients to wet gradually until just mixed. Bake at 375 degrees for an hour, and enjoy! Allow less time if making as cookies, instead of bread, ~20 min.

In my bread maker, I just throw it all in without even mashing the banana, and hit the "cake" button! Awesome :)

Can I use just buckwheat and no wholegrain flour? :)

I haven't before, but I am pretty sure others have had success with the bread using buckwheat! Thanks for stopping!
