Recipe: Banana cinnamon loaf *sugar/oil/dairy/egg free*


I always like to try new recipe related to banana, it's just so versatile and probably the simplest bake! Previously, I've attempted 2 other banana recipes, low fat banana loaf and banana cinnamon bread but none of them is as awesome as this current one that I've baked. Not only did the loaf turns out beautifully (in my opinion), it also can't get any healthier! Listen carefully, this is sugar free, oil free, dairy free and egg free. 

So it's back to basic with just banana, cinnamon, flour, baking powder and baking soda. :) 


Ingredients:
4 medium sized ripe bananas
1.5 cups all purpose flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
0.5 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon powder

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 180 degree C.
2. Mash and blend the bananas.
. 3. Sift together the flour, baking soda and baking powder before folding into (2).
4. Pour the batter into a lined tin.
5. Bake at 180 degree C for 30-40 minutes or till a skewer comes out clean.  

Do I need to repeat how simple banana loafs are? :D


I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful the loaf turned out to be, especially when I'm baking for a friend. :')


Couldn't resist trying a piece and of course to ensure it's worthy of a gift. :D 

Guess what? 
I died in banana heaven~ The loaf was so moist, soft and I'm totally loving the natural sweetness of the banana. Who would believe that it's actually so healthy as well?! Immediately I told myself, this is it. I have found my prefect banana loaf recipe. :3


I got a little carried away with the banana loaf that I totally forgotten that I need to rush out for my lunch date. :P 

Anyways, lunch was at VeganBurg, a healthy and tasty vegan fastfood venue. Will blog about it soon! :)

Love, 
Lirong.

  1. Wow Lirong, this is truly awesome recipe with cinnamon powder added. Must buy some bananas and wait till they turn over ripe to try out this loaf. If I read it correctly, there was no proofing too.

    Easy peasy, many thanks for sharing recipe.

  9. Hi Lirong,
    Is it possible to make these into muffins? :)

  10. Is the sweetness of the bananas enough? I really want to make this, but sometimes I notice that recipes with only bananas as a sweetener are too bland for my family's taste. :(

    1. Hi!:)

      In my opinion it's not sweet at all since I didn't add any sugar to it. But you can always add in if your family has a sweeter tooth! :)

    1. Hi!:)

      Definitely not a smooth batter. It's ok to have lumps as you don't want to over mix the batter. :)

    2. okay! is it supposed to be kinda watery? It'd stick onto my hands, unlike cookie dough? I'm sorry I'm very inexperienced!

      Delete
    3. Haha! No worries dear!:) Yes it's very sticky! Although it's call 'banana bread', the batter is actually more cake-like. So I suggest you make with a spatula! :)
