Buzzing for This Honey Walnut Banana Bread

IMG_8453

Is there anything better than banana bread in the oven? I was debating if I should go the peanut butter and chocolate chip route or honey walnut, and I settled on the latter (which just means I’ll have to save some bananas to bake up a new kind!). I loved the crunch of the walnuts and floral notes that the honey added. Whilst best straight out of the oven, the loaf freezes well to be enjoyed at a later date, like when you’re skiing up in Vermont. Using Soul Bee powered honey, this Honey Walnut Banana Bread is a fun take on your standard loaf.

Ingredients (makes 1 loaf; serves 12).

  • 2½-3 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 t vanilla
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 c raw turbinado sugar
  • 1/8 c honey powder (like Soul Bee)
  • 3/4 c unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1 c almond flour
  • 1¼ c old-fashioned oats (gluten-free)
  • 1 c flour *
  • 1/3 c + 1 T chopped walnuts
  • Honey flakes to top (optional — like Soul Bee’s flakes)

* Substitute for 1 c oat flour to be gluten-free.

Directions.

  1. Preheat oven to 350º F. Grease a loaf/bread pan or line with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, add bananas through flour and mix well. Fold in walnuts.
  3. Pour batter into greased or lined loaf pan and top with 1 T of extra walnuts and sprinkle with honey flakes (optional).
  4. Bake for 35-45 min until bread is firm, crunchy and golden on top.
  5. Cool completely before slicing to let bread firm up.
  6. Enjoy!

Adapted from my Gluten-Free Banana Bread.
