I am sure that you will definitely become a fan of this banana bread once you try it. It is really quick to make and simple too. Most of the banana recipes you would find use ‘All Purpose flour’ or ‘Maida’ but what I like most about this recipe is that it uses Whole Wheat flour (called “Aata” in hindi). This makes this banana bread perfect for kids. You can easily give this to your kids in tiffin or evening snacks. Also, it is a Vegan recipe i.e. If you are allergic to milk or not consuming milk products by choice then this banana bread recipe is just perfect for you.
As we all are already aware, banana has numerous health benefits. It is a rich source of potassium, magnesium and vitamins etc. Apart from this it is also beneficial for patients suffering from constipation because of its fibre contents. This bread makes for a complete breakfast as it comprises of banana, whole wheat flour and nuts. You can even grab a slice of it with your evening tea or coffee.
Please note, you are advised to use only ripe or over-ripe bananas for this recipe. Adding nuts to it is a personal choice. You can even add chocolate chips.

|Silicon Bakeware Pan Mould:https://amzn.to/2Ahc7ER|
Fold it with light strokes using a silicon spatula or spoon. Once the ingredients are mixed, add remaining dry ingredients to it and fold once again so that no lumps are formed. Please do not over mix the batter.
I would suggest you to check the centre of banana bread after 30 minutes using a toothpick. If toothpick comes out clean, the bread is ready else bake to for another 5 minutes.
Once the bread is ready bring it out of oven/OTG. Let it cool down in its mould for 15-20 minutes. Then transfer it on a rack or plate where it can cool down completely.This will take another half an hour.
(Many readers enquire about the brand of OTG or oven which I use for baking. I have been using BAJAJ 35 Litres OTG for most of my baking needs and I am quite satisfied with it. You can check out its price and other specifications on amazon by clicking here.)
Storage Method: Once the bread has cooled down, wrap it in a cling film, tranfer it in any container or bread box and store it in refrigerator. Whenever you want to eat or serve this bread , just bring the bread out of the refrigerator, unwrap the cling film from one end, cut the slices and keep the remaining bread in fridge again. This way you can consume the bread for up to 3-4 days comfortably. It will remain soft and moist without any effect on its taste.
Enjoy this banana bread in your breakfast, with your tea. Kids are surely going to love it with their glass of milk!!
