- ¼ cup all bran
- ½ cup skim milk
- 1 cup sifted wholemeal flour
- 1tsp baking powder
- 1 cup unprocessed oat bran
- 3 med or 2 large bananas
- 1 egg
- 30 gms butter
- 2 tablespoon Honey
- ¼ cup chopped walnuts
- (optional: Extra walnuts to sprinkle on top of loaf)
Preheat the oven to 160°C. Soak the all bran in skim milk for 30 mins and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas, and combine with honey, soft butter and 1 egg.
In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, unprocessed oat bran and baking powder. Next, add the bran and all the milk to the flour mixture and stir well. When you have a well-combined mixture, stir this into your banana mix and add the walnuts.
Once your mixture is thoroughly combined, place it in a lightly greased loaf tin or tin lined with baking paper. Cook for 45 mins at 160°C, or until cooked through. Once the cooking is complete, be sure to allow the tin to cool before removing the banana loaf.
