Nutty Banana Bread

Nutty Banana Bread

Makes 1 medium size loaf


  • Jiwa Organic Chakki Fresh Atta – 1 cup
  • Baking powder – 1tsp
  • Baking soda – ½ tsp
  • Salt – a pinch
  • Overripe bananas – 3 (mashed)
  • Brown Sugar – 3/4 cup
  • Extra virgin Olive Oil – 1/2 cup
  • Vanilla extract – 1tsp
  • Cinnamon powder- 1 tsp
  • Nutmeg powder – ¼ tsp
  • Walnuts – ½ cup, coarsely chopped


Coat the walnuts in some flour and keep them aside (this prevents them from sinking to the bottom of the pan while baking). Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Beat the bananas and sugar till the sugar dissolves. Add in the oil, vanilla, spices, and mix well. Add in the flour mixture and mix gently till it is incorporated. Do not beat this mixture to death, unless you want a sunken valley in the bread! Gently fold in the walnuts. Bake at 180 degrees in a preheated oven, for 30-35 minutes or till a skewer inserted comes out clean. Wait to cool before you slice (or maybe just dig in with a spoon, after you top it with a heavenly scoop of vanilla ice cream).
