Banana Bread.. Sugar Free | Recipe

February Book: Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham Page Number: COMPLETE

Hello! As I mentioned in this post I have given up refined sugar for lent, basically any sugar that has been processed. I have a massive sweet tooth, so I've began to hunt around for alternatives. My first cake alternative is this Banana Bread, and it tastes delicious, and really isn't that unhealthy at all. I didn't have the correct tin unfortunately hence why it looks a bit flat, in the images.

125 g Wholemeal Self-raising flour
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
2 tsp Ground Cinnamon (or to taste)
75g Sultanas
50g Butter, melted
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Egg
1 tbsp Milk
3 Ripe Bananas, mashed

Preheat oven 180C/160C Fab/gas mark 4 and line a small loaf tin.

Mix together flour, baking powder and sultanas in a bowl.

In a separate bowl, Mix with a balloon whisk together the, butter, vanilla extract, egg, milk and mashed bananas until combined.

Add the wet mixture to the dry, and mix together.

Pour the cake mixture into the prepared tin.

Bake for 30 minutes.

Cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then turn out.

This recipe is very moreish and tempting, maybe this no refined sugars thing won't turn out to be too bad after all!

Thanks for popping by!
