Great for the school or kinder lunchbox (leave out the walnuts). Will also freeze well in ziplock bags.

Ingredients (makes 1 Loaf)

  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Golden syrup
  • 65 mls Hot water
  • 2 Bananas, mashed
  • 2 Egg whites
  • 125 mls Low fat milk (or almond milk)
  • 2 cups Wholemeal self raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • Handful Walnuts or sultanas (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees
  2. In a bowl combine the oil, sugar, golden syrup and hot water. Cool slightly.
  3. Add the banana, egg whites and milk and whisk together. For a smoother, less lumpy bread, I often will blend the banana, egg whites and milk in my smoothie maker or with the stick mixer.
  4. Add the flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Mix well. Stir in optional ingredients (walnuts, sultanas).
  5. Pour into a loaf pan and bake for 35-40 minutes.


You can also add other dried fruits like dates, raisins or even cherries. For a treat choc chips are a easy sweetener.

  • Must try this recipe. Nothing better than a piece of hot banana bread with a bit of butter in the morning with a cup of coffee.


  • It looks delicious and no butter! Thanks!


  • This looks like a nice healthy banana cake.


  • No butter. wow that’s amazing. Thanks


  • Looks delicious! I like the idea of adding other dried fruit too!


  • I love banana bread so I’m always on the lookout for healthier recipes. Thanks for sharing.


  • Have changed a few things to make it family safe. This has become very popular to make up on the weekend for school/work lunches.


  • Looks yummy but I think I would reduce the sugar.


  • With all the ingredients, I can’t see a problem for good healthy butter to be added.


  • Will be looking into this and hopefully ok for the family to eat. The sugar content is a bit high.


  • This homemade banana bread looks great i love the recipe


  • Wow finally got a recipe. I love banana bread and can have it almost daily. Now I can make it at home.


  • What a great recipe. I like this a lot and will definitely make this. Thanks for sharing this fab idea. It will probably be my fav lol


  • saving this.. sounds a lot like my ginger bread but with banana instead of ginger. Will try since I bought loads of bananas and they stopped eating them. Thankyou
