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.

Notes... You can also add other dried fruits like dates, raisins or even cherries. For a treat choc chips are a easy sweetener.
  • This looks and sounds delicious. Blueberries would be so nice in this as well as an alternative to sultanas and nuts. yumm. thanks for sharing.


  • An excellent addition to a lunchbox, looks pretty healthy and really delicious


  • This sounds like such a yummy recipe!! Can’t wait to try it out!!


  • I made Banana bread the other day..had to put so much butter..I like the idea of a healthier version


  • If you are giving this to the children to take to school I suggest you don’t put nuts in them at all. Some schools are nut free. That means all nuts not just peanuts.

    • Swap the walnuts for sultanas…or other dried fruits will work well

      • In the case you want to make it nut free to be able to take it to school, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds are a beautiful alternative and just as nutritious.


  • A gorgeous looking banana bread – would like this warm for breakfast!

    • Will add the walnuts for home – banana and walnut is just too delicious not to eat!


  • awesome recipe – cannot wait to try it out – love banana and walnut great combination! – thank you for sharing


  • Thinking dark chocolate bits and banana loaf sounds like a great idea.


  • Your banana bread look’s amazing,adding extra dried fruit is a great idea as well! Thanks!
