Recipe | Whole Wheat Banana Bread

Nutella, Cocoa, Cashew Nut & Chia Seed Whole Wheat Banana Bread 
(photo looks a little dark but rest assured it's not burnt.. It's the chocolate!) :)
  • 2-3 ripe bananas (mashed)
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • a pinch of salt 
  • 1 egg
  • 1½ cups of whole wheat flour/all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar or nutella (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon flax seeds (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons of crushed nuts peanuts/hazelnuts/cashews/walnuts/almonds (optional)


1. In a large bowl, mash the ripe bananas & butter until soft and smooth with a fork.

2. Mix in the vanilla extract, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder or sugar. Stir in the beaten egg.

3. Add in the nuts, seeds, nutella (optional). Mix in the flour.

4. Preheat oven to 175 degrees C (350 degrees F). Lightly grease a 4x8 inch loaf pan with olive oil. Pour the batter into the loaf pan.

5. Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick (inserted in the middle of the loaf) comes out clean.

6. Remove from oven, let bread cool in pan for 5 minutes and turn it out on to rack. Slice & serve.

Note: Sometimes I pour half the batter into the loaf pan, then spread a layer of nutella before pouring the rest of the batter in for a sweeter version and a layer of nuts at the top. 😊
