Have some leftover overripe banana? And getting bored to use it for banana milkshake or fried bananas? Don't throw it away. Making banana bread is one of a great and easy idea to use leftover  overripe banana. ^^ I've been searching for a banana bread recipe and tried some of them but none of them really touch my tongue and my heart. Last week, I found this recipe from and tried it with a little bit modification. It was great!! This recipe didn't use any sugar on it and use a whole wheat flour instead of white flour. The taste of honey and nutty flavor from the whole wheat flour really gave difference on the banana bread it self. I like it.

When I made it, I tried to sprinkle some mixture of brown sugar and ground cinnamon on the top of the butter right before I put it into the oven. And I liked the result. The melted brown sugar made the top of the bread become crispy and sweet and it goes really well with the taste of the banana bread itself. Totally love it and definitely going to remake this recipe again next time.

Ingredients :
  • 80 ml (1/3 cup) vegetable oil
  • 120 ml (1/2 cup) honey 
  • 178 grams (1 1/2 cup) whole wheat flour

  • 2 large eggs 
  • 2-3 ( about 225 grams) bananas, mashed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) milk
  • 60 grams brown sugar + 1 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
Preparation :

  1. Preheat oven for 170 C.
  2. Grease a loaf pan ( I was using 21x7x8 cm loaf pan) with butter. Set aside.
  3. In a bowl, mix together whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon. Set aside.
  4. In a big bowl, whisk together honey and oil.
  5. Add eggs, mashed banana, vanilla extract, and milk into the mixture and beat them all together until well combined.
  6. Add all the dry ingredients mixture into wet mixture and stir them together just until they are combined.
  7. Pour the batter into greased loaf pan.
