Banana Apple and Walnut Bread

The Vitamin G blog over at Glamour has found yet another banana bread recipe to share with everyone. This one is from Zoe at Zomte Bakes.

Banana Apple & Walnut Bread


2 large bananas, mashed
1 apple, grated (with skin on)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup apple sauce
1/4 cup sugar (she used a product called LoGiCane)
1 cup whole grain spelt flour
3/4 cup almond meal
1 tbsp baking powder (aluminum/gluten free)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped


Mix the mashed bananas with the sugar, and beat in the egg. Fold the grated apple and spices through. Combine the almond meal and mix thoroughly. Sift the flour and baking powder and gently fold through until nearly combined. Add the walnut and fold a few more times. (Do not over mix or you will toughen the gluten in the flour.) Spray a loaf dish with canola oil and line with a sheet of baking paper. Spoon the mixture in and flatten the top. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30-40 minutes or until the top is lightly browned.
