Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Butter two 8x4-inch loaf pans.

  • Whisk whole wheat flour, flaxseed meal, wheat germ, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together in a large bowl. Stir walnuts into dry ingredients.

  • Beat eggs and brown sugar in a separate bowl with an electric mixer until thick and pale, about 3 minutes. Add sunflower seed oil, walnut oil, and yogurt; beat to combine. Stir in mashed bananas and vanilla extract.

  • Pour egg mixture over dry ingredients and mix briefly, until just moistened. Divide batter between loaf pans.

  • Bake loaves in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the centers comes out clean, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Remove pans from the oven and let sit 5 minutes, then remove loaves to cool on wire racks.

Cook's Note:

Substitute turbinado sugar for the brown sugar if desired.

It was good and this is how i changed it (as one does!) to what I had on hand. I used organic all purpose flour. 1/2 cup avocado oil, 1 stick browned butter. reduced the temp to 300 as I used smaller glass bakeware (4) and I noticed they were browning after 20 min. They turned out good and they have some healthy ingredients. So i can feel good about that. would love to reduce the sugar content even know it didn't taste overly sweet. Great way to use up the bananers. Would LOVE to submit a picture but website wont let me. Read More
