This banana bread has a lovely texture thanks to the figs and nuts, and the banana provides a little sweetness, but not too much.  Tip: Make sure you use very ripe bananas in this recipe.

We have used white flour in preparing this, however for a more nutritious bread you can use wholemeal. Tip: If you use wholemeal flour, you will need a little more liquid like milk or add a little Greek yoghurt and it will take longer to cook.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 8 dried figs, diced
  • 1 egg
  • ┬╝ cup milk
  • Sprinkle nutmeg
  • Sprinkle cinnamon
  • Sprinkle all spice powder
  • 3 tbsp. walnuts, crumbled

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Line a loaf tin with baking paper, spray a little cooking spray if needed.
  2. In a large mixing bowl place your banana and mash with a fork. Drizzle you honey over and mix. Add diced figs, mix in with banana.
  3. In another bowl sift your flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, all spice powder. Once sifted mix in stages with banana mix. Add egg and milk and keep mixing until all combined. Sprinkle in 2 tbsp. walnuts then mix these in.
  4. Place your mix into loaf tin then sprinkle remaining walnuts over the top and bake for 25-30 minutes, depending on your oven.
