  • 4 large ripe bananas, well mashed (1-3/4 cups)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts


  • Preheat your oven to 350F degrees and grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix the bananas and eggs together until they are well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, whole wheat pastry flour, sugar, salt and baking powder until well combined.
  • Stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture, just until blended and then stir in the walnuts.
  • Put the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread it out evenly.
  • Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with just a few moist crumbs.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for about 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, remove the loaf from the pan and let it cool completely on a wire rack.

Recipe Notes

My loaf took about 1 hour and 5 minutes to be done. It was still a little underdone at 1 hour.
This low fat banana bread is great warm or cooled, however you like it best.
