Banana Hemp Loaf


This banana loaf is nourishing enough for breakfast and just sweet enough for dessert. It keeps for a couple of days covered and it only gets more moist and sweet over time. I use this recipe when I have guests who do not eat eggs and can substitute the butter for coconut oil for vegans.


Makes: 12 slices

Takes: 20 minutes plus baking time

1/3 cup melted butter

1 cup mashed ripe banana -- (4 medium)

1/4 cup honey

3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup hemp seeds -- optional

2 tablespoons chia seeds optional

butter for pans

Optional Glaze: 2 tbsp melted butter with 1/4 cup icing sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 2 tbsp Grand Marnier.


Combine banana, butter and honey in a mixer and beat for 2 minutes.


Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl; stir well. Add dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened. Spoon batter into two loaf pans that have been buttered.


Bake at 325 Convection degrees for 40-50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes, and remove from pan. Cool 15 minutes on a wire rack then add glaze if using.


For Optional Glaze: Whisk 2 tbsp melted butter with 1/4 cup icing sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 2 tbsp Grand Marnier. Pour over loaf
