Baby Led Weaning Banana bread recipe

So, after the first time I go out super late to watch my husband’s band play, the baby is awake early and completely misses her morning nap. So, what to do now that I’m up? Bake.

I went searching online for something sugar-free to bake so that I could also pack some in the freezer for future baby feedings. I found the original recipe here, but I tweaked it a little to suit my tastes (I always add more spices than the recipe says) and contents of my kitchen.

Oh, and the little one loved it!

Sugar-free banana bread

Mix together:

  • 4 mashed bananas
  • 1/3 cup of oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • two eggs worth of a bit of extra oil and water (since I didn’t have any eggs)

Then add,

  • 2 cups of flour (I used 1/2 plain 1/2 wholemeal)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg

I can’t give you the exact temperature, because my crazy oven doesn’t have a temperature guage. It just has ‘hot’ and ‘crazy hot’. But it was around 180 for about 30 minutes.

I’m starting to wonder why I ever bake with sugar now… it should just be bananas all the way. Just like my pikelets.

(Can anyone tell me what the difference is between banana bread and banana cake? I’ve been wondering for a while…)

    I always thought the difference was in the shape of the pan, and whether there was icing or glaze on it, versus just plain.
