Very ripe bananas add a natural sweetness to this quick bread. Milled flaxseed and walnuts add fibre. Use your favourite nuts and try substituting some of the self-raising flour for wholemeal.
This is a wonderful banana bread. I did not have any flax seed meal, so made my own by putting flax seeds in the food processor. Also added 2 teaspoons of banana extract. BUT there must be an error in the bake time, wondering whether this is a publishing error as after 25 minutes like the recipe states my cake was still total goo! Had to cook for a total for 65 minutes. - 05 Feb 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Great recipe and super easy. I baked mine in my bread machine using the quick breads setting and it came out beautifully. This is now my official "go to" banana bread recipe. - 05 Jan 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I added a tsp. of vanilla, 1/2 tsp. of nutmeg and cinnamon to the batter. Baked for a hour@ 325. - 09 Jun 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
