Getting kids involved in the kitchen is a great way for them to get to know new foods and fiddle around with them.
This banana bread is really easy to make and its sweetness comes purely from the bananas. Feel free to let the kids help out, and you can always change the toppings and flavours to open kids up to new textures and tastes.
50g wholewheat flour
50g almond meal (equal amounts of rye or wholewheat flour also works fine)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 medium ripe banana
Nuts & seeds
(the list is endless….)
Preheat the oven to 180 Celsius. Line a small baking pan or an oven-proof container with baking paper.
Sift the flours, baking powder into a large bowl. If you’re planning you add some flavour, such as cocoa powder, do so now and mix well. In a separate bowl mash the banana with a fork, add the eggs, and beat them together.Add the wet ingredients to the flour and mix well.
Pour the mixture into the pan and even it out with a spoon or spatula. Top with nuts, fruits or anything you like and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.
Slightly cool it on a rack and enjoy warm.
Leftovers can be put in the fridge for a few days, but trust me, they won’t last that long.
