Serves: 8
  • 1 ¾ cups flour (241 g)
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Beat together:
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil or any light oil
  • 4 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
  • 1 ¼ cups mashed very ripe bananas (about 2 ½ large bananas, 305 g)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar (152 g)
  • ¼ cup skim milk (57 g)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

  2. Combine and stir together flour, baking soda, salt and ground cinnamon.
  3. In a small bowl, beat eggs with a fork, then add canola oil beating until incorporated, then add melted butter, beating further until well blended.
  4. Add lemon juice to the mashed bananas mixing well, then add sugar beating well with a rubber spatula.
