Wholemeal banana bread recipe

This wholemeal banana bread recipe is so rich and yummy, the kids won't even notice it's made with wholemeal flour. It's perfect for lunch boxes.



  • 1/2 cup (125g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup (200g) brown sugar
  • 2 cups (300g) wholemeal self-raising flour


Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced). Line a loaf pan with baking paper and set aside.
In a bowl, mix the butter, mashed bananas, vanilla essence, eggs and brown sugar. Fold in flour until just combined.
Bake for 40 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. Leave to cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then cool further on a wire rack.
