Honey Banana Bread or Muffins
Time Required: 10 (30 min. total)

It’s amazing how great these taste with just 1/2 c. of chocolate chips, and its easy to put them in without guilt when there is no butter, oil, or granulated sugar in the recipe.  Save time using pancake mix for the flour and leavening, and our GF Bulk Pancake Mix has the extra bonus of high protein *garbanzo bean flour.  Enjoy a delicious banana, hearty, whole wheat flavor for your breakfast or snack, and you might as well just double the recipe because they freeze well and go fast. 


1 cup(s) banana(s) -- medium spotted, mashed
1/2 cup(s) water
1/3 cup(s) applesauce
1/4 cup(s) honey -- up to 1/2 c. for extra sweetness
2 cup(s) whole wheat pastry flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 cup(s) walnuts -- coarsely chopped
1/2 cup(s) chocolate chips -- OPTIONAL


1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease the bottom of a loaf pan or 15 muffin cups.

2.  Mix bananas, water, applesauce and honey together in a mixing bowl.

3.  Sprinkle all other ingredients over top and mix just until combined.

4.  Put batter in pan and bake 35-40 min. for a loaf, or 20 min. for muffins. 

5.  Pop out with a fork and allow to cool on a wire rack or counter top.

Pancake Mix Option:  Save time and replace the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt with 2 c. of OTL Bulk Pancake Mix, or OTL GF Bulk Pancake Mix. (see recipe tab “Breakfast”)
Topping Option:  Good with grated cheese on top of warm muffins if not using chocolate chips.

* Garbanzo bean flour has 5x as much fiber as white flour,  and approx. 30% more protein and iron than both whole wheat and white flour.
