Super Healthy Banana Bread Recipe – And A Beautiful Sydney Cookbook

Do you ever read a recipe and just know you have to make it straight away?

This one was like that. Super, super healthy and sounded outrageously delicious… and it is.

No butter, no sugar… just wholesome bananas, honey, nuts and spices. My teenagers love this.

The wee twins would still go for the not-so-healthy Easy Moist Banana Cake though.

I added whole walnuts and then used stick mixer to break up, but next time I will chop them first.

Quite a heavy cake, very nutritious and utterly delicious. Recipe here.

If this sounds just too outrageously healthy, do check out the Easy Moist Banana Cake recipe, it’s a cracker.

avalon food cookbookI found the recipe in a wonderful new book called ‘Avalon Food.’ It’s such a beautiful book, and it’s all been done for a good cause.

The book has been created and produced by parents and friends of Avalon Public School and sales of the book raise funds for the school.  You can read more about the book and buy it here.

Avalon is a gorgeous small beach suburb on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. It attracts a lot of creative people, as you can see from the quality of this gorgeous cookbook.

The photography in the book is marvellous and there are heaps of recipes I am keen to try.

      Thanks Carolyn, it really is a beautiful book. That cake was gobbled up rather swiftly too.

    I love cake. Too, too much. So I am always looking for healthy cakes – this one ‘takes the cake’. (Sorry.)

      It is very, very nutrient dense, so in theory you only need a small slice… but in practice a BIG slice is better!
