This hearty loaf is a healthy rendition of the classical banana bread. Serves as an excellent start to any day, and is great for an afternoon tea. Figs can be substituted with dates or raisins.

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two 8.5 x4.5 inch pans.
  2. Mix together the eggs, soy milk, brown sugar, oil, and mashed bananas in a bowl until evenly blended; set aside. In a large bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon; pour in the egg mixture, and stir just until combined. Divide batter into prepared pans.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 55 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I had a bucket of dried figs sitting around and didn't know what to do with them. This recipe was perfect. The figs made the loaf moist with a good texture and compliment the flavour of bananas nicely. The only change I made was to add some walnuts, which were a nice touch. I will definately make this again!

This was very good and moist, but I save 5 stars for amazing. I used 3/4 cups fresh figs instead of dried and 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, regular milk and white flour (what I had on hand). I think if I make it again, I will reduce the amount of cinnamon and add other spices, like maybe nutmeg or allspice, for a richer flavor.

My only changes were to use regular milk instead of soy, and I chopped and soaked my figs in the microwave for a minute in a little water to soften them up. It made a dense, moist loaf, pefectly, lightly sweet. I used the olive oil and didn't notice a flavor change, but appreciated the healthier oil ingredient. Recipe is a keeper, thanks!
