Cardamom-Ginger Whole Wheat Banana Bread



I have been experimenting with whole wheat flour for some time now and always ending up with dry, dense, and flavorless banana bread. After countless tries, I was beginning to really despise whole wheat flour, but committed to finding a recipe that works! At last here it is, an authentic banana bread recipe loaded with delicious spices baked to perfection on whole wheat bread.

This healthy banana bread is moist, refined-sugar free and a great alternative to classic recipes using white flour or sugar. Using whole wheat flour increases the overall fiber, vitamin, protein, and healthy fats intake. Make a batch and share a few slices with your friends they won't believe it's healthy! This recipe is a keeper for sure and I'm sure you and your family will like it as much as I do.


Recipe yields one loaf.

• 2 cups whole wheat flour
• 1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1 tsp cardamom
• 1 tsp ginger
• 1 cup mashed bananas (the riper the better!)
• 2 eggs
• 1/2 cup honey
• 1/3 cup buttermilk (I used 1/3 cup soy milk mixed with 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
• 1/3 cup olive oil
• 1 tbs pure vanilla extract
