  • 2 cups flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 whole eggs lightly beaten
  • 3 bananas mashed
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1 cup quinoa cooked
  1. Measure dry ingredients into a bowl and mix together

  3. Fold in bananas

  4. Mix in dry ingredients

  5. Mix in quinoa

  6. Spray loaf pans and divide batter between pans

Recipe Notes

I used four mini loaf pans. If using large pans increase baking time by 5-10 minutes. 

Test for doneness with a toothpick inserted into the middle of a loaf. If toothpick comes out clean, the bread is done.
