Quinoa Banana Bread
Banana bread made healthier with added quinoa.
Servings: 4 mini loaves
- 2 cups flour
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 2 whole eggs lightly beaten
- 3 bananas mashed
- 1 cup sugar
- ½ cup butter melted
- 1 cup cooked quinoa cooked and cooled
Measure dry ingredients into a bowl and mix together
In another bowl, mix eggs, sugar and butter together
Fold in bananas
Mix in dry ingredients
Mix in quinoa
Spray loaf pans and divide batter between 4 mini loaf pans
Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes.
Use cooked and cooled quinoa - you need one cup of already cooked quinoa for the bread.
I used four mini loaf pans. If using large pans increase baking time by 5-10 minutes.
Cut each mini loaf into 8 slices.
Test for doneness with a toothpick inserted into the middle of a loaf. If toothpick comes out clean, the bread is done.
