Baby's Banana Muffin Loaf I & II

My baby loves bananas, and that's why bananas are always available in the house. However, as much as the baby can eat, I still have about 10 bananas that are way too ripe to eat. So, I make them into banana muffin loaves for my baby's breakfast and afternoon snack.

 The original recipe is actually for baking banana muffins but I adapt it into baking muffin loaves. For the first loaf, I use all-purpose flour and oats flour. For the second loaf, I use self-raising flour.

This is banana muffin loaf version one, i.e. baked with all-purpose flour and oats flour.


Banana Muffin Loaf

Recipe adapted from Journal of a nutritionist mom.

Ingredients:

5 medium ripe bananas, peeled and mashed
1/3 cup molasses sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup virgin coconut oil
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour + 1/2 cup oats flour


How to:

1. Preheat oven to 170°C for at least 10 minutes.

2. Grease a disposable loaf tin with vegetable oil / cooking spray (optional). Set aside.

3. In a medium bowl, combine mashed banana, molasses sugar, egg, and virgin coconut oil. Set aside.

4. In a separate bowl, mix together all-purpose flour, oats flour, baking powder, and salt.

5. Combine wet ingredients (in step 1) with dry ingredients (in step 2).

6. Pour into prepared loaf tin. Bake at 170°C for approximately 25-30 minutes.


Ready to be baked.


So, this is banana muffin loaf version one. Those cracks are so unsightly. Haha.

Now, let's look at banana muffin loaf version two, i.e. baked with self-raising flour.


Banana Muffin Loaf

Ingredients:

5 medium ripe bananas, peeled and mashed
1/4 cup molasses sugar (reduced from 1/3 cup)
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup virgin coconut oil (reduced from 1/3 cup)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder (reduced from 2 teaspoons)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 & 1/2 cups self-raising flour


How to:

1. Preheat oven to 170°C for at least 10 minutes.

2. Grease a disposable loaf tin with vegetable oil / cooking spray (optional). Set aside.

3. In a medium bowl, combine mashed banana, molasses sugar, egg, and virgin coconut oil. Set aside.

4. In a separate bowl, mix together self-raising flour, baking powder, and salt.

5. Combine wet ingredients (in step 1) with dry ingredients (in step 2).

6. Pour into prepared loaf tin. Bake at 170°C for approximately 25-30 minutes.


So, this is banana muffin loaf version two. Less cracks and more presentable.

Taste wise, both loaves have the crumble-in-your-mouth texture, which is how individual muffins are supposed to be. I prefer the second loaf because it is less sweet and doesn't have the aftertaste of baking powder.
