- 1 cup (250 mL) whole barley flour
- ½ cup (125 mL) all-purpose flour
- 1 cup (250 mL) granulated sugar
- 2 tsp (10 mL) baking powder
- 1 tsp (5 mL) baking soda
- 1/3 cup (75 mL) canola oil
- ¼ cup (50 mL) applesauce
- 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla
- 3 ripe bananas, mashed (1 ½ cups (375 mL))
Lightly spray a 9 x 5 inch (2 L) loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray or line with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, combine flours, sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Combine canola oil, applesauce and vanilla with bananas and add to dry ingredients, stirring until mixture is lumpy but just blended. Pour batter into pan. Bake in a preheated 350°F (180°C) oven for 50 to 55 minutes or until loaf is golden brown on top and a cake tester or toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes. Then turn loaf out of pan and cool on rack.
Makes about 16 slices.
