Eggless Wholewheat, Ragi (Finger Millet Or Red Millet) And Banana Bread

Eggless Wholewheat, Ragi (Finger Millet  Or Red Millet) And Banana Bread

Whenever I go to the restaurant for a buffet breakfast, I am tempted to eat the banana bread they serve. This bread is super soft, moist and moreover packed with the goodness of banana. Many of us don’t like to consume banana in its original form and so this bread is an alternate way to eat bananas. I personally don’t eat bananas, but can happily enjoy the warm banana bread with a cup of hot tea. I just wanted to bake this bread at home.

I have tried baking it with eggs. The results of baking with eggs is always good. But I wanted to bake an eggless banana cake.  I also wanted it to be healthy. I have used here whole wheat flour, the finger millet or red millet (ragi ) flour, honey, ripe bananas, milk powder, nuts and oil. The bananas tend to become sweeter once they are ripe and so I have not added extra sugar to it. I have used honey for  extra sweetness. The quantity of banana depends on their size. Use three bananas if they are big in size or else use four bananas. But the bananas should be ripe. I have shown the pic of the bananas I have used. The skin of the bananas should have black spots. As I have used the finger millet flour, the bread is dark in colour. I have used milk powder to get the crumb like texture of bread.

If you do not have ragi you can try this cake with soya bean flour. You can also use entire whole wheat flour or all purpose flour to it.

This healthy banana cake is a good option for the kids lunch box. My son likes to apply nutella over it and enjoy it as a treat. It really tastes super delicious.

Here is the step by step recipe of this wonderful, delicious, healthy , super soft and moist banana bread.

    Loved the texture of the bread in the pic. I would love to try it but I do not have the milk powder. Do we have an alternative for milk powder?
