Healthy Blueberry and Banana Bread  

Kids love cooking, and making a mess! Here is a healthy recipe from Live Lighter which you can make with the kids and use for school lunch boxes. 

  • olive or canola oil spray
  • 4 ripe bananas, peeled
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • Preheat oven to 220ºC (200ºC fan forced). Spray a 20 x 10cm loaf tin with oil; line base and sides with non-stick baking paper
  • Reserve one whole banana for presentation and mash remaining 3 bananas in a large bowl 
  • Add sugar, milk and eggs and mix with a fork until well combined
  • Sift flours and cinnamon on top of banana mixture
  • Mix ingredients together until just combined, taking care not to over-mix, then gently fold through blueberries
  • Spoon mixture into prepared loaf tin and smooth the surface. Slice remaining banana thinly and put slices on the top of the loaf 
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes then cover with foil and bake for a further 20 minutes. Centre of loaf will remain moist but not wet when tested with a skewer. Allow to cool in tin for 5 minutes then turn onto a wire rack
