Low GI foods can help maintain a better blood sugar and insulin control, increase your energy and improve your mood.

This is a healthy alternative to a regular banana bread and a great morning tea or breakfast snack in pregnancy.

 

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup all bran
  • ½ cup skim milk
  • 1 cup sifted wholemeal flour
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup unprocessed oat bran
  • 3 med or 2 large bananas
  • 1 egg
  • 30 gms butter
  • 2 tablespoon Honey
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
  • (optional: Extra walnuts to sprinkle on top of loaf)

 

Method:

Preheat the oven to 160°C. Soak the all bran in skim milk for 30 mins and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas, and combine with honey, soft butter and 1 egg.

In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, unprocessed oat bran and baking powder. Next, add the bran and all the milk to the flour mixture and stir well. When you have a well-combined mixture, stir this into your banana mix and add the walnuts.

Once your mixture is thoroughly combined, place it in a lightly greased loaf tin or tin lined with baking paper. Cook for 45 mins at 160°C, or until cooked through. Once the cooking is complete, be sure to allow the tin to cool before removing the banana loaf.
