Ultimate Carrot and Banana Bread with all the Good Stuff / Ultimativni kruh od mrkve i banane sa svim finim stvarima

I know, I know, there are a ton of banana bread recipes on this blog already. But this one is a winner. It’s loaded with healthy things like bananas, carrots, oats, flax seeds and walnuts. There’s only a tiny bit of sugar in it. And then there is chocolate, which makes it taste like the most decadent treat. But not overwhelmingly decadent. So don’t feel guilty for having a slice or two of this goodness for breakfast. Because that’s, in fact, exactly what you should do. Have this lovely bread for breakfast, brunch, with afternoon coffee, or with anything in between.

Also, a small note for all you lazy people out there. You can do most of the prepping stuff in a food processor, like making oat flour, chopping walnuts, shredding carrots, mashing banana and whisking eggs and yogurt. Yup, I am completely shameless when it comes to minimizing kitchen work. 😀

METHOD:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a loaf pan with butter and line with baking sheet. Set aside. In a bowl whisk together flours, walnuts, flax seeds, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Mash up bananas in a separate bowl. Whisk in eggs, yogurt and vanilla, then stir in melted butter and shredded carrots. Pour the wet stuff over dry mixture and stir to combine. Finally, fold in raisins and chocolate chunks. Transfer the batter to a prepared pan and even out with a spatula. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes, until a skewer inserted in the bread comes out clean (a crumb or two are also fine). Allow the bread to cool completely in the pan before removing and slicing.

Znam, sve znam, već imam cijelu hrpu recepata za kruh od banane na ovom blogu. Ali ovaj je pobjednik. Pun je zdravih sastojaka kao što su banane, mrkva, zob, lan i orasi te ima samo mrvicu šećera. I onda još dolazi čokolada, zbog koje ovaj kruh ima okus dekadentne poslastice. Ali ne i pretjerano dekadentne. Tako da se ne osjećate krivima ako se sa šnitom ovog divnog kruha počastite za doručak. Jer zapravo, to je ono što i trebate napraviti. Uživajte u ovom kruhu za doručak, brunch, sa popodnevnom kavom ili bilo kada između.

Također, mala napomena za sve vas ljenguze. Većinu pripreme možete napraviti u multipraktiku, kao što je mljevenje zobenih pahuljica u brašno, sjeckanje oraha, ribanje mrkve, gnječenje banane i miksanje jaja i jogurta. Tako je, nemam ni malo srama kada treba minimizirati poslove u kuhinji. 😀

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 štrucu / 34,82 kn)

Za smjesu:

1 šalica zobenog brašna (1,50 kn)

1 šalica integralnog brašna (0,75 kn)

1 šalica sjeckanih oraha (7,50 kn)

3 žlice mljevenih sjemenki lana (0,75 kn)

3 žlice smeđeg šećera (0,75 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

½ žličice sode bikarbone (0,01 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

3 banane (6,00 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

1 šalica jogurta (2,50 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

4 žlice maslaca, rastopljene (4,00 kn)

1 šalica ribane mrkve (1,25 kn)

2/3 šalice grožđica (2,00 kn)

2/3 šalice komadića čokolade (4,00 kn)

Dodatno:

Maslac za namastiti kalup (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. Namastite kalup za kruh, obložite papirom za pečenje i stavite na stranu. U zdjeli pomiješajte brašna, orahe, lan, šećer, prašak za pecivo, sodu bikarbonu i sol.

U drugoj posudi zgnječite banane. Umutite u kašu od banana jaja, jogurt i vaniliju, pa umiješajte rastopljeni maslac i ribanu mrkvu. Prelijte mokre sastojke preko suhih i promiješajte da se sve sjedini. Konačno, nježno umiješajte grožđice i čokoladu. Preselite smjesu u pripremljeni kalup i poravnajte špatulom. Pecite 1 sat i 10 minuta dok čačkalica umetnuta u kruh ne bude čista (mrvica – dvije su isto ok). Pustite da se kruh skroz ohladi prije nego ga izvadite iz kalupa i razrežete.
