Banana Avocado Bread
Banana and avocado is a winning combination for babies so it’s not surprising they make a delicious loaf together. The avocado provides a nutrient rich alternative to the saturated fat laden butter and gives a lovely, lighter, softer texture that is simply yummy. Simply slice into fingers for a tasty snack or freeze for the kids’ lunchboxes.
For babies under 12months substiute the honey with maple syrup or sugar due to the risk of botulism.
Nutrition Note: A slightly different take on banana bread which provides a higher fibre, more nutritious loaf containing heart healthy monounsaturated fat. Kids will love it in their lunchboxes.

- 1 cup plain flour
- 1 cup wholemeal plain flour
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 ripe avocado, mashed
- 1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup or sugar)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and grease and line a 23x13cm loaf tin. -
Place the flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl and stir to combine. -
Place the eggs, banana, avocado, honey and vanilla in a separate bowl. -
Add the banana avocado mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. -
Pour the mixture into the loaf tin and bake in the oven for about 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. If the loaf is browning too fast, cover with foil for the remainder of the cooking time. Allow to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and serve, or freeze in individual portions. -
