Yes..still on rest duties so really My Love should be writing this posting but is blog shy so it's a joint effort. lol. My Love found this recipe during a search for baking recipes that would be Salicylate Free or Low. The recipe was found on and for the original recipe on that blog click here.

2 Delicious Joy's Banana Bread Loaves..can you smell the banana? lol
My Love had to adapt it quite a bit but it wasn't a hassle..for the original recipe and all the various options..i.e Gluten Free..etc click the link above. I am posting the adapted recipe as My Love made it.

It's a beautiful banana bread..let me tell you. I've had two pieces so I should It looks like it's going to be quite dense but it's's light and so tasty. It would be easy to become addicted to this loaf. lol. My Love chose to make two loaves so there would be some to freeze for when a work snack is needed in the future. And it really did make two good size loaves. If you are struggling with willpower right now..this probably isn't the recipe for you..just yet It smelt divine..

Joy's Banana Bread close won't last
Joy's Banana Bread Makes 1 loaf
(Recipe adapted from

3/4 cup golden caster sugar or 3/4 tsp powdered stevia
1/2 cup of vegan margarine or oil (ML used Sunflower oil)
3 bananas, mashed with 1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp soya milk
1/2 tsp baking powder or 1/4 tsp baking soda with 1/2 tsp lemon juice (ML used the latter)
1 3/4 cups wholemeal flour
pinch of salt

Pre-heat the oven to 350'F/180'C/Gas Mark 4 and line a loaf pan with parchment paper.

In a large bowl stir all the ingredients together and when combined pour into the loaf tin. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Checking at the 40 minute mark as it depends on your oven etc.

Leave to cool in the tins and then turn out. Leave as long as your willpower will allow you before you cut into it. lol. Enjoy!

Thanks for Mudspice for sharing a great recipe...
