Apple Banana Bread

This banana bread has lots of extra juiciness and sweetness from the delicious apples!

We are super lucky in the UK, that apples can be grown all year through which makes them a sustainable fruit to be eating. Depending on what apples you can get gives a different flavour - some are super sweet or juicier or even a little bitter. For this recipe I prefer to use Braeburn, Cox or Pink Lady apples as I like the balance of green and red on the skin :) Apples and bananas pair well together as they both have different textures and levels of sweetness which is great in an easy banana bread recipe. Grating the apple makes it easier to distribute that moisture and having some in cubes gives a little crunch. I recommend a spread of almond butter to balance out that sweetness!

✿Preheat the oven to 180℃ and grease and line a 2lb loaf tin with baking paper.
In a bowl, mash the bananas with a fork then mix with the flax egg, butter and brown sugar.
Stir in the flour and spices, then grate one of the apples and fold through the batter.
Spoon the batter into the prepared loaf tin spreading out evenly. Chop up the remaining apple and scatter on top of the batter -you may only need half of the other apple.
Place in the oven to bake for 25 minutes, then cover with foil and continue to bake another 25-30 minutes until a knife inserted comes out clean. 
Leave to cool in the loaf tin before removing and slicing. Best kept covered at room temperature up to 5 days. Enjoy!
