Save Time and Money Without Scrimping on Taste

I have been making this delicious bread in my oven for some time now, but I've discovered that I can easily make it in my bread machine. This way, I can just leave it and come back to it when it's done.

During this pandemic, I thought I would have more time on my hands to do some baking and other hobbies, but the work-from-home arrangement has somehow made my schedule more hectic. I've found that my trusty bread machine has been a real time saver! Moreover, I don't need to toss my overripe bananas into my trash bin. I can use them to make delicious and healthy banana bread for breakfast or snacks.


  • 1 teaspoon vanilla paste
  • 1/4 cup pomace olive oil
  • 2 medium eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 medium bananas, mashed
  • 2 tablespoons agave syrup, or as desired
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons milled flaxseed
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup mixed nuts, roughly chopped

Banana bread flour mixture


  1. Add all the wet ingredients in the bread machine pail following the order in the list.
  2. In a separate bowl, add the dry ingredients, except the nuts, and mix with a whisk.
  3. In another bowl, get 1 tablespoon of flour from the banana bread flour mixture and toss the chopped nuts in it.
  4. Carefully add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in the pail.
  5. Choose the "express bake" setting (or the equivalent on your bread machine). Choose "light color" for the crust (I like my banana bread with medium-colored crust, though).
  6. Press "start."
  7. After about 5 minutes, add the chopped nuts.
  8. Wait for your bread machine to finish baking your bread.

Baking Tips

  • Use a whisk to mix the dry ingredients to ensure that the ingredients are well mixed. A whisk is also a good choice when mixing flour for cakes to skip sifting the flour.
  • Tossing the nuts or other add-ins to your bread or cake will prevent the add-ins from sinking to the bottom of the batter.
