I had quite a few oranges and bananas that needed to be used.... Instead of making a traditional banana bread I thought I should mix it up a bit and combine oranges and bananas together and it turned out great!!!


  • 3/4 cup of organic cane sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 medium ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup of orange juice
  • 1 tsp of orange zest
  • 1 1/2 cup of flour
  • 3/4 tsp of baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/2 cup of walnuts
  • 1 pinch of salt


Preheat the oven at 350F degrees, and grease a rectangular bread pan.

In a medium bowl whisk together the sugar, oil and egg. Add the orange juice and zest as well as the mashed bananas.

In another bowl combine the flour, baking soda and powder and the salt. Gently transfer the dry ingredients into the banana batter and mix until just combined. Add in the walnuts, give it another stir then transfer to the greased pan.

Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let it cool for a few minutes then slice and enjoy. I love these kind of bread for breakfast with 1 tbsp of 2 of nut butter, yum!
