¾ cup packed light brown sugar
¼ cup canola oil
2 large egg
3 mashed ripe banana
1 ¼ cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
¾ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
1 ¼ cup blueberry, fresh or frozen
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
- Whisk buttermilk, brown sugar, oil and eggs in a large bowl. Stir in mashed bananas.
- Whisk whole-wheat pastry flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and nutmeg in a medium bowl.
- Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Fold in blueberries. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan.
- Bake until the top is golden brown and a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack. Let cool for about 2 hours before slicing.
Muffin Variation: Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat 12 (1/2 cup) muffin cups with cooking spray or line with paper liners. Divide the batter among the muffin cups (they will be full). Bake until the tops are golden brown and a wooden skewer inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove and let cool on a wire rack for at least 5 minutes more before serving.
Ingredient note: Whole-wheat pastry flour, lower in protein than regular whole-wheat flour, has less gluten-forming potential, making it a better choice for tender baked goods. You can find it in the natural-foods section of large supermarkets and natural-foods stores. Store in the freezer.
To Make Ahead: Wrap and store at room temperature for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
