  • 95 ml Coconut oil (melted if it's solid)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 120 g powdered jaggery
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 medium-large ripe bananas
  • 90 g whole wheat flour
  • 90 g all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 tbsp black sesame seeds (for sprinkling on top)


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 C, grease and line a standard (9x5 inch) loaf pan and set aside.

  2. In a medium-sized bowl, sift the flours, baking powder, spices and salt. Set aside.

  3. Add the oil, eggs, powdered jaggery, vanilla and bananas into a blender and blend until smooth.

  4. Create a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the blended liquid into it. Mix gently until well combined, do not over mix.

  5. Pour this mixture into the prepared loaf pan and sprinkle the top with black sesame seeds. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean. Let the loaf cool inside the pan for at least 20 minutes before removing and letting it cool completely on a wire rack.

  6. Slice and serve with a hot cup of coffee or tea. Or, slather on some homemade salted caramel sauce to make it dessert worthy.

Recipe Notes

You may substitute Olive oil instead of Coconut oil in this recipe if you are not a fan of the coconut flavour. Just make sure you use a, light olive oil and not extra virgin.

You may use any form of unrefined powdered sweetener if you cannot get your hands on powdered jaggery. I would suggest not to use any liquid sweetener as the consistency of the batter may vary.
