This hearty loaf is a healthy rendition of the classical banana bread. Serves as an excellent start to any day, and is great for an afternoon tea. Figs can be substituted with dates or raisins.
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two 8.5 x4.5 inch pans.
Mix together the eggs, soy milk, brown sugar, oil, and mashed bananas in a bowl until evenly blended; set aside. In a large bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon; pour in the egg mixture, and stir just until combined. Divide batter into prepared pans.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 55 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

To make this in a dough , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be done in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can work it yesterday , then finish it off the next day.
