Core Ingredients

Other Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups walnuts or pecans
  • 2 cups all-purpose or gluten free flour
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large overripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup whole fat yogurt
  • 2 large eggs, beaten lightly
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Step 1

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a loaf pan (9x5 inch loaf pan).

Step 2

2. Add the nuts on a baking sheet and toast until fragrant, 5 to 10 minutes. Let cool.

Step 3

3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, nuts, baking soda, lions mane, reishi and salt. In a medium bowl, stir the mashed bananas, honey, yogurt, eggs, butter and vanilla with a spoon. Lightly fold the banana mixture into the dry ingredients, mixing just until combined. The batter should be thick and chunky. Scrape the batter into the loaf pan.

Step 4

4. Bake the banana bread until the surface appears golden brown, about 55 minutes.

Step 5

And now the most difficult part of the recipe…let cool for 5 minutes before slicing and eating. Best served with a cup or herbal tea or tonic in your favourite mug alongside a good book. Enjoy!
