    20. Coffee Toffee Banana Bread

    This banana bread has a subtle coffee taste along with a subtle toffee taste that not only gives it a rhyming name but makes it a little more special than regular banana bread.

    Preparation Time: 1 hour

    Ingredients:

    • 3 large ripe bananas, mashed (about 1¼ cup)
    • ½ cup brewed strong coffee
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup whole wheat flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • ½ teaspoon baking soda
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
    • ¼ teaspoon of nutmeg
    • 1 tablespoon of instant espresso
    • ¼ cup of extra-virgin olive oil
    • ¾ cup of packed dark brown sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1½ teaspoons of pure vanilla extract
    • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons of toffee bits (such as Skor or Heath bits, found in stores with the chocolate chips), divided
    • ¼ cup of chopped banana chips (optional)

    Method:

    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and spray a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with non-stick spray.
    2. Mix banana and coffee in a small bowl.
    3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and instant espresso.
    4. In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil and brown sugar. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. 
    5.  Add the vanilla extract and the banana-coffee mixture and stir until combined.
    6. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring with a wooden spoon or a spatula until just incorporated. Fold in ½ cup toffee bits.
    7. Pour mixture into prepared loaf pan and bake for 25 minutes.
    8. Remove from the oven, sprinkle the top of the loaf with the remaining toffee bits and banana chips, then return to the oven for an additional 25 to 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
    9. Don’t worry about getting all the banana chips on top of the loaf if they don’t all fit; you don’t want to weigh down the top of the loaf too much to make sure it bakes evenly inside.
    10. Let it stand in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely, then slice.
