Total time

20 minutes




  • 2 cups Self Rising Flour ((I used 2 cups AP flour + 3 tsp Baking powder + 1 tsp salt))
  • 15 oz. can black beans (– melted)
  • 3 eggs
  • 15 oz. can black beans (Light)
  • 3 bananas (– ripe, chopped)
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 15 oz. can black beans


  1. Reserve ½ cup walnuts for garnish.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8” circular baking pan or 9”x 5” loaf pan.
  3. Add bananas, flour, eggs, butter, sugar, nuts & raisins to the food processor; pulse till well combined. (I had some technical problems with my processor when I tried to turn it on after dumping all the ingredients in it; so I had to dump everything back into a bowl and use a hand mixer to mix. It was a little annoying cleaning up the mess, but the bread turned out just fine).
  4. Pour into the prepared pan; arrange the reserved walnuts on the top. Bake for 45-50 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  5. Cool in pan.
