  • Brown Butter Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons dried lavender
  • ½ cup butter
  • Ingredients:
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoons baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground clove
  • ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 3 mashed bananas
  • ¾ cup lavender honey
  • 2 eggs


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Spray a loaf pan with non stick spray.
  • First, let’s make the lavender brown butter.
  • In a dry skillet, toast the lavender until it becomes fragrant.
  • Add the butter. Cook gently on medium heat until it gets all foamy. With a spoon, pull aside the foam. Once the butter has turned a golden light caramel color, remove from heat. Leave to cool for a few minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, baking soda, salt, clove and turmeric.
  • In a large bowl, combine banana, honey and eggs. Whisk until thoroughly combined.
  • Add brown butter and whisk to combine.
  • Add half the flour and mix until well incorporated.
  • Add remaining flour and mix until just combined.
  • Transfer to prepared loaf pan.
  • Transfer to oven and bake for 60-70 minutes, until a tester comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from pan and leave to cool completely before slicing.
