Searching For A Healthy Banana Bread Recipe
My Mom told me she was going to be making banana bread the other day. She has a tasty banana bread recipe that has white flour and added white sugar. Plus other ingredients that didn't make it very healthy. I have to be honest I use to have a sweet tooth until my stomach could no longer handle the sweets when I became super healthy. I was craving a healthy banana bread recipe without sugar. I finally have found one and I am going to share with you the recipe. Let's make healthy banana bread recipe without sugar.
How Can Healthy Banana Bread Recipe Without Sugar Be Healthy?
Healthy banana bread with honey is one way that this recipe is healthy. Healthy banana bread with coconut oil is the second way that this is considered a healthy banana bread.
Ingredients For Healthy Banana Bread Recipe Without Sugar
⅓ cup melted coconut oil or extra-virgin olive oil or high-quality vegetable oil*
½ cup honey or maple syrup
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 ½ medium or 2 large bananas)
¼ cup milk of choice or water
1 teaspoon baking soda (NOT baking powder; they aren’t the same!)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more to swirl on top
1 ¾ cups white whole wheat flour or regular whole wheat flour
Totally optional: ½ cup mix-ins like chopped walnuts or pecans, chocolate chips, raisins, chopped dried fruit, fresh banana slices
Instructions For Baking Healthy Banana Bread Recipe Without Sugar
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (165 degrees Celsius) and grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, beat the oil and honey together, together with a whisk. Add the eggs and beat well, then whisk in the mashed bananas and milk. (If your coconut oil solidifies on contact with cold ingredients, simply let the bowl rest in a warm place for a few minutes, like on top of your stove, or warm it for about 10 seconds in the microwave.)
Add the baking soda, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon, and whisk to blend. Lastly, switch to a big spoon and stir in the flour, just until combined. Some lumps are ok! If you’re adding any additional mix-ins, gently fold them in now.
Pour the batter into your greased loaf pan and sprinkle lightly with cinnamon. If you’d like a pretty swirled effect, run the tip of a knife across the batter in a zig-zag pattern.
Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean (typically, if I haven’t added any mix-ins, my bread is done at 55 minutes; if I have added mix-ins, it needs closer to 60 minutes). Let the bread cool in the loaf pan for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool for 20 minutes before slicing.

Keep In Mind
Keep in mind that this banana recipe may turn out a little darker than other types of banana bread recipes. If your banana bread turns out like this don't start thinking that you dried it out. When I had my first slice of this healthy banana bread recipe without sugar, our loaf turned out darker, but still moist. Also if you are used to making banana bread with sugar it might take you a couple of slices of this one to get used to the taste.
