healthy sugar free banana bread



So I had gotten a bunch of bananas from my dads restaurant vendor, because apparently they were too ripened to use.  These are the kind I search for… perfect for baking.  This gets me excited.  I wanted to keep it really healthy this time around and ditched the refined sugar.  I used a small amount of maple syrup (you can sub in honey or any other liquid sweetener you prefer).  I also opted to use half whole wheat flour and half regular all purpose flour.  You can use all whole wheat if you like or all all purpose flour.

Banana bread:  its always a good idea.  You will love this recipe.  Delicious, hearty and flavor packed without the guilt.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3-4 ripe medium bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 F.   Grease a 9×5 loaf pan.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.

In a large bowl, using an electric hand mixer, beat the eggs, oil, maple syrup, milk and vanilla for 2 minutes.  Stir in the bananas using a rubber spatula.  Then stir in the flour a little at a time.  Lastly fold in the walnuts.  Transfer mixture to prepared pan.  Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Allow to cool for 15 minutes prior to slicing.

…delicious happens
