What makes banana bread healthy?
This banana bread recipe is made of 100% whole wheat flour, unlike typical banana bread recipes that call for refined flour and tons of added sugar.
This banana bread is naturally sweetened with honey or maple syrup, which contains trace nutrients that do not contain white sugar.
Finally, this recipe calls for a reasonable amount of unrefined oil rather than whole sticks of butter (choose either virgin coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, or vegetable oil).
As you can see, my baked banana bread has a lot of redeeming virtues, the main thing is that it won’t send your blood sugar on a loop. You should keep all of them to yourself, however. No one is going to be able to say that this is balanced banana bread!
INGREDIENTS You’re going to need
Flour: You can use gluten-free flour, white flour, oat flour, or whole wheat flour with whatever flour you want.

Soda, cinnamon, vanilla, salt, and baking powder.
HEALTHY BANANA BREAD
1⁄2 cup of honey (168 grams) or maple syrup (155 grams)
1 cup (225 grams) of mashed ripe bananas (about 2 1⁄2 medium or 2 heavy bananas)
1⁄4 cup (56 grams) of milk or drink of choice
1 teaspoon of baking soda (no baking powder; it’s not the same thing!)
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1⁄2 teaspoon of salt
1⁄2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon with more swirl to the tip.
1 3⁄4 cup (220 grams) of white whole wheat flour or standard whole wheat flour
Totally optional: 1⁄2 cup mixtures, such as chopped walnuts or pecans, chocolate chips, raisins, chopped dried fruit, fresh banana slices…
HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY BANANA BREAD
Beat oil and honey together with a whisk in a large tub. Attach the eggs and beat well then whisk the mashed bananas and the sugar. (If your coconut oil solidifies in contact with cold ingredients, just let the bowl stay in a warm position for a few minutes, just like the tip of your bowl.
Apply the baking soda, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon, and whisk. Finally, turn to a broad spoon and stir in the flour once mixed. Any lumps are all right! If you add some extra mix-ins, kindly fold them in.
Apply the flour to the greased loaf pan and dust with cinnamon softly. If you want a pretty swirled result, run the tip of the knife over the batter in a zig-zag pattern.
Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean (usually, if I haven’t added a mix-in, my bread is finished for 55 minutes; if I’ve added a mix-in, it takes more than 60 minutes). Let the bread cool down in the loaf pan for at least 10 minutes. You can need to loop a butter knife around the sides to loosen the bread out of the pan. Carefully move the loaf to the wire rack to cool before cutting.
