Simple Healthy Banana Bread
An easy no mixer banana bread that's made healthy by using no butter, and that's very lightly sweetened with coconut sugar. Tastes like the real deal with a lot less calories!
overripe bananas, mashed
Depending on how sweet you want it.
whole wheat flour
all purpose flour
melted coconut oil
Grease a standard sized loaf pan (9x5 inch) with pan spray or butter and line with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 180 C, 350 F.
Mash bananas in a mixing bowl (I use a potato masher). Add egg, vanilla, coconut sugar, and whisk well to combine.
In a separate bowl, mix together the flours, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. Add to the banana mixture and stir gently with a spatula to combine. Gently stir in the melted coconut oil.
Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf pan. If topping with a halved banana, slice a banana in half lengthwise and lay gently on top of the batter. Sprinkle with some extra coconut sugar.
Bake for 35-45 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. I like eating banana bread warm out the oven, sometimes with a little butter, sometimes with some nut butter. Always with coffee.
I used 4 tablespoons of coconut sugar and it was perfectly sweet to me!
