The Best Healthy Banana Bread




I know you are probably skeptical of the title. You're probably thinking "THE Best? Really Kat? Is this really the best banana bread?". But I assure you, I rarely make the same recipe more than a couple times but I have made this banana bread every single time I had over-ripe bananas too use.




Yes that is correct, I didn't even think about finding or using a different recipes to use my bananas!



This banana bread is so simple. I think the real secret is it being sweetened by honey. This way the banana bread is not only naturally sweetened but you also get a wonder dense yet fluffy texture from the honey. It is so good.

Ingredients

⅓ cup melted coconut oil
½ cup honey
2 eggs
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 bananas)
¼ cup almond milk
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more to swirl on top

1/4 tsp nutmeg
1¾ cups spelt flour
1/4 cup chocolate chips

1/4 cup walnuts


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325F and grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan. Line the bottom with wax paper
  2. In a large bowl, beat the coconut oil and honey together with a whisk. Add the eggs and beat well, then whisk in the mashed bananas and almond milk. It's a good idea to bring your eggs and milk to room temperature so that the coconut oil doesn't soldify
  3. Add the baking soda, vanilla, salt cinnamon, and nutmeg. Blend together
  4. Stir in the flour, just until combined. Some lumps are ok.
  5. Gently fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
  6. Pour the batter into your  loaf pan and sprinkle lightly with cinnamon. If you want the swirled effect, run the tip of a knife across the batter in a zig-zag pattern.
  7. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the bread cool in the loaf pan for 10 minutes then serve!

Let me know if you try this out!
