My mom gave me some old bananas this morning with a request for a healthy banana bread. If you are like me (and my mom) then you buy your bananas at Costco. I always have some extra over-ripe ones for freezing or banana bread. I found this recipe when I was searching for a clean banana bread. Clean quick breads are hard to find, so I am excited to try this one and I am happy to share it with ya’ll!
I followed this recipe by the book except for the baking time, which was shortened to 35 minutes. (Click title for recipe)
As always, the first step is mashing your bananas.
If you aren’t measuring your flour, I highly recommend it. Not only is it more accurate, it is super easy clean up.
Combine the wet ingredients and then add the dry mixture to the wet.
Your dough will be lumpy.
Bake 35 minutes; then cool ~10 minutes before removing from pan.
Although I learned a new healthy tip this week…only bake goods that come out in one piece (to avoid mindless taste-testing and extra calories). I broke the rule to enjoy a slice of the bread (sorry mom!). It is a beautiful looking and smelling bread that tastes as good as it smells. I enjoy breads with whole wheat flour and you won’t even miss the sugar!
If you are looking for other clean bread recipes, try my (I use that term lightly) Butternut Squash Bread! It’s one of my favorites!
