How to make healthy banana bread

by | Feb 1, 2018 | Recipes

If you are a lover of banana bread and looking for a healthy banana bread recipe, this one is sure to win you over.

My family loves banana’s but we sometimes find they can ripen really quickly in the warm weather, and this is a great recipe that will help make use of the overripe bananas without the addition of refined sugar.

We also like making this healthy banana bread during winter as it’s a great after-school snack.

Our healthy banana bread recipe needs to cool in the tin for 10 minutes and then you can transfer to a wire rack. Due to the high egg content, I keep our healthy banana bread in the fridge for up to 4 days.
