Healthy Snack

Banana bread is a staple in my home. It's nice to have something nutritious and delicious that you can easily grab as a quick snack. I normally put this in my refrigerator to make it last longer, but honestly, it usually disappears after only a day or two!

Tips for Added Nutrition and Taste

Here are some of the substitutions and additions I made in this recipe to make it healthier and tastier:

  • Substituted coconut almond milk for regular milk (check out the videos below for their health benefits).
  • Added chia seeds, which are a superfood! (See video below for more information about chia seeds.)
  • Substituted muscovado sugar for brown and white sugar (muscovado sugar is less processed).
  • Added extra bananas for a bread that is extra moist and delicious.

Small changes like these can make a big difference in making your food healthier.

Ingredients

  • 4 to 5 bananas, mashed
  • 2 tablespoons muscovado sugar, or to taste
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup coconut almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or macadamia nuts

Note About Coconut Almond Milk

If you can't find the premixed coconut almond milk combo in your grocery store, substitute 1/2 cup coconut milk plus 1/2 cup almond milk.

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a rectangular baking dish with baking paper.

  4. In a separate dish, mix the dry ingredients. Then add to the wet ingredients.
  5. The batter will be thick. Add the nuts.
  6. Pour the batter into your baking dish.
  7. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until done. Insert a thin knife or a toothpick to test doneness. If the knife or toothpick comes out clean, your bread is done.
