The other day I mistakenly ordered too many bananas.... about a dozen too many! I decided it was a great opportunity to make one of our family's favorite treats - Banana Bread. This time however, I wanted to make a healthier version - I used no butter and no added sugar. You will notice there are a few more healthy additions. It was delicious! Even my children loved it. Find the recipe below.
"Too yummy to be healthy" Banana Bread:
-1/2 cup coconut oil
-1/2 cup organic maple syrup
-2 brown eggs
-3 ripe organic bananas
-1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
-1/2 cup ground flaxseed
-3/4 tsp baking soda
-1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In blender, cream coconut oil and maple syrup. Add eggs, one at a time. Add bananas.
In large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients, holding back walnuts. Add banana mixture, then walnuts. Pour into loaf pan, greased with coconut oil. Bake for 40-45 minutes. Let cool for an hour before slicing.
