Hello Healthy Banana Bread!


Q: Why did the banana go out with the prune?
A: Because he couldn’t find a date.
Who doesn’t love a good banana bread?? Sweet, melt-in-your-mouth, homemade (like your mom used to make) goodness… While I’m not much of a baker, I sure do enjoy baked goods. But being gluten, dairy and soy free makes it quite a challenge to find a yummy baked treat that meets my dietary restrictions. So, what’s a hungry girl to do?

This weekend I noticed a few ‘very ripe’ bananas lying around in my kitchen and I knew that it was time to make something yummy. Cue this bread!!

In addition to being gluten, dairy and soy free, it’s also plants based, oil free, low sugar and vegan! Unlike those box mixes and store bought versions, this banana bread is delicious but also nutritious! No guilt, just goodness! So without further-a-do, here’s my recipe!

    Banana bread is definitely a favorite of mine, but it’s dangerous around me because I can totally eat the whole loaf in one sitting! So I’m loving that yours is so healthy! And those big slices of bananas look amazing! Can’t wait to try this, dear! Cheers!

    gosh I haven’t made banana bread in so long and I don’t know why! I’m thinking it has something to do with me using all my bananas for smoothies 😉
