Banana bread is one of the first things I make whenever I get home. This is my favorite recipe because it doesn’t have any refined sugar in it which makes it healthier than the average banana bread without losing its flavor.

Ingredients:

• 2 eggs

• 1/2 cup melted coconut oil or olive oil

• 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup

• 1/4 cup milk or Greek yogurt

• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

• 1 cup mashed ripe bananas about 2-3 medium bananas

• 1 3/4 cups white whole wheat flour or regular whole wheat flour or plain all-purpose flour 

• 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon optional

• 1 teaspoon baking soda

• 1/2 teaspoon salt

•1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (not optional) or chopped walnuts, raisins (optional)

Directions:

1. Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan and preheat your oven to 325 degrees.

2. Whisk the flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. I usually only have all-purpose flour on hand and it still works well with the recipe.

3. Beat the eggs, oil, honey, milk and vanilla in a large bowl for 2 minutes.

4. Stir in the flour mixture, bananas, chocolate chips and any other add-ins of your choice.

5. Pour the batter into the greased pan and sprinkle additional cinnamon, raw sugar, or chocolate chips on top.

6. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick or knife come out clean when inserted into the middle of the loaf.

7. Cool for 10 minutes and enjoy! I love to top my banana bread with peanut butter and cinnamon.
