Easy Healthy Banana Bread Recipe


No matter how healthy we eat, I'm sure we all have the occasional cravings of unhealthy foods. But when I discover healthy alternatives for sweets, it definitely makes me feel a lot better. Here I'm going to introduce to you to my healthy banana bread recipe. I've got to admit, I've found myself eating this for breakfast topped with peanut butter or jam and is also a good choice when rushing out the door. This recipe contains healthy oats and highly nutritional almonds that are very beneficial for the body. 


Makes one loaf

- Hand full of almonds
- 1 cup of oats
- 1 cup of wholemeal flour
- 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon of baking soda
- 3 large ripe bananas
- 1 tablespoon oil (vegetable, coconut)
- ½ a cup of honey, agave or maypole syrup
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
- ½ a cup of raisins

01. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit and move the rack to the middle shelf.

02. Blend the almonds and oats up in a blender until is becomes a flour like consistency. You can do this separately or together.

03. Mix dry ingredients together.

04. Mash bananas up in a separate bowl. Then add other wet ingredients and mix together. You may blend it instead if you wish.

05. Mix both the wet and dry ingredients together. The consistency should be quite thick. Then throw in the raisins and mix together.

06. Aline your baking tin with parchment paper or smear with butter.

07. Place the mixture into the dish and place the dish into the oven for 45-60 minutes.

08. After 45 minutes check on the bread, by sticking a skewer or knife into it. If the skewer comes out with no reside then it is ready. If not, leave it in for longer and check on it every 5-10 minutes.

09. Let it cool than eat and enjoy (although I like the taste of it when its warm).
