Super Moist Banana Bread
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Healthy banana bread that's refined-sugar free, and super moist and delicious.
- 3 very ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 1/2 cups)
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond or cashew milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
Pre-heat oven at 350 deg F. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mash your bananas. Add your eggs, coconut oil, milk, and vanilla extract. Mix to combine. It's okay if there are chunks of bananas as that gives your banana bread some texture.
In another bowl, whisk together the flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Then combine the dry ingredients into the wet mixture. Mix with a spoon but don't over-mix it as that will make the bread dense.
Fold in your choco chips, walnuts and chia seeds if using. Pour the batter into the loaf pan. And bake for about 45-50 minutes. When a toothpick comes out clean, and the top is browned, your banana bread is ready.
Let it cool for about 15 minutes before cutting it. To serve, you can top it with some nut butter.
*Light brown sugar can be used instead of coconut sugar.
*Other flours like all-purpose flour, or gluten-free flour can be used too.
*Other unsweetened milk of choice can be used instead of nut milk.
