Healthier Banana Bread

(makes 1 loaf)


Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup melted Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 cup local Honey
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3 extra ripe, mashed, medium Bananas
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp real Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher or Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground Cinnamon plus a little more for topping
  • 1 3/4 cup All-Purpose Flour

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 and grease a bread loaf pan (I sprayed with Coconut Oil cooking spray).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the oil and honey together.
  3. Add eggs and beat well.
  4. Add in the mashed bananas and milk and beat well.
  5. Add in the baking soda, vanilla extract, salt, and cinnamon and incorporate well.
  6. Sift in the flour, incorporating well but not over-mixing.
  7. Pour the batter into the greased loaf pan and sprinkle with additional cinnamon over the top, swirling into the batter slightly if desired.
  8. Bake for about 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  Let cool before slicing.
