Banana Bread, Revisited

Banana Bread

Hello there, friends! It seems that one of your favorite recipes is my Banana Bread one. However, after making this many many times, and hearing your feedback, I come to you with a new twist on this old recipe! This recipe has the following changes from the original:

  • Instead of two cups of flour, one cup of whole wheat flour and one cup of flaked oats is used. This gives the bread a bit more texture.
  • Honey is used as the sweetener instead of maple syrup. This adds a more hearty flavor, although it makes the bread not vegan.
  • Vanilla is added (yum!) Who doesn’t like vanilla?
  • No lemon juice needed. There wasn’t a difference and it was an unnecessary extra step.

Overall, these recipes are pretty similar, but depending on what you have in your kitchen, you may like this one better. This banana bread is still healthy, refined sugar free, and easy to make. I hope you enjoy!

  8. Spoon the mixture into a loaf pan and gently shake the pan back and forth until the dough is evenly spread out.
  9. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes. Test to see if the loaf is done by inserting a knife into the center of the loaf. If it comes out clean, the loaf is ready.
