Honey Banana Bread

Jul 24, 2020 | Breakfast

I love banana bread but don’t enjoy all the sugar that’s usually in recipes. So I tried using honey instead and not only does it still taste sweet (but not overly sweet—like cake), the honey helps keep the bread soft and moist. To help keep this banana bread on the healthier side, I use coconut oil, plant-based milk, and chia seeds—no butter. But what really sets my recipe apart is banana extract! That’s right, why not give the bananas an added boost. It really improves the overall flavor from any other recipe you’ll make. Enjoy!

Servings: 6-8

AuthorSunshine UrbaniakCategoryTotal Time55 mins

INGREDIENTS

2 cups Flour, pastry
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
3 Bananas, very ripe
1 tsp Lemon Juice
2 Eggs
½ cup Coconut Oil, melted
cup Honey
¼ cup Almond Milk, or another plant-based milk
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 tsp Banana Extract
1 tbsp Chia Seeds

DIRECTIONS

1

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan with coconut spray and line with parchment paper (if desired).

2

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside. Mash the bananas in a medium bowl and add the lemon juice; set aside.

3

In a large mixing bowl, on medium speed, beat the eggs, coconut oil, honey, milk, and both vanilla and banana extracts for 2 minutes (Tip: start on low speed at first and work your way up to medium speed to avoid making a mess). Gently stir in the banana mixture, chia seeds, and lastly, the flour mixture—don't overmix or bread can get tough. Pour batter into the pan and bake for 45 min. or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 min., then remove from the pan.
