A healthier alternative to banana bread made with wholesome ingredients. This chocolate banana bread is moist, fudgy, delicious, and is sure to become a new family favorite!
Healthy banana bread?! is that even possible!! That was the reaction from my husband and daughters when I told them I’m making a healthy chocolate banana bread. They looked at me like I’m a crazy lady and smiled. Then when they tasted it, they went nuts. I swear you guys, this bread is 1000x better than any banana bread you’re going to taste and no one will ever be able to tell it’s “healthy”.
I used oat flour along with regular flour and replaced sugar with honey. And because bananas are naturally super sweet, they pretty much do the job of sugar. I also replaced the oil with coconut oil and added some Greek yogurt for extra moisture and flavor.
To make this delicious healthy banana bread, you will need:
To begin making the banana bread, simply combine all the dry ingredients and set aside. Then whisk together all the wet ingredients and incorporate the dry.
Mix well and pour into a greased loaf pan.
Bake for 45 minutes and that’s it! your home will smell like a french bakery in no time 🙂
All that’s left is to patiently let this delicious chocolate banana bread cool down before slicing!
