Healthy Banana Bread
Recipe type: Bread/Dessert
Serves: 1 loaf
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed (if the bananas are large, use two)
  • 1¼ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a loaf pan with non-stick spray; set aside.
  2. Add coconut oil to a large microwave safe bowl. Melt coconut oil in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
  3. Next, whisk in brown sugar until incorporated, then add the egg and vanilla and whisk until incorporated.
  4. Add mashed bananas and stir.
  5. Lastly, add whole wheat flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and stir until just combined (do not over-mix.)
  6. Bake for about 35-45 minutes. Check at 35 minutes and if the top if browning too much, tent tin foil over the loaf pan and continue to bake until a knife comes out clean when inserted into the center of the bread.
Add chopped nuts, raisins or chocolate chips if you would like.
