Craving Banana Bread? Here's a delish and healthy version...
My family LOVES banana bread, but not just ANY banana bread. They want MY recipe, and no other :) I'm feeling pretty loved! The kind I make is moist and delicious, and EASY to make, not to mention healthier than most traditional recipes out there. Wanna try some? Let's get baking!
Why is it so easy, you ask? Well, all the ingredients go in my very fabulous and high-tech blender. Truly. Up until I add A Little Extra Love... Yup, the dark-chocolate-chips-with-no-added-sugar-sweetened-by-Stevia kind of LOVE!
Banana Bread with a Little Extra Love
Makes 1 loaf/10 thick slices
3 med/large Bananas 2 large Eggs 1/2 cup, Greek Yogurt - Fat Free - Plain .375 cup (that's 1/2 of 3/4 cup) Stevia No Calorie Sweetener 1/4 cup Coconut Oil (Refined), softened 1 tsp Vanilla extract 3/4 cup Whole Wheat flour 3/4 cup Wheat flour, white, all-purpose, enriched, unbleached 1 tsp Baking soda 1 tsp Iodized Kosher salt 60 chips/14g, Lily's Dark Chocolate Stevia Sweetened Chips
Preheat oven to 350. Place bananas, eggs, yogurt, stevia, coconut oil and vanilla in blender. Push Batters setting or blend on high for 15-20 seconds. Then add flours, baking soda and salt and pulse 3-5 times until just blended. Do not over-blend. Remove blender pitcher from base and remove lid. Add dark chocolate chips and stir with a spatula.
Pour batter in a greased large glass loaf pan. Place in oven and bake for 45 - 50 min. I do the toothpick test at 45 minutes, and go from there on how much longer to bake. Banana Bread is done when toothpick comes out clean.
Let cool, slice, and enjoy your Banana Bread With A Little Extra Love!
RECIPE NOTE: For Gluten Free, substitute your favorite gluten-free flour mixture for the wheat based flours.
