Whole Wheat Sugar Free Banana Bread Recipe
My family eats a lot of bananas. They are, without a doubt, my twins’ favorite snack (and one of mine, too), so it’s rare to find several ripe bananas, which are required to make banana bread, in my house. But last week we lucked out: a friend gave us a bunch from her banana tree. And so, with a stockpile of the delicious fruit on hand, homemade banana bread was on the breakfast menu.
This recipe is a healthy alternative to the traditional banana bread. It uses 100% whole wheat flour, local honey instead of sugar, and all natural applesauce in lieu of oil.
My family and I love this recipe, and I hope you do too. Let me know what you think; leave your comments below.
