I have been trying to make banana bread taste good without flour, butter and sugar forever, but without success. However, this time is different, this healthy banana bread is moist and delicious, you’ll never want real banana bread again! No one was around when I made this, but I wanted to run around screaming I finally did it, I finally did it! And, maybe I did anyway, you may never know.
After many gross, flat and mushy breads, I’m proud of this baby. It didn’t fall and it tasted fantastic. My mom used to make this amazing chocolate banana bread with this crumbly topping that was absolutely delicious. So, that’s what I was trying to recreate here, without the buttery sugary topping of course!
What you’ll need, preheat oven to 350:
- 3 very ripe bananas
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/2 tablespoon vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon baking powder (I know this sounds like a lot, but without real flour, it helps it raise)
- 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 cups of almond flour (almond meal)
- 1/2 cup oat flour
Mush the bananas add the remaining wet ingredients, add dry ingredients together, then add dry to wet, not over mixing, Bake for 30 minutes. Keep an eye on this bread, I thought it would take almost an hour like most banana bread recipes do, but it actually cooked pretty fast. I would recommend checking it after 30 minutes, then see if it needs to be in longer.
Remove from the oven and enjoy your decadent healthy banana bread without feeling guilty!
