Recipe Made Healthy: Banana Bread

Be Sociable, Share!

    Here is one of my favorite modified recipes for Banana Bread!  This recipe keeps the bread super-moist and is definitely kinder on the waistline than the traditional version, subbing alternative sweetener for sugar and almond flour for all-purpose flour.  Add a few scoops of whey protein to balance the carb-to-protein ratio a bit, and voila! Definitely a great breakfast option or small mid-morning meal–perhaps with some coffee?  Hope you enjoy! ox Jill

    Preheat oven 325 degrees F, PAM a large loaf pan

    Bowl 2, mix:

    Combine all, mix well and pour into loaf pan, bake 60 minutes or until fork comes out clean
