My family is obsessed with banana bread. I try not to make it too often because when I do, we eat the entire loaf in one sitting. Since having my two babies I am in a constant battle with the baby weight and eating clean has definitely proven to be the best way to lose and keep off weight. I love that it is a healthy lifestyle and not a diet. Anyways… I could go on forever about eating clean because I am a huge (Okay not huge, I lost 20 lbs, so maybe medium sized :)) fan. I would definitely recommend reading the book and trying it out, if not even for weight loss, for a healthy lifestyle. Check out the book here!
Anyways, to make a short story long, I made clean banana bread this morning and it was delicious! I have tried some recipes before that weren’t great so I adapted one of my own and it was awesome, I had to share!
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup Truvia or Honey (I used Truvia but I’m not sure its actually “clean”)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup greek yogurt
3 mashed bananas
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, we always do muffins rather than a loaf because it cooks WAY faster. So either prepare your muffin tins with cupcake papers or grease your loaf pan
2. In a large bowl, stir together the melted coconut oil and Truvia. Add the eggs and vanilla, mix well. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt, stir into coconut oil/Truvia mixture until smooth (although it didn’t ever get that smooth). Fold in the greek yogurt and mashed bananas.
3. Spoon mixture into cupcake papers, fill to 2/3 full. Bake for 15-20 minutes (60 if you are using a loaf pan) or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
