Clean Banana Bread Recipe

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”)

2 eggs

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.

      I haven’t tried it myself. I would think you COULD, but I might be a little concerned about the lack of moisture that the bananas add. However, my family all hates the whole blueberry chunks so we let our berries get mashed. I would think mashed blueberries would add enough moisture. I will have to try it myself and see! Thanks for reading!

    Don’t think eating eggs is considered clean eating. Egg yolks have cholesterol, saturated fat that is laid down in the arteries…contributes to what else but…..Congestive heart failure. Salmonella infection, etc. etc. etc…… How joyous!!! Coconut studies raised cholesterol and saturated fat a great deal, as much as meat, in fact more. Look on the back of the jar…. 12 grams of saturated fat for 1 (one) Tbs…….wowwwwee! I wouldn’t glorify your “clean eating” until it really is.

    Look at nutrition facts dot org. Dr. Greger tells it all and is highly reputable as a nutrition researcher. HEALTH NOT TASTE….. I’m sure yours tastes good though, but that’s easy with eggs and oil. How inventive! What exactly is clean about your recipe, other than no sugar?

      Not sure how you’re defining clean eating Dawn but most clean eating and whole food advocates recognizes that certain types of saturated fat is actually very good for you, including eggs. Also, saturated fat alone does not cause clogged arteries. Clean eating is unprocessed foods, such as eggs.
