Easy Healthy Banana Bread Recipe


I’ve been on the hunt for some quick and healthy recipes that will still satisfy a sweet tooth lately, and this Easy Healthy Banana Bread has been in our oven almost daily since I first made it!

With only a few ingredients, its not only delicious, but a quick and convenient way to use up bananas before they go bad!

You can also play around with the recipe a little to suit your taste buds! The loaf pictured is exactly as the recipe states, but we’ve made it with dark chocolate chips (about 1/4 cup) and raisins as well (about 1/3 cup)!

I started with this recipe in an effort to find a more healthy snack for Maddie, and this has not only become that, but she asks for it as a treat when she successfully uses the potty! Score one for Mom!
