Banana Bread Recipe

Banana Bread RecipeThe banana bread recipe below is adapted from the Forks Over Knives – The Cookbook: It calls for only a few basic ingredients, goes well with homemade soups and salads, and is also a perfect complement to smoothies and coffee in the morning.  I like to double this recipe and then freeze one loaf.

List of ingredients:

2 cups whole wheat flour

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 cup mashed bananas

1/2 cup 100% pure maple syrup

1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/4 cup unsweetened plant-based milk

1 & 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Banana Bread RecipePreheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease and flour an 8×4-inch loaf pan or use a silicone baking pan.

In a large bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, baking soda, and cinnamon.

In a separate bowl, combine the mashed banana, maple syrup, applesauce, plant-based milk, and vanilla.  Mix thoroughly.

Pour the banana mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until moistened.  Then spoon the batter into the prepared baking pan and bake for approximately 55 to 60 minutes.  After baking, cool the bread for 30 minutes before taking out of the pan.[printfriendly]

    I love that this recipe uses maple syrup instead of processed sugar! I love banana bread but I never seem to bake it long enough to where it is done in the middle. Have you tried making these into muffins?

      This recipe is super healthy in that it has no butter, eggs, or processed sugar! I haven’t tried muffins yet. But have recently purchased cute little red silicone muffin cups. Will let you know how they turn out!
