Healthy Banana Bread Recipe

Yummy!

I make banana bread a lot. It is a fantastic way to use up those bananas that have gone just a bit to brown.
This recipe is simple but so delicious, AND healthy! And if you use gluten free oats its even a gluten free recipe.

It’s super easy to make, give it at try!

You will need

200g / 5 dl oats, which you will grind into a flour using a hand mixer or processor.
3 medium Bananas
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 table spoons sugar or xylitol
1 tablespoon melted butter or oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or vanilla sugar for my swedish friends
A hand full of frozen Raspberries or blueberries.

First you grind the oats into a flour.

Once thats done you stir in the baking powder, baking soda and sugar. (if you’re using vanilla sugar you can add that at this point too) I’m actually using xylitol here instead of sugar. The bread will taste exactly that same, it’s just a bit healthier.

All the dry ingredients

In a separate bowl you mix the bananas in to a mush (I use that same hand mixer as I did for the oats). Then pour in the melted butter and vanilla extract (unless you already put it in with the dry ingredients)

Then add the two mixtures together and stir well before adding the frozen berries.

The wet and dry ingredients have been mixed and lastly adding the frozen rasberries

Pour (or scoop, the mixture will be quite thick) in to a bread tin.
Sprinkle a bit of sugar on the top and if you want you can put some oats and seeds on top too.
Bake in the oven for 25-35 min at 200 degrees. When the skewer comes out dry-ish its done. Start checking at about 25min but if the bananas you’ve used were really mushy you might need a few more minutes.

Try it and let me know what you think!

This one turned out dark and crusty on top because I sprinkled raw sugar on it before going in the oven. Tastes lovely!
