Clean Eating Banana Bread – Delicious

Clean Eating Banana Bread

When we first started clean eating, one of the hardest things for me to give up (so I didn’t at first) was Starbucks banana bread. It was so easy and convenient and oh so delicious! I love a moist banana bread and the only banana bread recipes that I loved had an obscene amount of sugar and white flour. At the time I wasn’t confident enough to attempt to change the recipe so I put it aside and didn’t touch it for a few years

Simple Healthy Banana Bread Recipe – Delicious and Dairy & Egg Free

Fast forward a few years and I make clean Banana bread all the time! I have tested several variations of this recipe and finally settled on a favorite. This recipe calls for white whole wheat flour which makes it denser and more filling. However, it remains moist and full of flavor!

Now that my daughter is avoiding eggs, I have also started using flax in it’s place. I love the idea of sneaking flax into the kids diet as well!

This recipe is so simple and easy, I think you will find yourself reaching for it anytime your bananas turn brown! Be sure to let me know what you think.
