Banana Honey Bread

Nelly G.


This is a banana bread recipe that I converted to use honey instead of sugar. It's delicious and makes a great breakfast bread. The type and quality of your honey will certainly determine the end result of your recipe. Choose a nice medium amber colored honey to bring out the best flavor of your recipe. You don't have to use raw honey, but I suggest it because raw honey is so much better for you than processed or pasteurized honey. Processed honey acts very much like refined sugar and has most of the nutrients destroyed through processing.
