This easy recipe shows you how good healthy can taste. You don't need a mixer, I just use a fork to mix. It makes the house smell so nice, people always smile when they come in. This is my son's favourite school snack. Swiss schools do not allow unhealthy, sugary food/drinks at school. This banana bread is high on flavour, whole wheat grain and fibre, and low in sugar and fat. So this one is allowed! In moderation of course. If I make it at the weekend I add small chunks of plain white chocolate. Delish! You can add a pinch of baking powder or baking soda to make it rise a little more.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Banana bread is great for breakfast or afternoon tea and this is a very moist, tasty recipe. Bananas make the bread sweet so you don't notice that there is only a little sugar added. We added macadamia nuts to the bread and liked the crunch and coconut flavor. Dense and filling, no one will believe you when you say it's healthy. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
