I could eat this healthyish banana bread every morning for breakfast with a cup of coffee. What does healthyish even mean you might ask?
Well, to me, it’s a food or bevie that is still a treat, however I used less processed sugar and threw in some nutrient dense ingredients (whole wheat flour, applesauce, bananas, collagen and walnuts)!
And…OMG this recipe smells amazing. The bread turned out MOIST and delicious. Yes, I used the word moist, because the thesaurus didn’t give me any other options. Damp just doesn’t work.
I consider this recipe a healthier alternative to a few other sweet breakfast treats like donuts, pastries, croissants etc. If you pair with a veggie omelette for some protein and veggies, you’ve got a balanced plate!
Healthyish Banana Bread Nutrition Info:
Bananas- Good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C, Potassium and Manganese, and a very good source of Vitamin B6! I love replacing some of the sugar with bananas, using fruit is a great alternative in baking.
Sugar 2.0 with probiotic– The game-changing Sugar 2.0 is a natural, gluten-free, non-gmo cane sugar product, has debuted a second product, Sugar 2.0 + Probiotics. Both products contain half the sugar and a third fewer calories than regular sugar, along with soluble fiber.
Walnuts- excellent source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 essential fatty acids, in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). They are also rich in antioxidants, including being a very good source of manganese and copper.
Collagen- I love unflavored collagen peptides for an extra source of amino acids and protein. It easily blends into baked goods. I use Further Food Collagen!
Need another baked good with collagen to try? My healthyish pumpkin bread recipe is a treat!
