Recipe: Best Banana Bread – A healthy take on this classic treat.

Recipe: Best Banana Bread – A healthy take on this classic treat.

Ready for some seriously good banana bread? Possibly the best banana bread ever? The best banana bread that is also healthy?  You read that right. With sprouted flour, organic whole cane sugar, and a generous amount of gooey butter, this banana bread is really delicious.


The best banana bread! Sprouted flour, no refined sugar, and so yummy.

Something about the colder month just makes me want to bake. When I was first making the switch to real foods I found it easy to make my own goodies, but more difficult to stay away from refined sugars and flours. Then I discovered the goodness of using sprouted flour! Sprouted flour is easier to digest, has increased vitamins, and reduced anti-nutrients. Good stuff, people. Good stuff.

This is definitely the best banana bread I’ve ever made, and that’s saying something. I’ve probably cycled through a dozen different recipes over the years, never fully satisfied. But now. NOW, I have my own best banana bread recipe that I can feel good about eating. And so can you.

This banana bread is moist, dense, lightly sweet, and the hint of cinnamon just feels as cozy as Fall. Yum.

    It sounds yummy! I tried making sprouted flour last year. I think it was part of a GNOWFGLIN’s class I took. I’m sure it’s easier to buy the flour rather than create it.

    Thanks for linking up to Motivation Monday!

      Ha ha… yeah, I still haven’t tried making my own sprouted flour. I’m just so glad my local Real Foods Market has it. Once less thing I need to make “from scratch.” :)

    This looks wonderful! We’re gluten-free, so flour is out, but we could sub almond flour with the same recipe. Can’t wait to try it (;

    Just found your blog via Say Not Sweet Anne and became your most recent follower (: I look forward to coming back for more posts…Hope you have a lovely week!!

      Coconut flour usually requires adding a lot more eggs… so it probably isn’t a great substitute for this exact recipe. I’d check out She has a ton of grain-free recipes and might have a great banana bread one if you are looking for a gluten-free option. :)

      I think used in moderation almond flour is fine…. but if used all the time it can cause problems. I have read that article before and agree with it. I know the author still uses almond flour from time to time but tries not to make it a substitute for everything.
