Banana bread is a classic recipe, all-American comfort food that fills the whole house with coziness and makes everything better. Banana bread is real magic.

  • This banana bread recipe is cooked with 100 percent whole wheat flour, unlike traditional banana bread recipes that contain refined flour and tons of processed sugar.
  • This banana bread idea is naturally sweetened with honey, which offers some healthy micronutrients that white sugar does not.
  • Lastly, this recipe calls for a moderate amount of unrefined oil rather than full spoons of butter (choose from virgin coconut oil, extra-virgin olive oil, or vegetable oil).

The recipe is adjustable! Any of the following flours will perform well. But we recommend whole wheat flour and whole wheat pastry flour. They offer all the entire wheat nutrients without the characteristically nutty flavor.

  • All-purpose flour
  • Gluten-free all-purpose flour blend
  • Oat flour
  • Spelt flour
  • Whole wheat flour
  • Whole wheat pastry flour
  • White whole wheat flour

So, let's try cooking this fantastic recipe idea immediately!
