Healthy Cinnamon Crumb Banana Bread

Moist lightened-up banana bread made with honey, olive oil, yogurt and topped with a cinnamon crumble.Healthier Cinnamon Crunch Banana BreadI get excited whenever we have over-ripe because I know it’s time for banana bread. Banana bread is one of the easiest and most delicious bread you can make. Over the past few years, I’ve shared a few of my favorite banana bread recipes with you all and this one is another favorite.

It’s a healthier lightened up version of my original banana bread. It’s topped with a crunchy cinnamon crumble that is to die for. The bread itself contains no butter or sugar but the crumble itself does contain 2 tablespoons of butter but it’s totally worth it!

If you’re looking for the gluten-free version, be sure to check it out here and if you just want a plain healthy chocolate chip banana bread to check out this one.
