It’s finally here! We are a huge fan of banana bread.  Somehow, we always end up with 3 to 4 very ripe bananas just sitting on the counter. Bananas that are too ripe to eat, but are perfect for baking. You know what they say, when life gives you ripe bananas, make banana bread.

But seriously, ripe bananas are a dream in banana bread and make the best banana bread ever. This healthy banana bread is everything you want in banana bread. It’s moist, dense, and full of flavor. I made a batch and shared a few slices with my friends and they could not believe it was “healthy”.

This recipe is a keeper for sure, and I’m sure your family will love it as much as we do! 

HOW TO MAKE BANANA BREAD HEALTHY

To make this banana bread healthy:

The sugar is replaced with honey

for the butter, we opted for coconut oil

As for the flour, whole wheat flour works wonders!

Another very important ingredient is the ripe bananas. Ripe bananas are super sweet so the riper the better. If your bananas are not yet brown or soft then you can place them in a 300F degree oven for 20 minutes or until dark brown. I swear this method will produce the ripest bananas that are perfect for banana bread.

HOW TO STORE BANANA BREAD

This banana bread will last at room temperature for 3-4 days. To store, place a paper towel in an airtight container or ziplock bag and top your bread with another paper towel. Be sure to seal the bag or airtight container.

To Freeze: You can leave the loaf whole and just wrap it and store it in a freezer-safe bag or container until you’re ready to eat it. You can also slice it and freeze it as well. To unthaw, just move it to the fridge for a short time or take it out of the freezer and set it out on the counter. It will unthaw quickly and easily.

  1. I’ve made this recipe 4 times now and absolutely LOVE it. Im in my baking era and loving creating delicious recipes for family and friends, this is the absolute best banana bread I’ve had/made and I have it for breakfast now with greek yogurt and drizzled with honey. Just STUNNING!!

  2. This was so good. I did nit add chocolate chips and used flax eggs. Will be making it again

  3. This is by far the best banana bread recipe ever!!!!!!!! Keeper for sure. I used honey and half yoghurt half milk and it is so moist and the fact that its not overly sweet is just 💯

  4. This is the best banana bread recipe I’ve ever used. The baker in always adds ground up Biscoff for a light topping. Sometimes chocolate sometimes without. It’s a bakers dream bread

    1. I use a standard 9×5 pan but any pan around the same measurments will work.

  5. This is hands down the BEST banana bread recipe I have tried! Perfect texture and incredible flavour!! I used olive oil, unsweetened almond milk, dark chocolate chips and maple syrup when we were given options. I will definitely be making this next time I have guests over! 🙏🏼

    1. What a beautiful photo! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review <3
