The tastiest healthy Banana Bread recipe…

Here’s my recipe for the tastiest banana bread using Coconut Sugar!

To be honest I had never taken the opportunity to make the stereotypical lockdown activity of Banana Bread until now…

Every time I have attempted to bake banana bread I always aimed to make it using a healthy recipe and quite frankly every time I attempted to make a ‘healthier’ Banana Bread recipe they always ended up coming out of the oven incredibly dense and rather ‘brick’ like haha.

However, I have since came up with a Banana bread recipe that has a much better outcome and is a lot more like a typical ‘cake texture’ banana bread and tastes amazing!

I used coconut sugar in this recipe and it creates an amazing caramelised Banana taste in the bread.


  • 2 large Bananas
  • 40 grams Low fat Butter (You can use normal butter if you wish, this can also be made vegan if you substitute butter for Coconut Oil!)
  • 125g Coconut Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (Optional- Leave it out for a deeper Banana flavour!)
  • 130g Plain Flour
  • 1 tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • ¼ tsp of Salt
  • 65ml Milk (This recipe can be made vegan if you substitute normal milk for Nut Milk)


  • Mash your two bananas up in a bowl until creamy.
  • In one bowl cream together the mashed bananas, butter ( or coconut oil) ,coconut sugar, egg and vanilla (if you choose to use it).
  • Mix in the flour, baking soda and salt until your mixture becomes like a cake mixture consistency.
  • Fold in your choice of milk.
  • Pour the mixture into your loaf tin and bake at Gas Mark 5 about 45 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
  • Bon Appetit!
