Banana bread (Refined sugar free)
How few simple ingredients when combined together becomes something so delicious! The magic of baking always fascinated me. This Banana bread is so moist and oh so tasty! Once you bake this it will become your favourite to bake it over and over again.
This recipe happened just like that one afternoon when over ripe bananas kept staring at me! :D they were on the verge of being binned but thankfully one afternoon I thought if I don’t used them today then it’s gone for sure. I was lucky to I had all the ingredients at home, so this bread was made out of simple ingredients that are easily available in everybody’s food cupboard.
The texture is so perfect! Moist and so tasty. It is refined sugar free, I have used pure honey and that too only a tablespoon, because the bananas also are enough to sweeten it. The only thing that has sugar is chocolate chips, you can omit if you don’t want them. If you like yours a bit sweeter you can add a bit more of honey.
Make it gluten-free by using gluten-free flour. I haves added chocolate chunks you can even use white chocolate chips if you like, that is the only thing that has sugar, if you want it fully sugar free feel free to skip it.
If you would like muffins then I have a simple Banana and walnut dark chocolate chips recipe.
I really hope you enjoy these delicious muffins much as I did :) Let me know if you tried my recipe, please feel free to tag me and use my hashtag #soulfulandhealthy on your lovely creations, so I don't miss them.
