Healthy Banana Bread Recipe

Nothing makes a house smell better than baking fresh banana bread – and when you’ve overbought bananas – a go-to healthy recipe is a must.  This recipe is free of saturated fat, low in sugar, is made with 100% Whole Wheat Flour… and has extra fiber too.

The MOST important tip I can give you about making flavorful banana bread is really ripe bananas.  And when I say really ripe, I mean allover brown or very close to all over… my husband calls them rotten… and while I wouldn’t enjoy eating the banana this ripe… it is the ripeness that gives the banana bread great flavor.
