I love baking Banana Bread! It’s a perfect way how to use up ripe bananas. This version is by far my favourite one, it’s simple, healthy and yummy.
I like to make my banana bread with oat flour. If you’ve been following my blog for a while now, you probably already know how much I love baking with it. It’s a healthy white flour alternative that is also inexpensive and delicious.
I always make this bread with over ripe bananas, so the bread itself is sweet enough and doesn’t need extra sugar. I add only 3-4 tablespoons of maple syrup to the batter, but if you have a sweet tooth, go ahead and add more. Feel free to add some dried fruit, shredded coconut, peanut butter or cocoa powder to the batter. I’m sure they can be a very delicious addition!
I hope you like this recipe and let me know if you try it.
Have a nice day guys!
