Hello to all you Healthy Girls striving to satisfy your sweet tooth while staying on the path of healthiness! Today, I’m thrilled to share a recipe that’s bound to become your favorite: Sugar-Free Banana Bread. Let me guide you through the simple steps of creating this delectable cake, bursting with sweetness and flavors.
Don’t be fooled by the name – Sugar-Free Banana Bread is more like a moist and delicious cake than a plain loaf. The best part? No need to add any sugar, as ripe bananas naturally infuse just the right amount of sweetness into this delight. The riper the bananas, the sweeter the taste they’ll bring. And if you’re lucky enough to get your hands on exotic bananas like plantains, don’t hesitate to give them a try for a unique flavor twist.
Now, let’s talk texture and crunch! To add an interesting dimension to our Sugar-Free Banana Bread, I love incorporating chia seeds and nuts. Chia seeds provide a delicate crunch, while the nuts bring a delightful density to each bite. As for the milk, you have the choice between the richness of classic cow’s milk and the lightness of almond milk, depending on your preferences.
Enough about what’s inside; let’s focus on the outside! We all know presentation matters. So why not add an aesthetic touch by placing a banana on top of your Banana Bread before baking? Not only does this result in an appealing visual outcome, but the rounded part of the banana will beautifully brown during baking, adding a golden touch to your creation.
