Banana Nut Sweet Bread

Delicious Banana Nut Sweet Bread for Health

Give us this day our daily bread (Matthew 6:11).

This portion of the Lord’s prayer is a wonderful reminder to ask and praise God for His perfect provision.  I celebrate the goodness of our Lord with this sweet, nutty, flavorful, moist cake labeled as bread.  You will be amazed with the taste of this bread that is free of refined sugar, gluten, and dairy.  I’m dancing in celebration already!

Enjoy this recipe for breakfast, a snack, or even as dessert (delicious with a dollop of coconut yogurt on top).  You can’t go wrong with this banana nut bread or the recipe.  My results with my recipe are consistently delicious every time.  (I love consistent results.)

Are you ready for today’s tasty star of sweetness?

This is an informative article showing 7 Wonderful Benefits of Banana (and ideas for how to include the fruit in your daily diet).

When disease hits, God taps you on the noggin and says, “Hello?”  “Wake Up!”  “Take Notice!  I am doing a new thing!” (Isaiah 43:19)

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up, do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. Click To Tweet

That verse has consumed my mind lately.  (What is God up to?)  Also, the word relevant keeps cropping up somewhere along each day.  I don’t know what it all means, but I’ll let you know as soon as I figure it out.  What does that have to do with banana bread?  Not sure of that either, exactly, except that this new banana bread thing has added a new joy to my eating style.

Learning to cook again in a different way – a healthier way – is hard at first.  If you are struggling to change to a healthier eating style, there are now no worries about healthy sweets!  You can enjoy many health boosting treats that taste deliciously sweet with no refined sugars, gluten, or dairy (if that’s an issue for you).  Eating the right sweet foods no longer comes with a “don’t touch!” warning label (and easy with an end to sugar addiction).  You don’t have to feel guilty indulging in unhealthy treats because replacing them with healthy options is very easy with the right recipes.

I was shocked by how tasty this banana bread was when I replaced the flour in Dani Spees’ original Best Healthy Banana Bread recipe with my Gluten-Free Flour Blend – Soft and Fluffy!

You could also use Trim Healthy Mama Gluten-Free Flour Blend* if you are limited on time.  I replaced the sweetener in Dani’s recipe with Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet*, and I added chopped fresh pecans to the top of my loaf before baking.  Yummy!

I can tell this will be a regular around my house when we have visitors.  It tastes as good as any “regular” banana bread like I made before restoring my temple.  Here is the printable recipe with my changes for your convenience.

    Happy weekend dear friend! I would so love to share a piece of your delicious and healthy banana bread with you! I read all of your posts, I don’t always comment. Life is so busy, but good. We are expecting the arrival of Emma Kennedy in about four weeks! I still keep Ella Mae Mon.-Wed. each week!

    I hope you are doing well, I think of you often and pray for you! May God bless you immensely!

    With love, Pam

      Thank you, Pam. I hope you and your family are having a great weekend, too. I love how Emma K. and Ella Mae rhyme! 🙂 I know you’re excited (an understatement, surely). I’m glad you are reading along, Pam, but don’t feel guilty for not commenting on every post. You have a lot going on. Like us all, we must choose how to best use our time. I’m flattered that you spend your time reading my posts – or that anyone does, for that matter. Hugs, my friend! 🙂

    Kim, this sounds very good! Hope to try it soon. Always have bananas getting too ripe. Thanks for sharing.

  • Kathi

    I just am putting together these ingredients and using coconut palm sugar because I don’t have the THM. I’ll let you know how it turns out. I’m just wondering how much time I should put them in the oven to do muffins? Also, I have found that I can freeze right bananas in a big Ziploc bag one next to each other and pull them out as needed. This is a really good idea with smoothies too.

    • Kim

      Hi, Kathi! I use the same way of freezing bananas but break them in half first since I use a half for each smoothie. I try to keep the bananas separated in the bag until frozen solid, sort of spacing them from touching one another. Thanks for sharing your tip! As far as the muffins, other muffin recipes usually cook well in about 25-30 minutes at 350. Maybe check them at 20, 25, and 30 minutes (or longer) until yours are done. Yum, the coconut sugar sounds delicious. Let us know what’s the sweet spot of oven timing for the muffins, OK? Hugs and blessings! 🙂

        I did the muffins for 20 minutes but next time I will aim at 25. Keeping them in frig and just me ccing them for 10 seconds to warm them up when I take one out. My husband really really likes them too. I have a bunch of ripe bananas and I’m gonna make up a triple batch and freeze them for quick grabbing. Thank you very much. Also I folded most of the pecans Into the batter and just reserved a little bit for sprinkling on top. Thank you again.

        • Kim

          I’m thrilled, Kathi! A bonus is that your husband likes them. Yay for easy-grab muffins. Thanks so much for reporting back what you did and your results. You rocked it! 🙂

      Hi, Kimberly! I’m not an expert and quite out of practice after losing weight from cancer issues. But . . . In reading the ingredients, I’m thinking XO. I hope you like this bread as much as I do. Thanks for stopping by, and Merry Christmas! 🙂
