Now that I am working from home, I am feeling the need for something to snack on. And I like cake, but I also like to eat healthily. Actually, one of the benefits of working from home is that there isn't a constant supply of doughnuts and cookies being brought in, which I then feel is my duty to eat!
Anywho, my solution to this snacking problem? Banana bread! A super healthy banana bread at that! I have found recently that the foods we go through quickest are bananas and eggs. They can be used in pretty much anything can't they!? Chris has even been known to throw a banana in a curry! (I did not approve.) You may remember my Banana pancakes post which used solely bananas and eggs! Well here I have another recipe combining our two favourite ingredients.
I adapted the recipe from this blog. I really loved the idea it uses of adding cacao nibs, but I discovered that the pack I bought over a year ago had been polished off by Chris (how dare he!). So I opted for raisins instead.
This recipe uses no sugar, is wheat free, and requires almost no butter! It can actually be completely butter free if you desire! So it's pretty darn healthy, and it tastes great too. You can find the full recipe here, but below are the ingredients I used for my version.
1 cup wheat free flour blend
1/4 cup melted butter or coconut oil (I used half and half to get the best of both worlds!)
3 mashed bananas
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup agave nectar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
A good handful of raisins.
What is your favourite healthy snack?
