Healthy Banana Bread

Healthy Banana Bread

With our new lunchbox collection launching soon, I’ll be sharing recipes over the next couple of weeks that are lunchbox friendly and suitable for BLW. This banana bread recipe is a winner and it’s super healthy too! Save this for next time you’re in the mood for baking.



⅓ cup (75 grams) Extra-virgin olive oil (you can also use coconut oil)
½ cup honey
2 eggs
2 large bananas
¼ cup milk
1 teaspoon Bi-Carb of Soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon,
1 ¾ cups (220 grams) white flour


🍌 Preheat oven to 165 degrees Celsius and grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan.

🍌 Beat the oil and honey together with a whisk. Add the eggs and beat well, then whisk in the mashed bananas and milk.

🍌 Add the baking soda, vanilla, salt and cinnamon, and whisk to blend. Lastly, switch to a big spoon and stir in the flour, just until combined. Some lumps are ok!

🍌 Pour the batter into your greased loaf pan

🍌 Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean). Let the bread cool in the loaf pan for at least 10 minutes. You may need to run a butter knife around the edges to loosen the bread from the pan. Carefully transfer the loaf to a wire rack to cool before slicing
