JSHealth Signature Banana Bread

What’s so good about this bread?

It’s free of refined sugars, white flours, salt and saturated fats, which are present in the traditional version!

It’s a great source of potassium, an essential mineral for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function.

Perfect for the kiddies school lunch or afternoon tea!  They will not know the difference!  You can freeze it so its ready when you need it!

I have been topping my pieces with almond butter or peanut butter….yum!

 

JSHealth Signature Banana Bread

 

Makes: 1 loaf

Ingredients:

Dry:

  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 1/2 cup LSA mix/ground flaxseeds
  • 1/4 cup psyllium husk
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3-4 dates, chopped
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, crushed

Wet:

  • 2-3 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 3 organic, free-range eggs
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 2 tsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tbsp maple syrup/raw honey

 

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 160°.
  2. Place all dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir until combined.
  3. Combine wet ingredients, either mixing them by hand or processing in a food processor/blender.
  4. Slowly add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  5. Lightly oil a loaf tin with some coconut oil, then line with baking paper.
  6. Spoon batter into the tin and bake for 45-60 minutes until golden and cooked through – insert a skewer to test, it should come out dry.
  7. Once cooked, remove from oven and allow it to cool in tin.
  8. When cool, turn tin upside down and remove loaf. Slice loaf into 12 slices.

 

Notes:

  • I have decorated the top of my banana bread (before baking) with some sliced banana and a light sprinkle of cinnamon.

    Hi Jess,

    You’ve mentioned in the ingredients to add 1/2 cup almond milk but in the Method, there is no mention of it –
    Is milk needed?

    Thanks!

  • Olena

    Hi Jessica,

    Thank you for the lovely recipes you post. I tried making the loaf yesterday and it came out moist and slightly sticky inside. Is it supposed bake right through? I had it in the oven for well over an hour.

    Thank you 🙂

    • hmmm perhaps leave out the milk and try again? I am sad to hear that. Mine was fine today.

  • Hi, Is almond meal necessary? Because i have tried finding it, but to no avail 🙁

    Is there any ingredients that could be used to substitute it?

  • Jen

    It was the best banana bread I have ever eaten. Soooooo good!

  • Erin

    Made the banana bread this afternoon and not only did it make my house smell fantastic, but it tasted amazing!
    Thanks for such a wonderful recipe! I will definitely be making this for years to come!

    Hi,

      • Joolz

    Hey there Jess,
    Lovely recipe, I made it last week! I wanted to make it again today but am out of almond meal. I noticed Zoe asked if coconut flour could be used instead? You suggested she used 1/2 a cup of coconut flour- will this be enough to replace 2 cups of almond meal? Do I need to add anything else to give me substance ie, oat flour or other ground nuts?

  • Tracey

    As I have celiac I am always looking for bread alternatives. And banana bread is my favourite and this recipe has not let me down! It’s taste amazing! I was a little short for time so instead of making a loaf I bread I but the mixture into muffins trays and made 18 muffins out if it 🙂 I also added some cocao chips to half the batch as a have a little sweet tooth 😉 thank you so much Jessica for the recipe idea! Can’t wait to try out some more 🙂

    • yum! so happy you enjoyed 😉

  • Jenny p.

    Hi, I don’t want eegs. , can you tell me how can I substitute them? Please
    Thanks! !

  • Dani

    Hi Jess,

    I was just wondering how often you eat these kind of treats?

  • laura

    Hi Jessica –

    Not sure what I did wrong but my banana bread was quite doughy ! I did use plain wholemeal flour instead of almond meal (and I only used 1 and 1/2 cups). Would this have been the reason why??

  • Lindsay

    Can you use coconut oil instead of coconut butter?

  • Alyce

    This looks and sounds delicious! I am going to make it right now 🙂 do you have any idea about the calorie intake of this recipe? Thanks! 🙂

  • Ange

    I just made this today, so delicious, especially warm out of the oven! I substituted almonds instead of walnuts. I also made the carrot and walnut loaf last week and loved it, thanks for the recipes!

  • jay

    Great recipe, though you should know that coconut butter/oil is a saturated fat. That said saturated fats are good for you so – great recipe.

  • Vivienne

    Thanks. A great recipe!

  • Jade

    I just made this it’s amazing so yummy 🙂
    Look forward to trying more of your recipes

    Thanks xx

  • mj
