Watch out! This banana bread recipe is probably the healthiest and most decadent one out there. Featured in my cookbook Collations énergisantes*, it was created in order to offer a genuinely wholesome and easy-to-make option. Bona fide banana bread WITH NO ADDED REFINED SUGAR that you can eat for breakfast, as a snack and even for dessert.
Has the bar been set too high? It’s exactly where it’s supposed to be.
But honestly, gone are the days when you’d put refined sugar in everything and everywhere. Hahaha!
*Available in French only for now.
If you decide to eat this banana bread prior to physical exercise, but you have a more sensitive stomach, you can make this recipe without the nuts. Because walnuts have a higher fat content, they can take a little longer to digest and this can cause some discomfort during high-intensity training.
If you make this recipe using wheat flour instead of oat flour, reduce the amount to ¼ cup. Why? Because oat flour tends to soak up all the liquid.
