Bananas are one of the cheaper fruits available all year around so why buy banana bread at a store when you can make your own bread at home. Bananas are very nutritious and rich in potassium which helps maintain blood pressure levels and heart functioning. Making homemade banana bread from scratch is a healthy option for your family because of all the preservatives and artificial flavors that are added to store-bought banana bread. Dessert recipes that use ripe bananas are healthier and wholesome and also help in cutting down the white sugar. Because of the nutritional value of banana in this recipe, this dessert is not only a great way of getting kids to eat healthily but also allows them to enjoy a much deserved sweet treat.
There is so much you can add to make this banana bread recipe even more interesting. For instance, you make cupcakes using this recipe or even healthy breakfast muffins by adding grated carrots and zucchini or nuts for a delicious crunch. To cut down the calories, you can substitute the white flour with other types of flour like whole wheat, spelt or even gluten-free flour. For an edgy taste, you can put some delicious cream cheese frosting and top it with toasted coconut flakes. If you prefer a healthier frosting option, then combine mashed bananas with Greek yogurt and smear it on top of the banana bread once it is cooled. Alternately, you can smother it with a layer of unsalted peanut butter for extra protein or add dark chocolate chips to it. Try adding marshmallow fluff with caramel drizzle. Choose what suits your palate the most or the way your guests prefer.
