Banana bread addiction

A toasted slice of delicious smelling banana bread with a good coffee or chai latte? YES, please. Definitely one of my favourite treats. Quite obvious that I wanted to bake my own banana bread at home.

There are hundreds of banana bread recipes online. I tried a few recipes and adapted them to what works best for me and what I call a healthier version. See below if you wanna give it a try.


  • 1/3 cup melted butter (or coconut oil instead)
  • 1/2 cup honey (or maple syrup)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 medium sizes ripe bananas
  • 1/4 coconut milk (or any other milk of your choice)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 3/4 cup wholemeal flour (or your flour of choice)

How to:

  • Preheat oven to 170°C
  • Mix butter and honey in a bowl
  • Add and mix eggs, mashed bananas and milk
  • Add and mix baking soda, vanilla extract, salt and cinnamon
  • Carefully whisk in the flour
  • Spoon the mixture into pan
  • Sprinkle some more cinnamon on top (if you like)
  • Bake in preheated oven for 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean
  • Take it out of the oven and let it rest in the pan for 10 minutes, turn onto a wire rack for another 20 minutes

The bread tastes the best when toasted and optionally with a little bit of butter.
