Recipe: (The Best!) Healthy Banana Bread

Healthy Banana Bread Recipe - low fat, gluten free, sugar free, healthy, clean eating friendly, breakfast banana bread

Ummm, so.... I have a confession... I'm kinda sorta a banana bread snob. A nicer way to put it would be that I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to banana bread - or maybe I'm like Goldilocks...

It has to be just right. Just dense enough, moist enough, banana-y enough - you know the drift. 

I've tried just about every banana bread recipe there is, but I've never been content. I've tried "The Best Ever Banana Bread Recipe"s the "Ultimate Banana Bread Recipe"s, "The Only Banana Bread Recipe You'll Ever Need" - but they weren't perfect. 

So I did what I do best - I kept on trying new combinations because just one tiny little thing could have been better - until now....

You see, when I was younger, Mum would occasionally buy or make us banana bread as a special treat. Warm and toasted with butter - crispy crunchy edges and soft dense centres. 

But I didn't want banana cake bread filled with sugar and three tonnes of butter. I wanted to create a healthy version that was still absolutely perfect - and you'll be happy to know I succeeded! 

After batch after batch after batch, I've come up with the perfect fail proof recipe. There's no funky ingredients and there's also no sugar, no oil, no gluten and only a tiny little bit of butter.

What I created was a Healthy Banana Bread Recipe that was all of what good banana bread should be - but without all of the extra baggage banana bread usually has. I wanted a recipe that was healthy enough to eat for breakfast because, well, who doesn't want banana bread for breakfast?! 

Jesse and I were obsessed from the first bite - and enjoyed a slice of our banana bread toasted and topped with butter for breakfast with a side of fresh fruit. Jesse tried all of his usual tricks - telling me "oh Kristy, you forgot to give me breakfast this morning", trying to hide the banana bread so I wouldn't eat it, suddenly feigning amnesia so he could get another slice - and now he watches the ripening bananas like a hawk waiting for another batch of banana bread to be made. 

This is seriously the only banana bread recipe you need because it's so so good - so good, in-fact, the even my fussy Mama gave it the thumbs up!

Recipe: Peanut Butter Stuffed French Toast

Low Fat Peanut Butter Stuffed French Toast Recipe on Cinnamon Raisin Bread - gluten free, low fat, healthy, sugar free, clean eating friendly

As a child, I thought that French Toast was one of the grossest things on the planet... 

I always hated eggs, even as a baby I'd poke my tongue through my tightly clamped lips, taste it and quickly hide my tongue back away and refused to eat it. As I got older, I would whine every time my family ate eggs because I hated the smell (and the rest of my family love eggs so that happened a lot) and refused to use any dishes that still "smelt like egg" - even after they'd been washed twice in the dishwasher. 

Everything to do with eggs grossed me out - the smell, the taste, the texture - so naturally, the idea of egg soaked bread served up for breakfast repulsed me.... 

But then I married an American.

On one of Jesse's first trips here, I made him French Toast (when you're good in the kitchen, that's how you impress your love interests - and clearly, the strategy worked). At the time I was still 110% anti-eggs but I sucked up my hatred and made him a delicious breakfast.

But then I was intrigued..... It didn't smell so bad, it didn't look so bad - surely it couldn't taste so bad?

It took me a while to pluck up the courage to try French Toast, but eventually I did. At first, it was too eggy - but then I kept fiddling with my recipe until I perfected it and I actually found myself liking french toast.

But how did I do that? Well, being the peanut butter queen I stuffed the french toast with peanut butter, of courseeeeeeeee! The outsides are crispy with a soft, gooey peanut butter centre - and making this recipe on cinnamon raisin bread only makes it even better. 

So let me give you the recipe >>
