Get Nutty Whole Grain Banana Bread

Sharon Palmer

Banana bread is classic comfort food. My mother would always save the over-ripe bananas to use in her classic banana bread recipe. But it was none too healthy! Filled with sugars, oils and refined grains, many banana breads deserve a more healthful update. Enter my super-healthy, yet super-delicious get nutty whole grain banana bread! Completely vegan, it is thickened with the power of chia seeds instead of eggs. Plus it features 100% whole wheat flour, and just a small amount of added oil and sugar. That’s because 3 ripe bananas power the natural sweetness of this bread. Plus, it packs in 3 types of nuts, 2 types of seeds, and coconut! This combination of whole grains, fruits, nuts and seeds means this bread is filled with healthy fats, plant-powered proteins, fiber, and essential vitamins and minerals. You can feel good about packing this into kids’ lunch boxes, your work brown bag, or even feasting on it for breakfast.
