Delicious and Healthy Banana Bread Recipe

This healthy banana bread is a staple in our house.  Using banana flour, which is high in resistant starch and low on calories (and GI), we've been able to make a banana bread that tastes amazing.  This banana bread is unbelievably delicious, and everyone comments about how sweet it is, even though it uses only bananas as a sweetener and the main ingredient is zucchini!




  • 1 cup banana flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 small/med grated zucchini
  • 1small/med grated carrot (optional)
  • 4 extremely ripe banana (the more ripe the better for sweetness)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil (optional for a more moist/wet) banana bread)
  • 1-2 tablespoons coconut nectar (if bananas aren't ripe enough and you want it sweeter)


  1. Preheat oven to 180*C
  2. Blend all ingredients together stirring through grated zucchini and carrot last.
  3. Pour mix into a bread tin lined with baking paper or muffin tray greased a little with coconut oil to stop sticking.
  4. If using a muffin tray, Bake on 180*C for 20-30mins
  5. If using a bread tin, bake on 180*C for 30-4mins
  6. you will know it's ready when a knife inserted comes out clean

Little people LOVE this banana bread.  And it's so good for them!!!
