Sugar-free, honey sweetened banana bread

These banana loaves were sweetened with honey instead of granulated sugar and using 3-4 very ripe bananas which added to the sweetness too.

Let me know how it goes! Thanks for reading/trying the recipe.


2 ½ cups all purpose flour
1 T baking powder
1/4 t fine sea salt
3-4 very ripe bananas, slightly mashed
3/4 cup neutral cooking oil (vegetable, light olive, canola, coconut)
1/2 t vanilla
2 eggs
3/4 cup honey
1/3 cup sour cream or plain yogurt (optional; use milk instead)
1 ½ c chopped walnuts (optional)


Preheat oven to 375° F

Brush your pan with oil and sprinkle with flour; tap out excess flour. Otherwise line with parchment paper.

Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl, except the walnuts.
In another bowl, whisk the wet ingredients.

Make a hole in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients in it.
Combine but do not overmix; globs of unmixed batter is okay.

Add in the walnuts. Again, do not overmix

Pour in prepared loaf pans. Bake until golden brown and slightly cracked on top. To be sure, they are done when a barbecue stick or toothpick inserted towards the bottom of the thickest part of the loaf comes out dry-about 30-35 minutes, depending upon the loaf pan used (glass, light metal, dark metal, etc.).

Cool for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
