Fresh baked banana bread is one of the most comforting things to have in your kitchen. It should always start with fully ripe bananas, as it adds natural sweetness to the bread. And what’s great about my recipe is that it contains no added sugar at all! Well, there’s a tiny sprinkling of brown sugar on top but you can omit if you want. Also, chocolate chips are a nice addition if you don’t mind a little sugar.
The batter is sweetened by the ripe bananas and dates. I used a blender to mix all the wet ingredients, so no need to chop the dates. You can adjust how sweet you want your bread by adding more bananas or dates. To make it even healthier, I used whole wheat flour and a little bit of oats. You can store this sugar-free banana bread in the fridge for about a week.
Sugar-Free Banana Bread Recipe
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease loaf pan with coconut oil (or butter), then mix crumb topping together in a small bowl and set both aside.
Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl. Add bananas (reserve 1 for later if you like banana chunks), dates, eggs, and coconut oil (or butter) into a blender. Puree until smooth. Mix the batter into the dry ingredients until no lumps. Chop remaining banana and add to batter. Mix in chocolate chips (if using).
Pour batter into greased loaf pan and sprinkle crumb topping on top. Bake for 50-60 minutes. Cool before serving.
