Healthier One-bowl Banana Bread!


A Healthier One-bowl Banana Bread recipe that tastes incredible?! Count us in! Soft, moist, made with whole wheat flour and naturally sweetened with maple syrup and bananas! We have been making this recipe on repeat in our kitchen and we know you’ll be doing the same!


Units Scale

3 large overripe bananas

1/3 cup vegetable oil (or melted coconut oil)

1/2 cup maple syrup, or honey

1/4 cup any kind of milk

2 large eggs

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour (or all-purpose)

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon


1. In a large bowl, mash together 3 large overripe bananas. Add in 1/3 cup vegetable oil, 1/2 cup maple syrup, 1/4 cup milk, 2 large eggs, and 1 tsp. vanilla extract. Whisk that until combined.

2. To that, add in 1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon. Fold that in with a spatula, and mix just until combined. Don’t overmix, or your banana bread will turn out dense.

3. Transfer batter to a lined baking pan, and bake at 350 for 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool for about 30 minutes. Now you’re ready to slice and enjoy!
