Banana bread – A healthy version!

So, my friend Sara made a kick butt banana bread a few weeks ago, and I wasn’t paying enough attention to remember her recipe. And then she wouldn’t tell me the recipe afterwards (thanks Sara! haha!) So I had to kind of come up with my own! So this version of banana bread has no butter, and no granulated sugar. Yes! Here we go!


Ingredients: (Makes 10 mini loaves)

-3/4 c avocado, mashed

-1 c pitted dates, finely chopped

-2 eggs

-3 ripened bananas

-1 1/3 tbsp milk

-2 c flour (additional flour if needed.)

-1 tsp baking soda

-1/2 c chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350f.

In a bowl, combine the avocado and the dates. Mix well. Add eggs, mix. Add milk, bananas, mix again (I just used a potato masher to do all of this mixing. You can use a blender if you prefer. I like the chunky bits in my bread!) Add flour and the baking soda. Mix until blended. Stir in the chocolate chips. Grease a couple loaf pans (I used a pan with 10 mini loaves) Add the batter to the pan. Bake for 20-30 mins depending on the size of your pans. It will be done once you can insert a tooth pick and have it be clean when it comes out.

This is an amazing recipe! You can’t even taste that there’s avocado’s and dates in there!!
