Recently I showed you how to make banana muffins and today I have another banana snack for you. I´ve already tried some banana bread recipes but this was by far the best I’ve ever done. I was a bit disappointed by my previous attempts to make banana bread because I like it very sweet and moist.

Which ingredients are important for an eggless banana bread recipe?

This eggless banana bread got so moist because I used oil this time. This gave the bread the perfect consistency. I used rapeseed oil because I didn’t have any other oil at home. Nevertheless, it became very tasty and didn’t have a funny aftertaste. I was a little afraid that you might taste it because rapeseed oil has a certain taste of its own, but luckily that wasn’t the case.

Additionally, the banana bread consists of natural sweetness through the bananas. However, it is not enough for me. You can just use natural sweetness especially if you want to make the banana bread healthier. I have added brown sugar. As you already know I’m addicted to chocolate, so I added chocolate powder. You can also skip the chocolate powder and add chocolate chips or skip chocolate completely. By the way, nuts are also delicious in or on top of the banana bread. Of course, this variation is also a bit healthier.

Tip: Make sure you use very ripe bananas. The riper they are, the sweeter your banana bread will be!

I’m also a big fan of spelt flour. This time I mixed spelt flour with oats and can only recommend it. I prefer to use spelt flour because it is a good alternative to wheat. In contrast to wheat, spelt is healthier and contains more protein, vitamins, and minerals. I prefer to use spelt flour for my standard pancakes recipe or the delicious fluffy pumpkin pancakes.

Gluten-free or Keto preparation

For a gluten-free preparation, you can mix oats with gluten-free flour, for example, buckwheat flour or almond flour. Or you don’t use any flour at all and just make banana bread from oats.

If you want to prepare the banana bread for the keto diet then as well leave out the sugar and use coconut oil for baking.

How to store the banana bread correctly

You´ll probably have some leftover slices of the banana bread 🙂 It is best to keep the bread in a lunch box in the fridge for about 3 to 5 days. So you can grab a slice to have a quick breakfast or snack-to-go. Isn´t that great?! I prefer to warm my bread shortly in the microwave and then a little cream on top… I think I have to make banana bread again 😀

Tip: The frozen banana bread lasts up to 3 months! Cut the bread into slices beforehand and freeze them.
