Skinny Mini Banana Bread

I decided to go out on a limb and try a recipe that required a bit of work. This banana bread did not disappoint. Not only is it DELICIOUS; it contains all-natural ingredients and is actually good for you. If you’re looking for a healthy + delicious alternative to satisfy your sweet tooth, look no further!

Skinny Mini Banana Bread

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup honey
  • 6 egg whites
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups smashed brown bananas
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats, pulsed to make oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips, divided

**The original recipe called for protein powder; however, I chose to leave this out :)

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream the coconut oil and honey.
  2. Add the egg whites, vanilla, and banana and mix again.
  3. Sift together the flour, pulsed oats, cinnamon, and baking soda. Slowly add the flour mixture alternately with the coconut milk to the banana mixture. Do not over mix.
  4. Stir in the shredded coconut and 1/2 cup chocolate chips by hand.
  5. Divide the batter into 4 small loaf pans that have been sprayed with non stick spray. (I used pans that are 3 1/2 inches by 7 inches)
  6. Bake at 350* for 35 minutes.
  7. Let cool in the pans for 10 minutes before flipping out onto cooling racks.
  8. Keep bread in a sealed container for 5-7 days, or freeze the extra loaves to have on hand for later.

*Makes 4 mini loaves.

    Hey, Amber! No- I don’t have the nutrition info for it. I had contacted the original owner of this recipe, and she admitted that she did not work up the nutrition information when she came up with the recipe. She suggested trying to input it into My Fitness Pal as a possible option.
