Does it get any better than chocolate and peanut butter? We think not. With this healthy Chocolate Chip Banana Bread recipe, you can still indulge in one of your favorite foods while trying to stay on track with healthy eating. Our version of the comfort food classic is made with only real ingredients and has less sugar than traditional versions. Oh, and did we mention it’s topped with a peanut butter drizzle?
To make this delicious recipe for breakfast or a snack, all you’ll need are a few simple ingredients like bananas, Greek yogurt, peanut butter, almond milk, eggs, and more. This recipe uses white whole wheat flour, which is milled from whole white wheat rather than “red” wheat, which makes it lighter in color and less bitter in flavor. But don’t worry! It has the same nutritional value of whole wheat flour, which we love!
All it takes is a few minutes to prepare your ingredients before baking. Even beginning bakers will be able to master this easy dish! Once it’s in the oven, the banana bread takes 40-45 minutes to cook; just try not to steal glances of it baking in the oven as the delicious smell starts to waft through your kitchen! Banana bread lovers won’t be able to get enough of the moist, delicious taste of this instant classic.
When you’re committed to working out and eating well, it’s important not to deprive yourself so much that you’re tempted to binge on fast foods and candy. But as long as you make healthified versions of your favorite treats (made with real ingredients you can pronounce and less sugar!) you can still indulge in the occasional dessert without feeling like you’ve derailed your diet.
