Refined Sugar Free Banana Loaf Recipe

As regular readers would already know, I’ve given up Refined Sugar for lent. Yes, I am crazy. It’s Day 6 as I’m writing this and I haven’t got any cravings yet, and I’m crossing my fingers that they don’t make an appearance. I’m not finding it too difficult this time around. I was making Breakfast on Sunday morning and came across 2 very ripe bananas and wondered whether I could make a Sugar Free Banana Loaf by adapting my recipe. Well I gave it a go, with a lot of guess work on the ingredients and it actually turned out really well. I thought it was only fair to share the recipe with you in case anyone else if trying to limit their sugar intake.

This is naturally sweetened with bananas and honey. I have used an extra banana and have also swapped the butter for coconut oil to make this a little healthier. You can use 110g butter if you’d rather. I have also added natural vanilla and cinnamon to sweeten.

Sugar Free Banana Loaf

Ingredients: 

Makes 1 Loaf

110g coconut oil (melted)

120g honey

2 medium eggs

200g plain flour

1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

 60ml milk

3 ripe bananas (mashed)

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

Method:

Preparation: 10 minutes | Baking: 1 hour 20 minutes

1. Preheat oven to 180°c/160°c fan. Grease and line a loaf tin.

2. Melt your coconut oil in the microwave to ensure the mixture doesn’t go lumpy. Add this to a bowl with your eggs, honey, vanilla and milk and stir until combined.

3. Add the dry ingredients and bananas to the mixture and stir again.

4. Pour the mixture in to your prepared loaf tin. Place in the oven for 1 hour 20 minutes, checking at regular intervals after 50 minutes. Bake until golden brown and a skewer/knife comes out clean. Leave to cool.

Will you be baking this Sugar Free Banana Loaf? Do you have any Sugar Free recipes to share?

Until next time,

    This looks great. I’m trying to eat healthy right now, but am not really following a plan as much, although many of the recipes I’m trying are Slimming World friendly as that is the diet plan I know the most about. I will definitely give this a try, it’s a great healthier alternative for one of my favourite things!

    I love that it’s sugar free. I’ve been trying my best to stay away from sugar ever since I started focusing on my fitness and my health. This is definitely something that I wouldn’t mind making.

    It looks smooth and soft. I just might try doing this. I usually buy from a local maker. But sometimes, I also like to do things at home, like bake for my family.

    We recently made a banana bread and I find that you have to use so much sugar, so this is great as it gives us an alternative with less.

      It’s mad isn’t it when you realise how much sugar goes into baking, I’m loving using alternatives.

    That’s amazing. Keep going, I have tried no refined sugar challenge for 30 days. Initially I had my cravings, but later on I naturally inclined to less/no sweet food or natural foods.

    Love banana loaf, actually I love anything with bananas! Good for you on giving up refined sugar for lent, but I don’t think I could do it.

    I love sweets made with bananas! I use it as a daily energizer and I often replace fatter ingredients with it. I must try your loaf, quite similar to the one i make

    When I see sugar-free foods, it joys my heart! Not only does this look tasty but also healthy. I really think this recipe would be perfect for our magazine called DiabetEASE. We have a section there that features diabetes-friendlt recipes that we can share with our readers. 🙂

      It makes me feel a little less guilty when I know something is sugar free. That sounds interesting, my Grandma is diabetic, I’ll have to share that with her.
