Looking for a snack that the kids will love without the extra sugar? Try our favourite sugar free banana bread recipe! Now I can’t take all the credit for this one, we stumbled across it a while ago but it is quite possibly my favourite thing to make! It is soft on the inside and honestly you would not be able to tell that there is no sugar in this! Even the harshest critics will love this one! It is super easy to make and besides the baking time it will take you about ten minutes. It is super easy to knock together before the school run and just as you are about to leave the house it will be nice and warm coming out of the oven. You could even wrap it in foil and it will more than likely still be hot by recess.

Bake time: 1 hour
300g peeled banana’s
1/2 cup light coconut milk
1 1/2 cups of plain flour
1 tsp of bi carb soda
1 tbsp baking powder
2 tsp of lemon juice
115g light butter
3/4 cup of nativa
1 tsp vanilla

Step 5: Add the egg & Vanilla to the creamed butter and beat together until the ingredients are combined.

Step 7: Fold the flour through until the ingredients are just combined. Avoid over mixing.
Step 8: Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer comes out clean.
Step 9: Cool on a wire then cut into 12 slices
As a garnish, you could also slice a banana in half and place it on the top of the mix. Or we also love to garnish with coconut flakes (chefs kiss)! *See photos for reference.
This recipe is served perfectly on its own or you could add some fruit and cream (or ice-cream if your feeling extra adventurous!)
