I haven't done a recipe post since my healthy bride blog! This was exciting to me because I FINALLY mastered banana bread! I've tried various recipes and ingredients and this batch was by far....the biggest hit in my household! My son and husband loved it and I even made an exrta loaf for my parent's house to enjoy.
I like to tweak recipes to benefit health and I made one alteration that I'm very proud of in this recipe.
My son's craft paper was all I had handy at the time. LOL! If you can't read the bottom, it says:
1. In a medium bowl, mix your whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinammon.
2. In a large bowl, mix the sugar, coconut oil, egg whites, mashed bananas, milk, and vanilla.
3. Then, mix in the flour mix. Slowly mix in the chocolate chips.
4. Place in your 9x5 loaf pans and bake for 50 mins at 350 degrees.
Instead of canola oil, I like to use extra virgin coconut oil. It's very heart healthy and gives the bread a little more sweetness. I can't get enough of this stuff! I use it in my stirfries, spread it like butter on my toast, or anywhere butter or oil is needed. For this recipe, I used a whole cup of it.
