Hello world! Thank you for visiting Antonia and me on our Blog. We hope you will enjoy our first post and all future posts we will share with you. If you like what we do, leave us some kind words in the comments 🙂 .

Who wasn’t already on at least one diet? Ok, I see. Almost everyone, me included has been on a diet so far. You know in my 38 years I tried many different diets and some were really boring and sometimes extraordinary awful 😉 . So about 2 years ago I started to change my habits about food. I was fed up with being on a constant diet and I hated to always forgo dishes I really loved. I’m not on a diet any longer but instead on a journey on finding my own healthy lifestyle for me and my family and this healthy banana bread fits perfectly into it 🙂 .

Super easy, delicious and healthy banana bread

So this delicious healthy banana bread is one of my go to recipes when we need something sweet but don’t want to feel guilty with every bite we take.

I’m always searching for a good recipe which really tastes great and not bland. On my weekends you will most definitely find me in my kitchen trying to develop new recipes and yes sometimes my kitchen resembles a battlefield 😉 .

This healthy Banana Bread is ready for baking in only 10 minutes and its a one bowl thing. Yes, that’s my kind of recipe 🙂 . Its the perfect sunday afternoon treat.

Healthy Banana Bread with honey cream cheese glaze

So let’s get started. First we need those reeealy ripe bananas, yes the almost dead ones, yes they are black too. But not all bananas just 3. We need the last one for decorating. Mash the 3 bananas with 2 tablespoons of hot water. This way its much easier. After that we put the mashed bananas and all the other ingredients, except the optional ones, into a bowl and give them a good mix. About 2-3 minutes. Instead of mixing them in your Kitchen Aid you could blend everything in a blender. If you think its a little bit to try just add some milk or water.

After everything is combined, there comes the glorious moment where we can add all the optional things to the batter like walnuts, chopped 85%dark chocolate, goji berries or chia seeds or whatever else you like. But keep in mind that it should still be healthy so please no white chocolate drops or m&ms 😉 .

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and and put some extra coconut sugar and cinnamon on top. Please don’t go overboard with the sugar just because its a natural sweetener. 1 tablespoon coconut sugar and one teaspoon cinnamon will do the job just fine <3

Put the pan into the preheated oven at 350F° or 170C° and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. During the baking we can prepare the honey cream cheese glaze. Mix together 1/3 cup cream cheese, 2 tablespoon honey and a pinch of salt and set aside. When the loaf is ready let it cool at room temperature for about 50 minutes. After that transfer the banana bread onto a plate and drizzle it with the glaze.

The perfect healthy tread

Have I already told you that I love this recipe? Yes?!? Ok but did you know that this recipe is not only full with good fibres, no the added greek yoghurt enhances the bread with natural proteins too. That means if you are into sports with weights like maybe crossfit this would be good for you too.

Enjoy the banana bread and let me know how you liked it! Tag us with one of our recipes on social media @twosisterslivinglife and get a feature in our story as a thank you!
