Healthy vegan pumpkin Banana bread – Sweetener and spices.

First of all I love, love, LOVE sweet treats, especially during the colder seasons. But…I can’t eat sugar loaded things every day . I already own “gentle” curves 😉. Thats why I regularly have to come up with recipes that still taste great and satisfy my sweet tooth but aren’t loaded with unhealthy carbs and refined sugar.

How do I sweeten this recipe

  • very ripe bananas – its a classic, right? Nothing is sweeter than almost dead bananas.🙈
  • Dates – It’s another great source to add sweetness to your recipes.
  • Sugar crust: I have to be honest with you, this recipe has a sugar cinnamon crust. I added it because I have to sell that healthier pumpkin bread to my husband and kids. The crust contains 1-2 tbsp of brown sugar, cinnamon and pumpkin seeds. It makes this bread just a little bit more fancy and special and nobody will know that its healthy 🙈. The crust is optional of course.

The best way to use dates is to first soak them in hot water for 2 hours and afterwards train them and blend into a paste . This way you alway have a ready to use natural sweeter in your fridge. I pour the date paste into a glass with a screw lid and leave it in the fridge. If you aren’t baking on a regularly base you can freeze the paste in small badges and thaw it whenever you need it.

This is a super easy moist and healthy recipe for a vegan low sugar Pumpkin Banana bread . It's sweetness comes from the ripe Bananas of course and from the added dates. The added spices makes this bread perfect for a little fall afternoon treat. I topped the bread with a cinnamon sugar crust made of 2 tbsp brown sugar mixed with coarsely ground pumpkin seeds and cinnamon. The only real sugar used in this recipe.
