Healthy Banana Date Bread Recipe

A Reader Recipe: Banana Date Bread

This healthy banana bread recipe from FitSugar reader JuicyNoelle looks delicious. She posted this recipe in our Healthy Recipe group.

Banana bread has been one of my favorite foods since I was a little girl. I usually follow a classic banana bread recipe, but this weekend I was inspired to try a little something different. Instead of white flour, I used a whole wheat pastry flour (a healthier alternative to white all-purpose flour). I also included an extra banana, some chia seeds (packed with omega-3s), and a few walnuts (also rich in omega-3s). I also opted to use some dates to help sweeten up the bread instead of so much sugar. It turned out beautifully. I hope you enjoy this bread as much as I do!

See the recipe after the break!

Ingredients
2 cups organic whole wheat pastry flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup organic butter
1 1/2 cups natural cane sugar
2 medium organic eggs
1 very ripe banana, mashed
1 very ripe banana, roughly chopped
1/3 cup almond milk (I recommend Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Milk)
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup chia seeds
2/3 cup dates, fresh or dry
