Healthy Banana Bread Squares

 

Who doesn’t love some fresh homemade banana bread? It is one of those classic delicious baked goods that fills the whole house with warmth and happiness. Many of the traditional recipes you may find, however, likely pack in over a cup of added sugar with refined flour and butter. The recipe you will find here has no added sugar, a generous amount of fiber, healthy fats and a whole lot of vitamins and minerals.

 

With this recipe I came up with, you are less than 10 ingredients away from a healthy, hearty, nutrient- packed spin off of the typical banana bread. This recipe allows the natural sweetness of the bananas to take charge. You’ll find a wholesome and nutty flavor with a nutrition label that will complement a high fiber, low glycemic, heart healthy diet very well.

The following table briefly points out the nutrient standouts of each ingredient, along with each individuals calorie and macronutrient contribution to the entire recipe (8 servings). Knowledge is power! Understanding what is in the food you eat and a rough idea of where those numbers on the nutrition label come from can be extremely valuable. Check it out for a breakdown of this recipe:
