Clean Eating | Dairy Free Banana Bread

Thursday, 26 June 2014

Hey HoneyBee's

After my Clean Eating lifestyle post (here) a few of you asked me to post some Clean recipes. So, I am excited to be sharing with you today my favourite clean chocolate chip banana bread recipe, and as an added bonus - this one is also dairy free!


Banana bread has always been one of my mums favourite treats and I love to make it for her, but I love this one even more as I know I can enjoy it too! It is moist, chocolatey and so, so yummy!
The beauty of banana's is that they are so sweet on their own, so you really don't need to add any extra sugar!



Lets start with what you will need!


Olive Oil / Spray Oil
. 1 & 1/2 Cup whole wheat flour  (Or 1 cup Gluten-free Oat Flour and 1/2 cup Coconut Flour if you're going Gluten free!)
. 1 & 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
. 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
. 2 slightly beaten egg whites
. 3 medium or 2 large mashed ripe bananas (the riper the better!)
. I bag dairy free chocolate chips
. 1/2 cup natural honey
. 1/4 cup coconut oil , softened (I get mine here)
. A pinch of salt


This recipe is so simple, so let's start by pre-heating the oven to 170 C / 350F.



. Coat your loaf tin with olive oil / Spray oil and set aside.
. Un-peel and mash your bananas in a separate bowl, setting aside.
. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and set aside.



. Using a large bowl, combine egg whites, banana, honey and coconut oil. Once mixed well, add the flour mixture to banana mixture stir until moist. The batter should be lumpy, so do not over stir.
. Mix the chocolate chips in to the batter and Spoon the mixture into loaf pan.
. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes.


. Let bread cool for about 10-15 minutes prior to cutting.

That's it! This banana bread is so delicious and knowing that it is full of clean, good ingredients is so comforting, too!
It's so yummy to eat warm, its crispy on the outside and soft & chewy on this inside! Do not worry if it doesn't rise as much as your usual banana bread does, its very dense and flavourful so a little goes a long way!

I really hope you guys enjoyed this recipe and please let me know what clean food ideas you would like to see next!
