1. Classic banana bread

The first recipe we have chosen for you is a classic version but without butter. In this way, we avoid incorporating saturated fats into the bread. The necessary contribution of fat so that it comes out wet and is well preserved is given by the oil. Thus, we advise you to opt for olive oil for its high nutritional value.

  • 200 ml of oil
  • 3 bananas
  • 200 ml milk

  10. Bake about half an hour or until the toothpick comes out dry.

2. Bread with seeds and nuts

To the valuable nutritional contribution of bananas, we add the benefits of seeds and nuts. In this case, we opted to incorporate sunflower and flax seeds. Of course, you can add those nuts and seeds that you like the most. To obtain a greater fiber contribution, we use whole flour instead of ordinary flour.
