Healthier Banana Bread

Blenderbabes's picture
Make fresh banana bread batter in seconds with your high powered Blendtec or Vitamix blender! Better and faster than grandma used to make. :) Blender Babes adapted a popular recipe and made it healthier by using coconut oil, white whole wheat flour, and a healthier sugar option than white. Another trick of ours, we kept our banana bread moist by using yogurt.
