Who doesn’t love a good banana bread for breakfast? I like mine with a drizzle of honey and a mug of coffee to go with it. Yum!

This recipe is, as you might imagine, dairy-free. I use eggs from a local free-range farm. I tweaked a classic recipe a bit to provide more health benefits; I like my bread to be less sweet than the usual desert-like recipes, and I avoid the use of cane sugar. I use palm sugar and local raw honey, which are both sustainable sweeteners, and are lower on the glycemic index than sugar. I also use half whole wheat flour and throw in some flax seed meal for increased fiber. Instead of pure canola oil, I use a vegetable oil blend formulated for high Omega-3 content. Finally, we are blessed with fresh local pecans this time of year (I LOVE pecans!), but this recipe would be equally delicious with chopped hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, or walnuts.

This recipe makes a flavorful and very moist bread. Enjoy! Continue reading
