Cooking light banana bread: easy as one-two-three

Not very sweet, moderately moist, with a rich flavor and whole healthy ingredients, without glasses of butter, eggs, and sugar. A cool, healthy alternative to cupcakes with a taste of home banana bread.

It is better to use the ingredients listed first: take almond milk, but if you do not want to do it (and it’s easy and fast), take soy or regular yogurt from cow’s milk. Try to use the seeds of vanilla pods, but if you have not found – only then vanillin. Try maple syrup, but if you don’t have it – liquid honey will do. In addition to nuts and dried fruits, add chocolate chips for baking.

Cooking light banana bread

  • 1/4 cup of milk (almond, soybean, rice, cashew or any other nut, as a last resort, regular nonfat yogurt)
  • 6 tablespoons of olive or coconut oil
  • 6 tablespoons of maple syrup or liquid honey
  • vanilla pod seeds, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or a pinch of vanillin
  • 5 medium bananas
  • 2 cups of flour (you can take 50/50 wheat and oatmeal just by whipping oat flakes to powder in a blender, use hollow flour or at least second class flour)
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup of nuts and dried fruits

Heat the oven to 180C. Place parchment paper on the baking mold and pour a little flour on it. Mix milk, butter, syrup, vanilla, and bananas in a blender and whisk to puree. In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients, mix and add the banana mixture to them. Mix all the ingredients and pour them into a dish for baking. Bake for 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the depth of the mold. Check if ready with a wooden stick or toothpick – the dough must not stick.

If you’re looking for a low-calorie bread recipe, you could always use a sugar substitute instead of syrup.

  • 3 medium bananas
  • 2 tablespoon of dark raisins
  • 5 tablespoon of oatmeal (fine grinding or quick-cooking)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

All ingredients are blended in a blender until smooth: egg whites and bananas are well beaten, raisins are chopped into small pieces. Heat the frying pan. If you have a good non-stick frying pan and you are sure of it, no extra oil can be added. If you think it’s better to grease – grease with any vegetable oil before frying each pancake, but not much.
Using a large spoon, place the dough in a heated pan and bake the pancakes until they brown for about 3 minutes on each side.


  1. Don’t be in a hurry to flip them over
  2. Give the pancakes a good browning to a brown crust. It’s very dark because of the raisins. Pancakes should be baked + flipped browned much easier.
  3. Don’t make the dough more liquid or thicker, the proportions are written correctly.
  4. You can add vanilla or cinnamon, to taste.
    You could add a couple of spoons of jam instead of raisins
