Banana is the cheapest available year round fruit. It happens to be MY favourite fruit too. Besides making perfect on the go snack wisely “pre-packaged” by the Mother Nature, banana can do so much more for your health and menu repertoire.

Banana is a natural sweetener.
Its meaty texture makes a great base for healthy desserts.
It makes baked goods moist.
It’s full of potassium, fiber and vitamins.
Homemade banana baked goodies replace sugar loaded store-bought snacks.

Healthy Banana Bread

Tracy says: “This is the BEST banana bread I’ve ever made. I was out of applesauce and too lazy to make some, so I used an extra banana. The lightest banana bread I’ve ever made. Thank you.”

And I agree with Tracy. It’s THE BEST healthy banana on the net! Truly healthy with applesauce, maple syrup and whole wheat or spelt flour.

Banana Oat Bars

These bars make a perfect snack on the go and are made without any kind of sugar, even maple syrup or honey, but rather are packed with nuts, dates and flaxseed. One reader made them into a baby approved recipe by using Cheerios instead of nuts and raisins in place of dates. Her twins went crazy for the bars!

Whole Wheat Strawberry Banana Protein Muffins

Rebecca says: “Just made these and they are FANTASTIC. Had 1.5 bananas on hand so added a bit more yogurt and did a mix of strawberries and blueberries. I was pleasantly surprised at how sweet these muffins still are without any sugar – still sweet enough to be a treat. I cut up some cheese to eat alongside to balance them out. Can’t wait to make these again and try more recipes, thanks for sharing!”

These muffins came out fantastic! They are moist, light, and fluffy. I followed the recipe as is but added dry cranberries to the mix. Thank you for always posting easy, delicious, ideas here for us.”
