I’ve been making this whole wheat banana bread recipe for years and it comes out perfect, moist, and delicious every single time!

The recipe is easy to follow, and only a few ingredients. My husband made it for us again yesterday so I took the chance to re shoot some pictures.

This is one of my favorite bread recipes! We usually eat the whole loaf in a day or two.

It is naturally sweetened (no artificial sweeteners here), easy to make, and the perfect healthy breakfast or snack.

So many recipes I see call for sugar..and more sugar…and oil, butter etc.

These ingredients are totally unnecessary for awesome banana bread.

I love using whole wheat flour when baking banana bread. It’s not only more wholesome, but has such a rich hearty flavor.

Bananas themselves are naturally sweet, and make the bread moist and sweet without the use of excessive oil and sweeteners.

My husband and I love this recipe cold from the fridge or warmed up with a bit of butter melted on top.

It’s also toddler approved! Crosby loves it.
