Healthy Banana Bread Recipe

IIFYM healthy banana bread

 

Today, I have something good for you. I know it’s the dead of summer and everyone is out grilling and soaking up the rays, but please bear with me.  You see, I have this problem.

My problem is that…. I buy bananas.

Ok, ok, so THAT’S not the problem! The real problem is that I buy bananas and then I don’t use them. Without a doubt, just about every week goes by and I end up with some overly ripe naners that need some serious help. I HATE throwing things out, so I needed a healthy way to cure my problem use them up! Even though the days are hot, there’s always time for some good banana bread. This banana bread I have for you today is delicious, healthy, and won’t hurt that summer beach bod. This banana bread is different from the rest because there is no wheat, gluten, dairy, or sugar added! So the next time you find yourself neglecting those naners sitting on your counter try this bread out!
