If you are looking for a simple and healthy breakfast idea that you can make ahead the evening before, then try this Sugar-Free Coconut and Banana Bread. It is easy to make (you’ll only need one bowl, which means less washing-up), and it is delicious, naturally sweetened with ripe bananas and coconut flavours! I have been experimenting with banana bread recipes for some time now, tried to reduce the amount of added sugar and make a healthier version that tastes just as good, or even better than the 'traditional' one! You may have noticed from the recipes I've shared here that I am a huge coconut fan and I add it to recipes whenever I can! They didn't let me down once again. This Sugar-Free Coconut and Banana Bread is so moist and light that I just can't wait to make the next batch! 😊
