Whether enjoyed as a breakfast, snack, or dessert, Viasox's Sugar-Free Banana Bread is a diabetic-friendly recipe, offering a nutritious way to satisfy cravings without spiking blood sugar levels.

Ingredients:

  • Bananas: 3 ripe bananas, mashed – they provide natural sweetness
  • Flour: 1¾ cups whole wheat flour – for a healthier option
  • Eggs: 2 large eggs – for binding the ingredients
  • Oil: ⅓ cup olive oil or melted coconut oil – adds moisture
  • Yogurt: ¼ cup Greek yogurt – for added protein and texture
  • Vanilla Extract: 1 teaspoon – for flavor
  • Baking Soda: 1 teaspoon – helps the bread rise
  • Salt: ½ teaspoon – to balance the flavors
  • Cinnamon: 1 teaspoon – for a warm spice note
  • Nuts/Chocolate Chips (optional): ½ cup – for added texture and flavor (choose sugar-free chocolate chips)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat Oven: Set your oven to 325°F (165°C) and grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: Whisk together the whole wheat flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  3. Blend Wet Ingredients: In another bowl, mix the mashed bananas, eggs, oil, Greek yogurt, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  4. Combine Mixtures: Gently stir the banana mixture into the dry ingredients until combined. Avoid overmixing.
  5. Add Extras: Fold in nuts or sugar-free chocolate chips if desired.
  6. Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Cool: Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 10 minutes.
  8. Serve: Once cooled, slice the banana bread and enjoy.

Tips:

  • Banana Ripeness: The riper the bananas, the sweeter the bread.
  • Storage: Store in an airtight container for up to a week or freeze for a longer shelf life.
  • Cinnamon Benefits: Adding cinnamon enhances flavor and can also be beneficial for blood glucose control. Cinnamon has properties that may help manage blood sugar levels, making it a great addition to diabetic-friendly recipes.

This recipe focuses on the natural sweetness of bananas, making it an excellent choice for a healthier, diabetic-friendly treat. Enjoy your homemade sugar-free banana bread!
