Recipe: Kiana Kona Island Banana Bread

Best Banana Bread Ever

Simple to Make Using Ripe Bananas

Enjoy for breakfast topped with Greek Yogurt or in the afternoon with a cup of Coconut Coffee

This is one of my all time favorite recipes! This fool proof recipe has been in my family for decades. I modified it so it's  healthier! Coconut oil instead of butter, stevia (a natural plant extract) instead of white sugar, added steel cut oats for more texture and nutrition, added toasted almonds for more protein and an extra banana for even more potassium.

This is a simple and delicious way to use up over ripe bananas. So before you toss out those too ripe bananas, make this yummy bread. It's so delicious and easy to reheat in the toaster oven.

This is the best banana bread I've ever tasted. It's slightly crunchy and sweet on the crust and super moist on the inside.  Delicious comfort food and no guilt. Your Ohana (family) will love it.

Nutrition Facts: Bananas

Bananas are an excellent source of potassium, very low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C, Potassium and Manganese, and a very good source of Vitamin B6. The downside is that most of the calories are from sugar (natural sugar btw.) To me, that makes it a good pre-workout snack to give me lots of energy to max out my workouts.

Stock up on Bananas!

I usually buy at least a dozen bananas every time I go to the grocery store.  Those are a few of the reasons I stock up.

  1. I peel and cut them in half and keep in the freezer to add to smoothies and protein shakes
  2. Nature's pre-wrapped snack: put them in the kids' lunch boxes, my gym bag, have them pre-workout.

But sometimes I have too many and they aren't eaten as fast as I thought they would be and they get over ripe.
