 We love banana bread because it is delicious, but we also love all of the health benefits of the bananas that are in it.

Healthy benefits of bananas:

  • Good source of potassium!  They can literally lower blood pressure (high blood pressure is becoming more common in CHILDREN today!
  • Do your kids get heart burn?  Bananas are a natural antacid!
  • High in B vitamins (improves nerve function)
  • Good source of fiber.  So many kids have bowel trouble, fiber is a great way to relieve that.

I have a child that cannot have milk. If I didn’t want to use soy yogurt, what else would you suggest using in place of that?

Growing up, we never drank milk, and in every baked good, we substituted water, and it actually worked out great! We never noticed any difference~

Good luck!

Very delicious recipe. However, I am wondering if cooking fruits still preserves their nutritious values??

Filis- while some nutrients are lost, there are still a lot of vitamins and minerals still intact.

This sounded wonderful. I made it for breakfast. Smells great. Tastes like lightly banana flavored cardboard. I doubled the recipe, checked to make sure all ingredients were correct.

Something is wrong with the amounts in this recipe. It is way too dry. Just made it and was disappointed to have to throw it all away
