Delicious Healthy refined sugar free oil free butter free banana bread

A Delicious Healthier refined sugar free oil free butter free banana bread! This banana bread uses 4 bananas and its healthier.

But I have to admit that I end up having more slices and wonder was it healthy to have these many slices 🙂  Anyway life is too short for me to keep wondering and pondering a lot on whether what I ate was healthy or not! (My thoughts and musings which I think is worth spending time,  if interested you can read at https://collectingrecipes.com/life and https://collectingrecipes.com/my-diary ) If I think I ate a lot of sweet treats for the day, I just walk more and sacrifice on my snickers bar after dinner 🙁 But I do munch on a few chunks of dark chocolate to make up for it 🙂

Regarding the recipe, you can make this banana bread to use up the extra bananas left. We have some ripened bananas left and I make a banana bread or cupcake to use them up.

To make this banana bread healthier, I’ve replaced butter/oil with double/heavy cream. And instead of sugar used healthier Jaggery. Jaggery is a dark, coarse, unrefined sugar made from the sap of a variety of palm tree or from the sugar cane juice. It has a sweet, rich and fudgey caramel flavour .

The jaggery flavour complements the banana and makes it so delicious and you would just be like me – Can’t eat just one slice and reach out for the next one. Add chocolate chips if you like. Enjoy!
