We love banana bread at our house and have been on a quest to make it a bit more healthy for our family. This new Healthy Banana Bread Recipe uses maple syrup, avocado oil and greek yogurt.

Banana bread is a classic for a reason. You can’t go wrong with banana bread for snacking, especially for kids. Our girls love it in their lunches, for breakfast, or for after school snacks.
