Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup oil (I used avocado oil)
  • 2-3 tbsp maple syrup, honey or agave syrup (I prefer my banana bread to be less sweet but you can change the amount of sweetener based on your own preference!) 
  • 2 large free-run eggs
  • 2 ripe bananas (more ripe means sweeter!)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ tea spoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 ¼ cup whole wheat flour (or flour of your choice)
