My favorite Skinny banana bread The recipe is oil-free, low in sugar, and just over 100 calories / slice! It's the BEST recipe for healthy banana bread to produce incredibly moist, perfectly sweet and delicious bread!

We are preparing for an intense ice storm in Saint Louis this weekend. Schools are closed today and my husband is working from home.

I had never experienced an ice storm until I moved to the Midwest, and no kidding! We have had some in the past few years that kept everyone at home, like today. You are driving in your car and the "rain" that falls on your windshield immediately freezes. The streets become a sheet of ice, but it is very difficult to say that it is there, which makes it dangerous to drive.

However, it is fun to have an excuse to take refuge at home with my family. We play games and do puzzles and pick a fun movie to watch.

Do you want to know how to make banana bread? You are in the right place. I like to bake something warm and comforting like this Skinny Banana Bread. My children love it and I love that it is healthier than regular banana bread. Plus, it makes my house smell amazing.

Several slices of Skinny Banana Bread stacked against the bread.

The main reason I really love this slim banana bread recipe (plus the obvious fact that it has less sugar and fat than any traditional banana bread recipe) is because it has FOUR large mashed bananas.

Most recipes have 2 or 3, max. I love the extra banana flavor it gives the bread, and it makes the bread really moist.

I like to use very ripe bananas. Like, so mature that the skin is black, and my husband is begging me to remove them from our kitchen counter :-). The more ripe the banana, the sweeter it is, the easier it is to puree and the more sweet it adds to the bread.

Can you make banana bread with fresh bananas?

Yes! If you only have fresh bananas, don't worry! One trick is to place them (peel them) on a baking sheet and bake them in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 6-8 minutes. This is a great trick to quickly ripen bananas!

By writing the ingredients below on a nutrition calculator (judging that one loaf of bread makes about 12 slices), this banana bread turned out to have about 140 calories per slice.

So I hope you feel great delighting yourself with one of the tastiest and easiest quick breads!
