A couple of times a month I bake up mini bread loaves for some of my older friends. They may be widowed, divorced, or living the single life but all these women love baked goods. This week I baked up some cute little Banana breads. This easy recipe is my go to banana bread recipe. Whenever I have a bunch of bananas I didn’t get a chance to eat, I know where they are headed, straight to a bread mixing bowl! This banana bread recipe is special because I used some products from Navitas Naturals. They have a large array of organic superfoods that are great to add in and/or replace other ingredients in almost every recipe you may cook up. The great people over at Navitas Naturals sent me some of their products and I absolutely loved them. For this recipe I used the Coconut Palm Sugar in replace of white granulated sugar. I also topped the bread with Superfood+ Maca Cashews.

Delicious Rating: The Coconut Palm Sugar is absolutely amazing. It is a great replacement for cane sugar and brings another layer of flavor to whatever it is your cooking. In this case, the banana bread was not overly sweet but had a caramel overtone, almost like molasses. It is low-glycemic, so a perfect choice for those needing  to eat from a low-glycemic index. I topped the breads with chopped Maca Cashews. The cashews have a touch of maple syrup on them that give them a slight sweetness. It is the perfect combination! The bread is soft and moist, full of flavor. The cashews add texture and a creaminess that is a great complement to the bananas.

Overly ripe bananas are perfect for banana bread.

Here is the Coconut Palm Sugar. If you choose to use another sweetener, now would be the time to mix it in.

The batter should be mixed together well. If you like a chunky  banana bread, add in some bananas at this step and don’t mix the batter thoroughly, leaving some banana chunks. 

I filled 6 mini bread trays. But this is good for one large bread pan or muffins. Delicious!
