This Dairy Free Banana Bread with Ginger and Pear is packed full of goodness and flavour. Enjoy for breakfast/brunch or healthy snack anytime!
Holiday over and we came back to an empty fridge. Well, almost, as I did find a good size chunk of reasonably fresh ginger. There were also 2 very ripe bananas and 1 pear in the fruit bowl. After a little rummage in the kitchen cupboards I realised I had enough ingredients to make this healthy Dairy Free Banana Bread with Ginger and Pear that’s perfect for breakfast or as a healthy snack.
Whole wheat banana bread recipe
This ginger banana bread recipe does not contain any refined sugar or white flour. Although I eat brown bread every day I must admit I was a little unsure about using wholemeal flour in this sweet bread recipe thinking it might make it heavy and stodgy. Thank goodness I decided to go for it anyway! This bread is light and fluffy, and I think the wholemeal flour adds flavour and depth plain flour never could.
Meal prep tips
This easy healthy banana bread doesn’t take very long to make but you can reduce preparation time even further by making the fruit mixture ahead. (Refrigerate it, covered, for up to several hours, until you are ready to make the recipe). Then all that’s left to do is combine it with the other ingredients and pop the whole thing in the oven.
