Banana Crumble Bread

For my first recipe to share, I chose this amazing banana bread! Who doesn’t love banana bread? It’s a perfect option for breakfast or a mid-day snack. This recipe is just sweet enough and the flavor of the banana really comes out, especially when you use over-ripe bananas. I included a sweet and nutty crumble, but that part is optional (I highly recommend including it!).

I’m sort of picky about my banana bread because I hate it when it comes out so super sweet. I really love it for breakfast, but I still want to feel like I’m having something healthy! I think this recipe gives the perfect combination, with whole grain flours, nourishing coconut oil and not too much sweetener. I haven’t tried making this recipe vegan, but I bet it could easily be done by just substituting in a flax or chia egg. Enjoy and let me know how you like it in the comments!
