When COVID first hit, the nation unanimously started baking banana bread. I was no exception. But, I wanted to create a version that I could feel better about (since I was eating a LOT of it), so this healthier banana bread was born. Using no milk, oil, or refined sugar, this is a great option if you’re looking for a lighter take on a classic.
