This Homemade Banana Bread is Free of Refined Sugar and Grains

Homemade banana breads are a great sweet treat to enjoy, but the recipe often calls for a ton of sugar and usually contains gluten. This all-natural take on the popular baked loaf contains no flour or any refined sugar making it a healthy snack to enjoy when you're craving the original.

This healthy banana bread recipe by blogger Chocolate Covered Katie cleverly uses ingredient substitution to replace the sugar and gluten with wholesome products such as mashed bananas, rolled oats, agave and oil. These ingredients work to bind the bread together and sweeten it in a much more wholesome way.

As consumers seek out more all-natural versions of their favorite desserts, gluten-free and sugar-free options are becoming more readily available with recipes that offer the same great flavor with healthy ingredient substitutions.
