If you’re after a super healthy banana bread recipe, look no further!

Thanks to Richard Kerrigan, you can now whip up Healthy Banana Bread any time you like.

What do we love about Richard’s Healthy Banana Bread?

  1. With a healthy banana bread recipe like this, you can keep an eye on your calorie intake. These mini banana breads contain between 350-450 calories.
  2. They’re quick and easy to whip up and if you’re using mini loaf pans, they’ll cook super fast too.
  3. This healthy banana bread recipe is one the kids can get involved with!
  4. The mini loaves are so cute – serve them on a small bread board with a tiny pot of butter
  5. This recipe freezes really well.  In fact we recommend freezing all but one or two immediately – otherwise you might end up eating them all in one sitting eeek!

Who is Richard Kerrigan?

Well apart from being the incredibly talented chef behind this healthy banana bread recipe, Richard Kerrigan is also a Personal Trainer …

“I left school when I was sixteen to study Catering & Hospitality at Thanet College. During this time I was lucky enough to be selected to go and work at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle at some of the most exclusive events in the world, including Charles and Camilla’s wedding.  

I found my passion for fitness along the way after the long hours and often unhealthy lifestyle in the kitchen. This led me to change my career path and took me to Edinburgh where I gained my Personal Training qualification.
 
I have been in the fitness industry for 8 years now and continued to develop my skills.  Over that time I have helped a lot of people achieve their goals by eating better and following a structured exercise plan. My ultimate goal is to inspire people to change their lives by simplifying their approach to exercise and nutrition.
 
With my experience as a chef I am able to create simple, delicious dishes to suit the busy lifestyles we all lead today. I want to show that you can enjoy a healthy lifestyle that is sustainable, without feeling like you are missing out or on a diet.
 
I am now living my dream of combining the skills I’ve learnt along the way to change peoples lives forever.”

Ingredients (serves 6 | makes 6 6 mini loaves)

  • 4-5 medium sized very ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup rice bran syrup
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 2 cups plain white flour
  • 3 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2-3 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 90g of 70% dark chocolate
  • 1/4 cup walnuts chopped
  • 1/4 cup macadamias chopped

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 170°C.
  2. Peel the bananas and mash together with a fork in a large bowl. Add the rice bran syrup and coconut oil and mix together well. Sift the flour, cinnamon powder and baking soda over the top and beat well with a wooden spoon.
  3. Decide which filling you’d like to add to your banana breads - blueberries, dark chocolate or nuts and add these to the mix. Leave a few filling ingredients to one side to decorate your mini banana breads before you bake these in the oven.
  4. Divide the mixture evenly into a 6 space mini loaf tray – silicone (10cm x 5cm), ensuring you wipe any excess mixture from around the edge. Depending on which filling ingredient you decided upon add a few extras of these to the top of the breads for decoration.
  5. Place the silicon mould onto an oven tray and bake in the oven on the middle shelf for 55-60 minutes. Before removing, stick a metal skewer into the middle of the banana bread ensuring it comes out clean. Then leave to cool down on a cooling rack for 20 minutes and slice.

  • We love healthier recipes. I would replace the rice bran syrup with yacon syrup/coconut palm syrup and the plain white flour with wholemeal spelt flour or lentil/chickpea flour
