This delicious, healthy spin on banana bread is one of our favorite recipes from last year. It's exactly what banana bread should be; moist, sweet and full of flavor. Enjoy this recipe with friends, family, or just for you. It works perfect during the 7-Day cleanse or after you finish Cleanse.

Combine wet ingredients (bananas, eggs, coconut oil, coconut nectar) in a large mixing bowl until soft (use fork or potato masher), it's okay for small chunks of banana to be left in the batter, doesn't have to be perfectly smooth.

Pour dough into pan(s) and bake until a toothpick comes out clean (roughly 40-50 minutes depending on loaf size, smaller ones will cook faster, and one large one will take longer), keep checking and remove when the top is golden brown.
