Lately I’ve been trying to make a conscious effort of clean(er) eating throughout the day. I can get down on some carbs and chips (my vices!), but eating them on a regular basis just leaves me feeling groggy and soggy, not a great combo. Clean eating, for me, gives me that natural boost of energy throughout the day both mentally and physically…and with the lack of Vitamin D the state of WA has to offer, I’ll take all the extra boosts I can get! 😉
Thankfully, my other half is open to trying new creations I’ve whipped up! So for our upcoming trip up to Vancouver for a fun ski trip at Whistler and visit with family, I thought I’d take with us a yummy batch of Banana Bread…clean eating style! My mom has made banana bread for as long as I can remember and the tastiest too! But keeping to my clean eating concept, I found a new recipe here I thought I’d try. Thanks 8 Weeks to a Better You Recipes for the inspiration because it was all I could have hoped it would be!
Oh.my.gosh! Look at that! No butter, no sugar, and still deee-lish!
Being the thoughtful chef and cousin that I am, I only felt that it was right to taste-test my new recipe before allowing others to be the Guinea pigs. And butter my biscuit was it good! Seriously. I even took the liberty of adding some crushed pecans to mine for a little added crunch to each bite. I will definitely be making this again for our household! It’s even a great recipe to give as a gift during the holidays, take to a new neighbor, or get-well-soon gesture.
Try it for yourself and let me know what ya think!
To clean eating and a healthier tomorrow…
Lemons to Love,
