It is that time of the year when we make our resolutions to pursue a better lifestyle in 2022. We know, eating healthy is not as easy during winter times, that’s why we came up with this perfect guilt-free bakery recipe to help you kick start your year!

With some ingredient swaps, this healthy banana bread gives you even better flavors and textures than the regular one. The use of coconut oil and coconut sugar creates an irresistible smell and a hint of coconut aftertaste that goes super well with the bananas in the bread. It has a crusty outside and a super moist yet dense inside that is hard to get in your everyday banana bread.

Follow Beverly and see how she adds a twist in this one - the walnuts! They are crunchy and help to add one more fun texture to your banana bread. Of course, you can substitute any nuts that you like, or leave them out as you wish. Whatever you pick, this banana bread for sure will fill your house with warmth and comfort.

New episodes of Lunch Break premieres every Sunday at 10 AM (PST). Subscribe to our YouTube channel here to stay up to date on new episodes.
