Recipe: Whole Wheat Banana Bread
“Laissez bon temp rouler!” “Let the good times roll!” 🎭
It’s Mardi Gras- the feast before the fast!
This holiday is focused around indulging, which is a great thing! But sometimes our indulgences can turn into daily cravings.
So what are your cravings telling you?
Rather than fight your cravings, let’s learn how to listen and understand what your body is really asking for…
Our bodies are always seeking balance: temperature, water, salt, hormone levels, sugar levels, energy levels- it’s all about balance.
When you are driven towards a certain food over and over, your body might be asking for something other than the chips 🍿, or cheese🧀, or wine🍷, or cookies🍪.
Wouldn’t it be nice to understand where the craving is coming from?
Whether it be physical or emotional, let’s dive deeper and raise our awareness!

Balance, heal, thrive,

Whole Wheat Banana Bread
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
- 3 overripe bananas, mashed
- 1/3 cup melted butter, slightly cooled
- 3/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 tbs coconut oil for the pan
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- Preheat oven to 375.
- In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and walnuts.
- In a separate mixing bowl, combine bananas, butter, maple syrup, vanilla, and eggs.
- Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients including chocolate chips. Stir until just combined.
- Lightly grease an 8×4 bread pan with coconut oil. (I like to use my fingers and then rub any excess into my hands and face) Pour batter into pan and top with walnuts. Bake until golden brown and a knife comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Let cool in the pan before removing.
