Healthy apple banana loaf with no added sugar


We’re always trying to make our healthy recipes even easier and with fewer ingredients. 

We ain’t got time to fluff around to find/buy a bazillion ingredients just to make a healthy loaf.

This healthy apple banana loaf (with no added sugar) has just 6 ingredients. You don’t need any sweetener because the fruit is full of natural yummy sweetness but if you have a sweet tooth, feel free to add a tablespoon or so of your fave natural sweetener (think honey, maple, coconut sugar etc).

You only need 2 bowls, a baking tin and BOOM you’ll have a loaf within 40 minutes. 

The best thing about this healthy apple banana loaf is that you can make it at the start of the week and have the ultimate afternoon snack on hand. 

Rather than spending anywhere between $5-$10 for one slice of cake/loaf/muffin, you can have an entire loaf for about the price of 1. 

We like to make our healthy treats and then (either) slice and freeze for later deliciousness or share with lucky friends. 

ALSO, sharing food is the perfect friend maker. If you’ve recently moved to a new city or town, make this loaf, slice it up and share it with your neighbours or colleagues. 

We enjoyed ours on a rainy day, post-Yin Yoga… safe to say it was absolute BLISS.

If you make it, take a photo and share it with us on the Socials so we don’t miss it!

This recipe is also now on the Get Merry Recipe App (which has over 500 recipes to make you drool and also make your meal times super Merry!). 

Always merrymaking,
