Spiced Banana Bread recipe with Stefanie London

This is a household favourite in the cooler months. While baking, it fills the apartment with a wonderful scent. I serve warm with a little butter and a cup of coffee. It’s the ultimate treat to warm you up!

I love this recipe for a few reasons. One, it’s the perfect way to use up bananas that have gone a little too ripe to eat as is. I peel my bananas when they get to this point, pop them into a freezer bag and leave them in my freezer until I want to make a smoothie or banana bread. Give them a few minutes to thaw and you’ll find they’re super easy to mash.

The other reason I love this recipe is because it’s pretty healthy as far as Christmas treats go. It’s sweetened naturally with maple syrup (or you could use honey) and the bananas. I use whole wheat flour to give it more fibre and the spices add great flavour without the use of artificial flavours.

You will need…

  • A loaf pan greased with some spray oil or coconut oil
  • Wooden spoon
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Mixing bowl


⅓ cup coconut oil

½ cup maple syrup

2 eggs

2 large bananas (mashed)

¼ cup milk

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon spices of your choice (I use a mixture of cinnamon and nutmeg, or you could try pumpkin pie spice etc.)

1 ¾ cups whole wheat flour

½ cup chopped walnuts
