Serving up great food is the fix for most things – and when you’re trying cutting something as every-present as sugar, ready access to sugarfree treats is a must. My go-to favourite of the moment is this Sugarfree Banana Bread – or more accurately these three variations on Sugarfree Banana Bread: plain, with walnut or with chocolate. All are fab – as tried and tested by my kids – and me!

Sugarfree Banana Bread - Three Ways
Fast recipe for three types of Sugarfree Banana Bread - plain, with walnut or chocolate. A nice way to use up left over ripe bananas - fresh or frozen.
Preheat the over to 140 C (fan) or 150 C (conventional). Line a 2lb loaf tin with greaseproof / baking parchment or a liner. Prepare your ingredients.
Sift the dry ingredients - the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon, into a large bowl and stir to mix.
Making a well in the centre of the mix, add the wet ingredients - the coconut oil, eggs and syrup / nectar if using. Stir to combine.
Add the bananas and raisins / sultanas - and the walnuts and / or cocoa. Mix to just combine being careful not to over-work the mixture.
Pour the mixture into the prepared bread tin. If making the walnut loaf and looking for a super pretty effect add a little line of walnuts along the top. Alternatively you can add a long slice slice / smaller slices of banana - like I did here - http://thebusymamas.ie/chocolate-and-banana-bread/.
Bake for 75 to 90 minutes or until a skewer into the middle comes out clean.
Remove and cool on a wire rack before turning out. Enjoy slathered with butter and a large cup of tea.
