Healthy Pancake Blueberry Banana Bread made easy with a complete pancake mix! No butter, oil or refined sugar. Also gluten-free and vegan options!
I think we can all agree that banana bread is probably one of the best kinds of foods invented.
I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like banana bread, actually. Even those people who HATE bananas love banana bread because it’s basically heaven in bread form. I mean how could you not love that crackly nut crusted top with a fluffy sweet banana-y flavored pillow inside? I’m pretty sure that you and I would agree that we would be able to eat banana bread everyday if we could, no? I totally would too but that’s probably not the greatest idea in the world for my health!
So my goal was to create a banana bread recipe that was super easy-to-make, healthy enough to eat every day, and of course just as delicious as a regular sugar-filled banana bread. Challenge accepted and defeated!
This banana bread came out even better than I imagined and I couldn’t be happier (and couldn’t stop eating it lol). You would never guess the secret ingredient that’s in this banana bread if I didn’t tell you….. PANCAKE MIX! Yes it’s made so simple and easy with pancake mix. I used Kodiak Cakes complete protein pancake mix which has to be my favorite of all time but there are many other healthy gluten-free complete pancake mixes, just choose your favorite mix.
Now banana bread typically contains a lot of added sugar but this version only has 1/4 cup of coconut sugar in the bread and 2 tbsp for the topping which is cutting back a lot. But do not be fooled by the less sugar, the bananas are the main source of sweetness accompanied by the juicy blueberries. There is no need for more sugar!
