I'm so excited to share this recipe with you. It's one of my favorite simple bake recipes. The day has come when I am finally going to share my famous banana bread recipe.

Because there is no banana bread recipe like this out there. I call it my Caribbean banana bread.

ingredients for the best banana bread recipe out there with a Caribbean twist

  • Bananas. We need ripe bananas. Bananas are a rich source of carbs. They are high in starch and sugar. Green bananas contain about 80% starch; as they ripen, the starch turns into sugar. When bananas are fully ripped, they contain only 1% starch because everything turns into sugar.
  • Wheat flour. Most of the time, I use white wheat flour, but sometimes I use all-purpose flour.
  • Eggs. I buy only organic eggs, and I don't make any exceptions. You can truly smell and taste the difference. The quality of good eggs is out of this world.
  • Baking powder.
  • Cinnamon. Cinnamon is one of my favorite spices. This super talent has been shown to improve diabetes type 2 symptoms. It improves insulin sensitivity and cholesterol levels. Cinnamon has this awesome skill of mimicking the effects of insulin, so it allows the body to reduce glucose from the bloodstream.
  • Brown sugar. I love that we can use brown sugar, coconut sugar or if we want super healthy maple syrup. The bread will still taste delicious; you don't have to stick to an ingredient. It can be easily replaced.
  • Coconut cream.
  • Vanilla extract. As a Dominican, I need to love vanilla. We use it in so many of our sweet dishes. The vanilla extract has to be 100% pure. Vanilla extract is rich in vanillin (a phenolic plant compound). This phenolic plant compound is rich in antioxidant properties, is anti-inflammatory, and may protect against neurodegenerative diseases.
  • Sparkling water.
  • Coconut oil. Coconut oil is perfect for this banana bread recipe. There is no butter in this baking recipe. We won't need as much as we would if we used butter.

If you want the bread to last longer, store it in the fridge. It will still taste delicious for about five days. If you leave it outside the fridge, it will last for about two days.
This banana bread is perfect for a meal prep snack. You can have it in different ways every day: plain, with peanut butter and raspberries, or with yogurt and a fruit salad, to name a few. There is no limit to how you should eat.
