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% of starch, as they are ripening the starch turns into sugar. When bananas are fully ripped they contain only 1% starch, because everything turned into sugar (Read More)
  • Wheat flour.

    Most of the time I use white wheat flour, but sometimes I use all purpose flour, as well.
  • Eggs.

    The eggs that I buy must be organic 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.

    One of my favorite spices. This super talent has been shown to improve diabetes type 2 symptoms. It improves the insulin sensitivity and cholesterol level. Cinnamon has this awesome skill to mimic 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 and 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. (Read More)
  • Sparkling water.

  • Coconut oil.

    No butter in this baking recipe. Coconut oil is perfect for this banana bread recipe. We won’t need as much as we would, if we would use butter.
