5-Ingredient Blender Banana Bread {Gluten-free, Refined-sugar free, Oil-free}

IMG_8866The $h!t is bananas. Actually, its THIS banana bread, to be exact!  For anyone who is intimidated by either: healthy baking, or making banana bread at all, this is the perfect recipe for you to try! It is only 5 simple ingredients you probably have on hand, plus you can customize it with any mix-ins of your choice. You can also make the entire loaf in a blender – so you don’t need to worry about mixing, or owning a fancy Kitchenaid mixer.
