Banana Tea Party Bread

With my two girls being close in age, we have a lot of girls and friends over to our house.  One of their favorite activities is to have a tea party – and sometimes boys included!  They love when I make fancy food for them to have at their tea parties, but lets be honest – who has time to do that all of the time??  This Banana Tea Party Bread is a yummy, healthy low-sugar recipe that is perfect for tea parties, or just to have as a snack.  We even love this banana bread for breakfast the next day.  Banana Tea Party Bread.

 We love banana bread because it is delicious, but we also love all of the health benefits of the bananas that are in it.

Healthy benefits of bananas:

  • Good source of potassium!  They can literally lower blood pressure (high blood pressure is becoming more common in CHILDREN today!
  • Do your kids get heart burn?  Bananas are a natural antacid!
  • High in B vitamins (improves nerve function)
  • Good source of fiber.  So many kids have bowel trouble, fiber is a great way to relieve that.

Keri says:

I have a child that cannot have milk. If I didn’t want to use soy yogurt, what else would you suggest using in place of that?

Amy says:

Growing up, we never drank milk, and in every baked good, we substituted water, and it actually worked out great! We never noticed any difference~

Good luck!

Filis says:

Very delicious recipe. However, I am wondering if cooking fruits still preserves their nutritious values??

Amy says:

Filis- while some nutrients are lost, there are still a lot of vitamins and minerals still intact.

Crystal Brashear says:

Made this today…ohmiword…Yum! Made a few modifications…added about 3 tablespoons of shredded carrots and a few white chocolate chips on top (I know..I know…but I Wanted a dessert feel tonight..lol)

Julie says:

This sounded wonderful. I made it for breakfast. Smells great. Tastes like lightly banana flavored cardboard. I doubled the recipe, checked to make sure all ingredients were correct.

Holley says:

Something is wrong with the amounts in this recipe. It is way too dry. Just made it and was disappointed to have to throw it all away
