Banana Bread for a Tea Party


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.

This banana bread is simple to make and much like any other quick bread.  Combine dry ingredients in one bowl, combine wet in another, and then mix them together.

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

What are the benefits of bananas?

Bananas are a big part of many kids diet.  They are soft enough to serve at a young age. The flavor is mild enough that most kids like the flavor. And they are versatile enough that you can eat them in so many different ways.  We like to use bananas for bread, but we also like to eat them frozen with chocolate, just frozen banana pops,  in smoothies or a breakfast with toppings like this banana split!

  • 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.

Okay, this has nothing to do with this post, but Erika looks super TAN in that picture! I can tell they’ve been outside lots this summer! 🙂

I can’t wait to try this recipe. I just love your blog. What a great idea. Healthy eating is so critically important these days for all of us. I will be adding your Super Healthy Kids gadget/link to my page!

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?

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!

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

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)

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.

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
