Banana Raisin Bread
Diet Info: DF GF F LF Na LS VG V Fa
This Banana Bread is super moist and addictive. If you are looking for - How to make a Really Moist Banana Bread? - I guarantee your search will end here. Not only moist, this bread is supper healthy because it has no refined sugar, butter or eggs and is full of antioxidants found in bananas and honey.

This scrumptious bread does not last more than 24 hours at my house. If I am able to hide few slices for more than a day, I usually wrap individual slices in plastic wrap or parchment for a lunch on-the-go or breakfast.

  • 1/4 Cup Raisins (Golden or California Rasinis)
  • 1/3 Cup Canola Oil

  • 1. Preheat oven to 325. Prepare a loaf pan with butter and flour and set aside. In a bowl, using hand mixer or a whisk, beat oil and honey together.
    Additional Notes
    Do not worry if honey sets at the bottom of oil. Just whisk once again before mixing with other ingredients.

    4. Bake for about 50-60 minutes. Check at 50 minutes, then if needed, bake 5-10 more minutes until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Serve warm with hot milk or wrap individual slices in cling wrap for Bake Sale.
    Additional Notes
    Cooking time may vary with use of dark or light container or size of banana. It took me about 1 hr 5 minutes to bake it.
Savita's Notes:
Homemade Banana Bread won't keep well at room temperature for more than 2-3 days because it is has no preservatives. So, to store longer, pack in air tight container and then refrigerate. Ingredients in this bread make it vegan, only I recommend use of Cocoa Butter / Oil Spray for preparing the loaf pan (instead of regular butter).
