This Honey Wheat Banana Bread is a great example of how changing a few ingredients in a favorite recipe can increase the nutritional value. I switched the regular flour to whole wheat and added some ground flax seed for additional fiber. It’s still a treat, but it’s better for you. With a base recipe like this, you can add chopped walnuts or mini chocolate chips, whatever your family enjoys.
My kids love a small piece of Honey Wheat Banana Bread with a hard-boiled egg for breakfast, or with a cold glass of milk as an afterschool snack. Need more ideas? See this great list of 25 Healthy Afterschool Snacks contributed by readers on the MoneywiseMoms Facebook Page.
