This recipe for lactation banana bread, or banana bars if you prefer smaller bars for eating and packing is full of milk-boosting herbs and nutrients from Milk Dust, as well as being low-sugar, low-carb and still soft and comforting.
Because the bananas are ripe and sweet, and Milk Dust is sweet as well, you don't need any extra granulated sugar or sweetener. Instead, we used the Truvia Honey blend that reduces the sugar content, but still tastes just like honey. We also swapped almond flour for regular flour, which dramatically reduces the blood sugar impact and carbs in the banana bread.
Standard banana bread is really good on occasion, but for a breastfeeding mama looking to stay healthy, lose some of the baby weight and keep up milk supply, this recipe is a much better option! You can eat this for breakfast, or as a snack with not guilt or sugar crashes.
Let's get into the recipe, so you can enjoy this banana bread.
