The Best Banana Bread

Being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes was a shock to all of us but especially my husband. It’s something he wasn’t prepared for at first. My mother suffered from the disease until she died from a stoke, so I knew the implications and road ahead. I suddenly found myself searching for recipes that are not only healthy but don’t taste like paste either! What a pleasant surprise to stumble upon this delicious recipe while reading

What a pleasant surprise to stumble upon this delicious recipe while reading The China Study Solution. I can honestly say this is the best banana bread I’ve made and the fact that it’s healthy and vegan is icing on the cake. Credit goes to Caldwell B. Esselstyn Jr., MD

As I learn and grow, I’m surprised by the knowledge available to help my husband with his disease and in the process support our entire family. As he regains his health and energy so do all of us, together.

It's easy to make this gluten-free by using a gluten-free flour instead of the wheat flour suggested. If you prefer this bread to be oil-free, use a silicone loaf pan otherwise lightly oil for best non-stick results. Adapted from China Study Book.
