Alright, I haven’t shared a recipe on here in SO long! Currently eating sweet potato soufflé while writing about it on a Sunday afternoon, life is good. This one is sure to please, I promise. (Inspired by Alan Jackson’s recipe.). This is the only dish that I care about my mom making year after year to put on the table at Thanksgiving. Is it a side? Is it a dessert? I’ll leave that up to you. I eat it as both, and it is so delicious! 😆
Here’s what you’ll need:
3 Large Sweet Potatoes
1/2 tsp of Salt
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 stick of butter
1 tsp of vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/3 stick of butter
1/4 cup of light brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans (I like to leave these whole, and the more the merrier)
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
Wash sweet potatoes and wrap with tin foil. Bake for 1.5 hrs. (You can also cook in crockpot on high for 4 hrs.)
Let potatoes cool down for 10 minutes or so. Peel potatoes and mash together with 1 stick of butter.
Add in the rest of the ingredients, mix well until combined.
Pour into a greased casserole dish (Momma uses more butter for this).
Bake for 30 min
Take dish out and add the topping. Spread the butter over the top and let it melt into the dish. Sprinkle brown sugar and pecans.
Bake for an additional 10-15 min
ENJOY!! 😊 Thanks for reading. ♥️

I will get straight to the point on this one so that y’all don’t have to scroll forever to get to the recipe! 😉 Bottom line is this is the yummiest banana bread I have ever tasted, and it’s not bad for you (yay!). I have made this recipe based off of another recipe I found on pinterest, and this is my perfected version! I hope that you all enjoy! (Blue and white plate linked here. + similar cutting board here.)
What you will need:
1/3 c melted coconut oil
1/2 c pure maple syrup or honey (I use both–1/4 c syrup, 1/4 c honey)
3 medium ripe bananas (mashed)
1/4 c of milk
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus additional for swirl on top
1 3/4 c whole wheat flour
9×5 in loaf pan –Link to my loaf pan here (the best!)
peanut butter chips (I love this addition, I add about 1/4 c. Can be found in baking aisle), or dark chocolate chips
chopped pecans, walnuts, or slivered almonds on top!
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees, spray your loaf pan with non-stick spray (I use coconut oil spray.)
Melt your coconut oil in the microwave in 20 second increments until liquified, whisk honey/syrup with the oil thoroughly. Add eggs and beat until combined.
Next, add mashed bananas and milk, mix.
Mix in baking soda, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon.
Lastly, with a large spoon, stir in the flour. Also, if you are adding chocolate chips or nuts, mix those now as well.
Pour batter into your loaf pan, and sprinkle some more cinnamon on top. To add a swirl effect, run a fork across the top in a swirled pattern.
Bake for 55-60 min. (I like mine to be not as done, so I take it out at 55.)
**Note that this bread is very moist, so after a few days of sitting at room temperature, I recommend you put it in the fridge. If you’re like me, and the whole loaf is gone after a few days, this shouldn’t be an issue. 😋
Be sure to tag me if you decide to make it–I wanna see! 🍌🍞🍯
Hello friends! I hope that everyone had a wonderful Super-Bowl weekend filled with all of your favorite yummy foods– I know we did for sure. That’s why I was so glad to get my butt to the grocery store today to buy all the healthy foods I could find. The recipe I’m sharing with you is one that will cure your sweet tooth, and you don’t have to be guilty about it! I have tried sooo many “healthy” cookie recipes, and this by far is the best I have tasted. My friends have made theses cookies and love them too!
The recipe came from Emily Didonato, and I’ll link her video here. She is such an adorable person to follow, so if you’ve never checked out her youtube channel, I recommend that you do!
Anyways, here is the wonderful recipe 🙂
1 cup all natural creamy almond butter
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt ( this is super important IMO, do not skip!)
1 bar of dark chocolate chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all together in a mixing bowl. No need to refrigerate, I scooped the batter right onto the cookie sheet (My cookies were larger, and it made about 10). Cook for 10 minutes! Enjoy!
I hope that y’all enjoy this recipe. Let me know if you are interested in other healthy recipes that I use every day, and also if you try this one! I’d love to hear from you. Cheers y’all. 🙂
