Healthy Red Velvet Banana Bread Recipe

Healthy Red Velvet Banana Bread Recipe. Delicious, gluten free, vegan and has a secret ingredient!

I love red velvet cake, it’s so yummy and a real treat. Red Velvet Banana bread may sound a little strange. But adding banana’s to red velvet cake makes it soft, moist and perfectly sweet.

This red velvet banana bread is completely healthy and homemade! No baking mix or box required. I used buckwheat flour as my flour of choice to make this banana bread gluten free, I used chia eggs to make it vegan.

The secret ingredient to get that red velvet colour is beets! I promise you won’t taste it once it’s mixed with the other ingredients. It’s super simple and easy to make. It tastes great on it’s own but you can add your favourite frosting. I used whipped coconut and it was such a delicious combination!
