The amount of sugar in children's diets is a conversation we've tried to highlight for many years now so we're delighted to see the subject in the media at the . At Saucepan Kids, we believe in 'everything in moderation'. We love baking and eating cake but we make sure that it's not everyday. We also try to minimise the amount of sugar we add to food where possible.
The last time we were shopping in a supermarket, bananas were on special so we bought a batch and of course then we needed to find something to do with them! Here's our fool proof banana bread recipe that doesn't have any added sugar in it. The sweetness comes from the dried fruit, the ripe bananas and a teeny tiny squeeze of honey.

There's a job for every age child with this recipe. Kids can help with weighing out of the ingredients. The younger kids will really love beating the egg and also mashing the bananas.
You can add a handful of either chopped walnuts, sultanas, pecan nuts, chopped dates or chocolate chips.
You can make banana bread muffins out of this mixture, just cut the cooking time in half. This banana bread keeps for a few days in an air tight container and it also freezes really well. In fact, if you slice it before you freeze it, you can defrost individual slices or toast them.
