And better yet, this time we’re sneaking in some SPINACH! Boo-yah! I kind of feel like a super hero, kicking sugar’s butt with all of these healthier (but delicious) recipes we’ve been sharing. Actually, I think this is the start of something good. I want to incorporate more healthier dessert/snack-y recipes going forward.

But I am waiting for the day I decide to make a healthier layered cake with no sugar, but I’ll have to think about how to make buttercream without powdered sugar :)

This green monster bread recipe is a healthy quick bread with no sugar, oil, or butter. Plus it has a sneaky green ingredient! This is a perfect quick bread recipe! It’s sweetened with bananas and honey, it has a little bit of peanut butter, cinnamon, and greek yogurt – and there’s the famous green ingredient, spinach! It DOES NOT taste like spinach but tastes quite similar to banana bread, but with a lighter sweetness.

This green monster bread recipe is a healthy quick bread with no sugar, oil, or butter. Plus it has a sneaky green ingredient! I will tell you, this is the perfect bread to eat in public, say at the mall, if you want to get really weird stares. While everyone else at the mall is eating pretzels and drinking 800 calorie coffee drinks, I was eating slices of this bread out of a tupperware container. If I only had samples to give to everyone, I think their minds would have changed. I think I’m used to eating weird things in public, like that one time I found cooked bacon in my purse.. where’s the tomato, lettuce and bread to make a BLT?!

You could turn this green monster bread into muffins – just bake the batter in a muffin pan at 350º F for 18-24 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

  1. I will be making this and crediting it to your blog on my instapage  (Instacleanfoods). I don’t see your instagram anywhere. Thanks for this!!!!

  2. I make this as mini muffins and my little man loves them!! Today I even added chopped raspberries and made them as pancakes…turned out great!!

    1. How long did you have to bake them for? I want to do this for my girls the next time I make this.

  3. I used about half a package of thawed and drained chopped spinach since I didn’t have any fresh on hand, and added some fresh blueberries. It turned out wonderful. The rest of the spinach went into a quiche so we had a yummy spinach and protein packed breakfast!
