I’m sure you’ve all heard of chai tea. I had my first chai tea experience a couple of years ago and fell in love. It’s no wonder since I love cinnamon, ginger, and cardamom. So when I found a recipe that incorporated these spices into a banana bread, I knew I had to try it.
Not only is this bread absolutely delicious, but it’s extremely moist. I love the flavours of the different spices mixed together. The glaze adds a little bit of sweetness and flavour to the bread, but if you prefer to leave it out, you’ll still love this bread!
I loved enjoying a slice of this bread with my afternoon tea. A little bit of light margarine or sugar-free jam would pair well with this bread but honestly, it’s great just as it is.
Some things that make this bread healthier than your regular banana bread:
- I added some whole wheat flour to increase the fibre content
- I took out the refined white sugar and used a reduced amount of honey
- I substituted unsweetened applesauce for the eggs
Overall, this bread is a nice change to the traditional plain banana bread.
