i’m always warring against sugar in my life, because it’s the devil. i do my best to avoid white sugar and any kind of sweetener except for pure maple syrup. i’ve even cut out my date habit, although i don’t really believe that eating fruit is bad for you. i do however love to bake, so i’m always trying to find ways to make things without sugar. i came across this grain free banana bread recipe from nutrition stripped a couple of years ago and never got around to making it, but always had it in the back of my mind. today i found myself with an excess of bananas and decided to give it a shot. i didn’t have almond flour, so i decided to use gluten free flour (rice flour) instead. i adjusted the flour ratios a bit and it turned out delicious. it is admittedly not very sweet, which i like. it’s perfect topped with peanut or almond butter.

ingredients:

  1. 4 ripe bananas
  2. 4 tablespoons melted butter, dairy free butter or coconut oil
  3. 4 eggs
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  5. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  6. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  7. 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  8. 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  9. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  10. 3/4 cup coconut flour
  11. 1/2 cup gluten free all purpose flour

directions:

  1. pre-heat oven to 375
  2. coat a loaf pan with non-stick spray or butter
  3. in a stand mixer or large bowl combine the bananas, butter or coconut oil, eggs & vanilla and mix until blended
  4. add the flours, baking soda & powder, cinnamon, nutmeg & salt into the wet mixture and blend until combined
  5. bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes
