Banana Bread – gluten free

3-IMG_23271-IMG_2325ImageImage

I have been experimenting with many variations of a gluten free banana bread recipe. The best so far has been a recipe I found in Elana’s Pantry at http://www.elanaspantry.com/paleo-banana-bread. This is a high protein Paleo recipe that hit the mark. The consistency is soft and juicy and the flavor nutty. This is an excellent snack toasted and served with Raw honey.

Almond meal is made from blanched sweet almonds and is low carb substitute to wheat flour in baking

You do want to use ripe bananas and a regular loaf pan

  • 3 ripe bananas mashed
  • 3 organic large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon organic honey
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 2 cups of a good variety almond meal
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Blend together bananas, eggs, vanilla, honey and coconut oil and pulse in the dry ingredients.
Pour into a greased ( with coconut oil) loaf pan and bake at 350° for about 60 minutes. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean.
Once cool, serve slices with raw organic honey.
