Banana Bread

Ok, here is the banana bread recipe I promised. It was all gone by the next day, and guess who ate almost all of it? You guessed it. Yours truly! It doesn’t even taste Paleo, at all. It just tastes like, well, banana bread. Except better, for obvious reasons.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 1 cup very ripe mashed  banana   (2-3 medium bananas)
  • ½ cup butter melted + extra butter unmelted for greasing (can use coconut oil, but will have better taste results with butter.)
  • ¼ cup mini chocolate chips (such as the Enjoy Life brand)
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (as always you can just use all honey if you wish.)
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 8.5 x 4.5 loaf pan with butter and place a cut bit of parchment paper that fits in the bottom of the loaf pan inside it flat on the bottom.
  2. Melt the butter. Remove from heat and let cool.
  3. In a medium sized bowl combine the coconut flour, almond flour, cinnamon, baking soda, mini chips, and pinch of salt and mix with a fork to reduce any clumps until thoroughly combined.
  4. In a small bowl add eggs, vanilla extract,  honey and maple syrup and whisk then add mashed banana to the egg mixture and whisk more until well combined.
  5. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry and stir with a spoon until thoroughly combined then add melted butter and continue stirring until well incorporated.
  6. Spoon all of the batter into your greased loaf pan and spread it out evenly across the top.
  7. Place in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Pull out of the oven and let it cool for a minute or so then carefully run a knife along the edges to make sure nothing is sticking and carefully invert it onto your hand or a wire rack and flip it so the bottom is laying flat on the wire rack and let it cool for 20-30 minutes.  Devour!
